Earlier this year, “Schitt’s Creek” star Annie Murphy (that’s Alexis Rose for those not in the know) delighted fans by auctioning off the gown she wore to her inaugural red carpet event, the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards. While the auction is now closed (Ew, David!), die-hard Schittheads shouldn’t be deflated as a few other items related to the beloved Pop original series are currently up for grabs. Not only is Murphy also auctioning off the paper plate on which she wrote the lyrics to “A Little Bit Alexis” before recording the song in the studio, but two of the show’s most iconic locations have hit the market, as well!
Hockley Motel, the Mono, Ontario lodging that masked as the Schitt’s Creek/Rosebud Motel throughout the show’s six-year run can now be yours for just under $1.6 million. And for fans with a bit more disposable cash on hand, the mansion where video store tycoon Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) and his family lived before they were taken for a ride by their business manager and forced to relocate to Schitt’s Creek is also for sale!
The colossal pad, which is being offered at $15,735,119 (CAD 19,880,000), consists of an almost unbelievable 14 bedrooms and 16 baths spread across three stories and 24,000 square feet. Located abutting Saint Andrews Park at 30 Fifeshire Rd. in the St. Andrew-Windfields neighborhood of Toronto, the residence is repped by Khoren Mardoyan of HomeLife/Vision Realty Inc.
The over-the-top estate was the brainchild of Toronto condo developer Van Lapoyan, who custom-built the place himself in a project that took more than five years to complete. He initially purchased the 0.55-acre corner plot where the mansion now sits in 2008 and proceeded to demolish the one-story ranch-style house that stood on the premises (which can still be seen via historic Google Street View imagery). The manse’s design process subsequently consumed two years and the construction work an additional three and the property was finally finished in July 2013. Lapoyan named his new home “La Belle Maison,” French for “The Beautiful House.”
