You know how your husband has luxuriant eyebrows and is a public defender? And how he married you, the daughter of a west coast real estate tycoon? And how you’re still together, even though he brought a bad boy from Chino into your house and then let him live in your pool house? Oh, not you? We must have been thinking of our other friends, Sandy and Kirsten Cohen from Orange County, California (otherwise known as The O.C.). They’re on our mind because their Italian villa-style house is up for sale for $8.25 million, complete with six bedrooms, five full baths, two partial baths and everything else you’ll remember from the hit show. Except, there is no pool house. If you buy this place, where is your misunderstood brooder going to take women for sex? Ugh, it’s just so sad.
And it’s not just sad for Seth Cohen and Captain Oats, but us, too. It’s this house where we saw Anna Stern (of the Pittsburgh Sterns, y’know) attempt to seduce Seth with a hand-drawn comic book (aw!). It’s also here where Summer Roberts donned a Wonder Woman costume, which cemented her as the sexpot of Orange County (sorry, Julie Cooper), again to seduce Seth (aw!). And it’s here where, even after being punched in the face in Orange County, that boy from Chino, Ryan Atwood, lived. And engaged in consensual groping and sex with Marissa Cooper to the tune of Aqualung.
But now the 6,376-square-foot property can be yours, complete with all of the Cohen family memories. Except, one more scandal, the home is actually in Malibu, which is part of Los Angeles County and not The O.C.
Okay, let’s take a peek inside. California, here we come:

The O.C. HouseKirsten was terrible in the kitchen, but just think of all the salt bagels you could put on this granite counter-top. Those require nothing but smear. Sotheby's

The O.C. HouseJust picture Anna and Summer sandwiching Seth on this couch. Don't you want that for your kids? Or you? Hm?Sotheby's
