ACROSS AMERICA — Not every house you see in the movies is a real place, but actual real estate is often used in films. Production companies often pay for the use of the home, and the owner can move back in once filming is completed.
Occasionally, houses made famous in film — or featured in films because they are famous — come on the real estate market. This week in How Much House, we look at properties in California, Connecticut and New York that have been featured in films and television shows.

Year built: 2022 (Photo via Edo Brizio/Coldwell Banker Roadrunner Realty) Pioneertown is a cowboy town founded in 1946 to serve as a movie set for Westerns. The building weren’t just facades, like those found on other sets, but permanent, functional structures. Decidedly not Western are some of the houses that cropped up to serve as homes for locals working as extras in films and others who are drawn to Pioneertown’s neo-Western dining and music venues.
One of those is the brand-new “Infinity House.” This unique home integrates panoramic scenery into all the living areas with floor-to-ceiling windows and smart design, color-changing floss lights that amplify the magic surroundings. (Photo via Edo Brizio/Coldwell Banker Roadrunner Realty) The open layout has two primary suites, each with an ensuite bathroom. The dining area and sleek white kitchen have all the modern features and amenities you’d expect. A gorgeous edgeless swimming pool and hot tub that offer spectacular views of the high desert and Sawtooth Mountain.

Some scenes from “The Godfather” were filmed here, too. Quarry Farm is famous for other reasons, too. It provided the stone used for the Brooklyn Bridge. A stone step bears the initials of John Voorhis, one of the original owners, and an 1867 date. The compound was once owned by R.J. Reynolds tobacco fortune heiress Nancy Reynolds. The compound’s main residence, at 33 Meadow Wood Drive, has a beautiful conservatory that offers 360-degree views of the tranquil estate, offering stunning water views of Byram Harbor and Long Island Sound, serene gardens and outdoor terraces through its glass windows.
