The Simpsons' home is one of the most iconic houses in television history, and the fact that the house is featured so prominently in every episode makes it instantly recognizable to anyone who's ever watched the show.
Which is why the Fox network decided it would make a great grand prize for some lucky Simpsons fanatic out there, so they hired homebuilders Kaufman and Broad (now KB Homes) to make an exact replica of 742 Evergreen Terrace.
The replica Simpsons house was built in Henderson, Nevada in 1997, but when the winner Barbara Howard was offered either the house or $75k cash she took the cash because the house was too far away from her family farm.
The original Simpsons replica home featured rooms decorated to look just like the original, a replica of Bart's Treehouse in the backyard and an El Barto tag on the side of the house painted by Matt Groening himself.
Sadly, the fact that Barbara didn't take the house meant it became just another piece of commercial property, and the new owners took it from totally toon-tastic to bland and boring when it was sold in 2001.
