Summer blockbuster season is underway and movie buffs are shaking with anticipation to see each hit.
In honour of the flicks, we thought it would be cool to share pics of epic homes used in films.
These residences are completely different in style and size, but they’ve all acted as the homes of some of your favourite movie characters.
From grandiose British mansions to dingy New York City apartments, these spaces have housed vampires, superheroes and private investigators. We’re sure these living quarters will jog your memory and inspire architectural envy.
Grab some popcorn and enjoy!
