Homes: Rick's House

After waking from his coma and leaving the hospital, Rick finds a bicycle and manages to make his way home. Once home he finds that his family is gone, the house is deserted, and leaves Rick in despair. As he sits on the front steps he sees someone walking down the street but is knocked out before he can realize it’s a zombie.

The house which serves as Rick’s in the show is actually located near Atlanta’s Grant Park.  Grant Park is Atlanta’s oldest city park and in addition to being a city park, it is also home to Zoo Atlanta and Atlanta Cyclorama.  Together with the surrounding neighborhood, also known as Grant Park, this area of Atlanta is the city’s largest historic district.

As you can tell from the images below, this house is currently unoccupied and for sale.  This surely made the production team’s job easier in making it look abandoned for the show.

    I visited the house last night, and there is no tree in the front yard anymore. The front yard is filled with clutter from them recently taking down the tree, and it piles into the street. So it’s pretty easy to find it right now, unless they are cleaning it up this week.

    Looking at the 2nd pic at the top with Rick sitting on the front porch, I can’t help but notice the pile of mail spilling out of the box…who was still delivering mail!!! 😀 Brings a whole new respect for the postman LOL. Or maybe Lori ran away with Shane sooner than we think …hehehe

    That is awesome! That IS directly in front of the zoo! I’m from Atlanta area and lived in middle Georgia before moving to FL. We lived very near the current filming location. Wish I was still there. I recognize SOOO many of the locations on the show.

    We were just in Atlanta on July 23-25. We couldn’t resit to go to locations either. As of then it was still for sale. Do you have a place to upload pics? Or should I put it on flickr & link it?

    I was in Atlanta recently for a teacher’s conference and couldn’t resist the opportunity to look for Rick’s house. The owner came out as I was taking pictures and very graciously invited my friend and me in the see the renovations she is doing to the interior. All I have to say about them is wow. I love old houses and this one is going to be absolutely incredible. You can’t tell from the show, but Rick’s house is right across the street from the entrance to the zoo. I hope the house doesn’t stay empty for long. Great old houses deserve families!

    I am the owner of Sheriff Rick’s house located at 817 Cherokee and owned it during the shoot. We’ve met many fans on the front steps taking photos in front of the house. It’s not yellow anymore nor is it for sale. It doesn’t have an address on the front due recent work and exterior painting. It will most likely be available for rent once we get the renovations completed by early summer. Perhaps Rick and his family will move back in. Sure looks better than the way he left it!

    Address for the house is at 817 Cherokee Ave. Currently for sale for 359,900 according to Zillow

    I also linked a photo on your blog to it and put a link to your site if that’s ok

    • Welcome Jeff! Thank you for the flickr link. I had no idea the house had sat empty for so long. It was in decent shape when I had the chance to take pics of it but then the production crew had only been gone for a month or so at that time.

      It’s fine to link to anything here or use any of the pics so feel free. Thanks again!

    I almost bought this house in 2005. It was vacant then and it’s still vacant. Funny.
