It is not rare for movie characters to inspire profound envy. Impeccable dress, a smart job, a monied existence in an exciting locale—all are fodder for audience members' covetous feelings. Not the least among such film elements are where a character lives, be it the sprawling Xanadu of Charles Foster Kane (Orson Welles) in Citizen Kane (1941) or the cramped-but-charming Parisian garret of painter Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) in An American in Paris (1951). Here are some of our favorite cinematic abodes. For reasons of brevity—and sanity—we narrowed our focus to modern homes of the 20th century (and a few from the 21st). Most of them actually exist; a few are fake constructs. But all are domiciles many of us would like to call home, or at least pay a visit to. Here, in eight short minutes, are 37 stylish houses as seen in 39 movies.
