Homeland, the new Showtime hit series house where the Brody family live is a really nice ranch on Knob Hill Court in the neighborhood of Mountainbrook, North Carolina. Charlotte, just north of Mountainbrook, is also a location for filming because it resembles the Washington, D. C./Virginia area where the TV series is set. Production of Homeland is taking place in the Charlotte area and South Park, in particular, because the architecture of the homes resembles suburban Virginia. “It really captures the mainstream suburban America look, which is perfect for our series because it’s called ‘Homeland’ and it’s about the threat to that,” said executive producer Michael Cuesta, per South Park magazine/Charlotte Observer. I want to show you the Homeland Brody TV house including the inside, and talk about the Homeland story line and main star on the show Claire Danes.
Love the brick steps and tall brick walls surrounding the ranch house used on the Homeland show.
A close up of the Homeland house with Nicholas Brody’s wife Jessica, played by Morena Baccarin, daughter Dana, played by Morgan Saylor, and son Chris, played by Jackson Pace, leaving to see him for the first time in eight years and who they thought was probably dead long ago.
Homeland won best drama and the star of the show, Claire Danes, won best actress in a drama on the Golden Globes last week. She so deserves best actress award. Showtime is of course renewing this series and I cannot wait for season 2 to begin. Claire Danes is mesmerizing as Carrie Mathison, a Central-Intelligence Agency officer, who is convinced that marine Brody, played by Damian Lewis, who was held captive by Al-Qaeda as a prisoner of war, was turned and is now a threat to the United States.
I am a bit obsessed about the show myself. Carrie is revealed to have bipolar and the CIA job keeps her sane as well as makes her insane. She states on the first show “I’m just making sure we don’t get hit again. I missed something before and I CAN’T let that happen again,” referring to 911. And so begins her obsession with Brody, starting by illegally bugging his home to see if he is the one reported to have been “turned.”
Carrie spends a lot of time watching Brody and we initially get a look at the Brody house through her surveillance videos.
Nice kitchen cabinets with modern pulls on the drawers and cabinets. I like the open shelving above and under cabinet lighting showing off the rooster and the criss-cross chairs.
Brody cooking a nice breakfast for the family on the open to family room stove top. Proof that even suspected terrorist help out in the kitchen, so he can’t be all that bad can he? At this point in the Homeland show we do not know if he is a hero or is up to something sinister, which the latter seems the most likely.
Exposed brick inside of the home has some of it natural and some of it painted white above the handy desk.
Love this chair in their bedroom. I wish there was information on where to buy the furniture and accessories used on TV and Movie sets.
Here is the (not so happy to be together just yet) family being interviewed by a TV host about Brody’s return home.
Fun pillow on the chair that I like a lot, but I don’t think it is helping the family’s mood.
Daughter Dana sits on a wicker chair in her bedroom. I don’t know what kind of chair this is, so I am going to call it The Tulip chair.
The back patio is nice with part of it being covered. It’s a good place for Brody’s wife, Jessica, to hide out and contemplate her situation since Brody now suspects she was not faithful during his long-time capture of eight years. But, I wonder how faithful Brody is going to be to his homeland in season 2? Thank you Showtime for airing Homeland, a great timely thriller for us bite our nails to every Sunday night. If anyone knows more about the Homeland Brody house, leave a comment and let me know.
