Live Out Your Childhood Dreams In The 10 Things I Hate About You House For $1.6M

10 Things I Hate About You wasn't just a movie. It was a literature lesson, a fashion moment, and a romantic awakening all in one. This adaptation of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew was set in 1990s Seattle (but filmed in Tacoma), with lots of scenes filmed at the home of the Stratford sisters. And if you have a cool $1.6 million, that home can be yours. Get ready to act out the pregnancy suit scene whenever you wish.
The five-bedroom 5,760 sq. ft Victorian home was built in in 1907 and overlooks Puget Sound. According to real estate agent Jeff Jensen, it hasn't been on the housing market for over 30 years, and the photographs show how diligently the home has been cared for. It still boasts original Victorian woodwork, including stunning carved wood stair railings and mantelpieces. Stained glass windows and built-in cabinets keep the place feeling true to its time, but don't worry, there's still plenty of home upgrades for the modern family. A finished basement with a party bar can entertain Kat (Julia Stiles) and Patrick's (Heath Ledger, we miss you) RiotGrrl friends, while Bianca (Larisa Oleynik) can cook dinner parties in the spacious kitchen with steel appliances and a granite island.

The immaculate house includes original Victorian exterior features, like that wrapping porch where Kat and her dad have their heart-to-heart. There's also a balcony and tall, mature trees along the property.

Walking into the home, you're instantly dazzled by the home's original woodwork, which has been beautifully maintained over the years. This is where Bianca convinced Kat to accompany her to a house party — and where her dad forced her to put on a pregnancy suit in front of her best friend. So embarrassing.

The living room is instantly recognizable from the film. We can't get over that lovely curved bay window.
