From the Psycho motel to the Great Gatsby mansion, marvel at the most iconic houses on film

cn_image_size_great-gatsby-movie-house.png

When it comes to famous dwellings on film, there are some places we'd kill to live in - and some we'd probably be killed if we did. 

We could spend hours hanging out in the idyllic house with blue shutters from 2004's The Notebook (and we wouldn't object if Ryan Gosling popped by, either). 

And we'd happily kick back with a cocktail by the pool at the sleek Beverly Hills bolthole used to film The Big Lebowski in 1998.  

Wild horses wouldn't keep us away from the art deco magnificence of Sydney landmark St Patrick's Seminary, the unlikely location for the fictional New York town of West Egg in Baz Luhrmann's hit movie, The Great Gatsby.

However, we're less keen to spend time in the California-based Bates House and Motel from Hitchcock's classic 1960 thriller Psycho

And the Gothic castle where Edward Scissorhands retreats to after being rejected by society in the 1992 fantasy just makes us feel a bit sad.

We can look back on all these unforgettable movie abodes, and more, thanks to this genius infographic from housesimple.co.uk.

Come remind yourselves of the fictional - and real - locations of film-land's best and most dramatic digs, below.
