(Newser) – The "Brady Bunch House" has a buyer, and it's HGTV. "I'm excited to share that HGTV is the winning bidder and we'll restore the home to its 1970s glory as only HGTV can," David Zaslav, CEO of parent company Discovery, announced Tuesday in a second-quarter earnings call, reports CNN. "We'll bring all the resources to bear to tell safe, fun stories with this beloved piece of American TV history," Zaslav added, promising more details in the coming months.

The Los Angeles home at 11222 Dilling Street, whose exterior featured in The Brady Bunch, was described as "featuring perfectly preserved 1970's décor." Last sold for $60,000 in 1973, it was listed for $1.9 million. It's believed to have gone for much more than that, though. On Instagram, a "heartbroken" Lance Bass of NSYNC said his offer on the house, "which was WAY over the asking price," was initially accepted before another party offered to buy the place "at any cost."
