In the FOX series Party of Five, an irresponsible older brother (Matthew Fox) must take care of his siblings after their parents are killed by a drunk driver. The other siblings are played by Scott Wolf, Neve Campbell, Lacey Chabert, and Jacob Smith. Others in the cast include Jennifer Love Hewitt, Paula Devicq, Scott Grimes, Michael Goorjian, Jeremy London, Tom Mason, and Mitchell Anderson.
The Party of Five series was never a big success but was very important to the growth of the fledgling FOX network. It started out at #125 in the ratings and, over the course of four seasons, made it to #57. The ratings then started to tumble after and it was cancelled after six years on the air, in 2000.
The family’s San Francisco house was featured at the start of every episode and remains very identifiable to fans of the series. The home was sold in October 1999 for $5.4 million. It was recently sold again for $6.55 million. A different interior was used for the show but the real house sports tall ceilings with chandeliers, a large kitchen, a media/family room with cathedral ceilings, two decks and an elevator that will take you from the garage to the first level.
