The 'American Beauty' houses (photos)

These two (somewhat similar) homes were used in the filming of the
1999 Oscar-winning movie "American Beauty."

The exteriors of both the Spacey/Burham home and the Colonel's home next door
were movie sets, located on Blondie Street on the Warner Ranch back lot in Burbank.

The two real homes pictured here were used for the interior shots of those two homes.

The house above is located on Homesdale St. in Brentwood, just northwest of Westwood.
They shot the interior scenes here of the Lester Burnham home (Kevin Spaceyís household.)

The house below is located on Windsor Blvd. in the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles,
They filmed the interior shots of the Colonelís house here.

In one interesting scene involving the Colonel's house, the two Jims (Scott Bakula & Sam Robards)
come to the Colonelís door with their welcome basket. That scene was actually shot three weeks apart.
The angle looking out on the Jims was shot on the Warner Ranch, and the angle looking in on the
Colonel inside the house was shot here in Hancock Park, three weeks between takes.

(These are private homes, so don't trespass and don't disturb the occupants.)
