'Modern Family' Dunphy Home Sells for $2.15 Million


The 2,792-square-foot Cheviot Hills property is used for exterior shots, as the homeowners are paid a fee for each on-location shooting.

"Every realtor is just a ninja with a blazer," says Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) in an episode of Modern Family, and a real-life realtor has sold the L.A.-based Dunphy home for $2.15 million.

The 2,792-square-foot Cheviot Hills property — which features four bedrooms, 4½ bathrooms and mahogany hardwood floors — closed just under the $2.35 million asking price. Built in 2006 and initially listed on the market in March, escrow closed May 16.

Still, the Dunphys should be staying put onscreen, since the home is only used for exterior shots and scenes. 20th Century Fox paid the homeowners a fee for each on-location shooting, and will likely renew the arrangement with its new owners. "You might even recognize this home as Claire and Phil Dunphy's house from the hit TV sitcom Modern Family," read the home's listing.
