Part of ABC’s classic ‘90s lineup, Boy Meets World introduced viewers to 11-year-old Cory Matthews and his world of family and friends who help him navigate the different paths of life, from childhood to adulthood.

Centered around the lively Matthews family, the sitcom starts off with Cory and Shawn Hunter as sixth-graders. His teacher, Mr. Feeny, becomes an integral part of their lives, always keeping them on track by incorporating words of wisdom into his class lessons.

Boy Meets World follows the journey of Cory, Shawn, Topanga Lawrence and Cory's brother, Eric Matthews, experiencing life's ups and downs together. Whether you watched the series growing up or are only just discovering this cult favorite, the Matthews house is an unforgettable landmark of the hit show.

Here's everything you need to know about what happened to the house in Boy Meets World.

Who lived in the Boy Meets World house?

Throughout the seven seasons of Boy Meets World, Cory and the rest of the Matthews family lived in a two-story home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As Cory and his three siblings grew up, viewers saw them transition from sharing bedrooms to moving out as adults, but they always came back to their childhood home. Of course, the Matthews' household wouldn't have been complete without Cory's best friend, Shawn, along with his childhood sweetheart, Topanga.

Episodes explored the root of family issues, the complexity of relationships, and the celebration of several graduations-all while making fans laugh, relate, and get all the feels.

While the show’s setting was in Philadelphia, the Boy Meets World house is actually located across the country in Studio City, California at 4196 Colfax Ave. Built in 1940, the home was only used for exterior shots, and no filming took place inside of it. Instead, the show’s creators built a separate interior set on a studio. This gave them the freedom to come up with their own original floor plan that worked best for the storyline.

In 2016, the 2,108-square-foot house made headlines when it hit the market for a whopping $1.595 million. According to Trulia, the Boy Meets World house was sold in February 2017 for $1.299 million and continues to be the home of a lucky family.

When taking a closer look, it’s clear that the Boy Meets World house is different than the one shown on television. The California house has two bedrooms, two baths with a spacious kitchen, bright sunroom, formal living and dining rooms.

Without a doubt, the master bedroom is a standout part of the beautiful home with its own cozy fireplace and a private sun deck. But it’s the guest house that’s the true bonus of the Boy Meets World house. The 880-square-foot detached guest house (with a garage!) makes hosting a breeze. And yes, there's no treehouse in sight, but there are green gardens, a pergola perfect for the summers, and outdoor dining areas to enjoy with loved ones.

Can I visit the Boy Meets World house?

If you happen to recognize the Boy Meets World house while out on a stroll, you have the liberty to take a picture, but the private gate and tall hedges discourages fans from doing so. Currently, the Boy Meets World house is a private residence and loyal viewers of the ‘90s sitcom can’t step inside the home.

Luckily, you can walk down memory lane by re-watching all seven seasons of Boy Meets World on Amazon and Hulu. And if that's not enough, continue on Cory and Topanga's adventure in Girl Meets World with their daughter Riley, also available on Amazon.
