"Mary Tyler Moore" House for Sale

Did you ever want to turn the world on with your smile?

Did you ever wish you could take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?

Did you ever want to live in the same house where Mary Richards and Rhoda Morgenstern lived and loved and made merry?

Now you can!

The Minneapolis house made famous in the classic and inimitable 1970s TV series, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, is now for sale. Here's what the ad in the Star-Tribune says:

Several famous people lived here: Made famous by Mary Tyler Moore, this is the house where fictional TV characters Mary, Rhoda and Phyllis lived. In reality, it was the home of Naomi and Evan Maurer, former director of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

Now, about the house: It's a Queen Anne, Victorian-style house built in 1892. It has nearly 6,500 finished square feet, including five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a three-car garage. The house has multiple fireplaces, a library, a study, lots of natural woodwork and the occasional MTM drive-by fan.

Buy it now for $1.295 million.

You can see a picture of the familiar house in the Star-Tribune's real estate section here.

Isn't it obvious from that photo that love is all around, no need to fake it?

We're gonna make it, after all!
