The seven-bedroom house in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where Mary Tyler Moore’s character Mary Richards lived on the third floor, has finally sold after five years on the market for $1,450,000.
The Victorian home first hit the market in 2013 for $2,895,000 which means it has sold for half the original listing price.
The buyer has been identified as the Arrowhead Revocable Land Trust. Twin Cities businessman Bernie Reisberg, told the Star Tribune that the trust is ‘owned by a number of people’ and that the home will be a private residence for ‘a family living there from time to time.’
While the interior scenes were filmed in a studio, exterior shots of the real house located at 2104 Kenwood Parkway were featured prominently in the show, and fans have flocked to the location for years to catch a sight of the iconic home.
