If you take a tour of Hollywood homes, you’ve probably been told that a certain house is from Fresh Prince of Bel Air. The house they are identifying is located at 417 Amapola Lane in Bel Air. I’m not sure why the guides claim this, as it is definitely the wrong house. Other than the white paint, there is really no resemblance. It’s possible they are trying to just make the tour seem more interesting. This happens a lot with the Friends fountain in New York City as well. Visitors are often told they are looking at the fountain, with no clue that it’s actually located at the Warner Bros. Ranch in Burbank.
The house that was used for establishing shots is not in Bel Air at all, but actually located in Brentwood. Located at 251 North Bristol Avenue, the house is surrounded by a fence and trees. It’s quite tough to see the whole house, but there are a couple spots where you can peak through, just enough to see the front of the house. It has not changed at all over the years. Remember to just look from public areas, and not to trespass or bother the owners.
Much of the info I found on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air house came from Lindsay over at iamnotastalker.com so please go check her page out. She runs a great site.
