Could You Actually Afford to Live in Stars Hollow?

Trulia crunched the numbers, in case you're thinking about moving.

If you love Gilmore Girls and the magical town in which it's set, chances are you also love the gorgeous New England homes that serve as the centerpiece of so much family drama. Each home on the show is a unique reflection of the characters: the organized chaos of Mrs. Kim, the rustic charm of Luke Danes, the vibrant coziness of Sookie, and the fun dollhouse where Lorelai and Rory live. The characters love their homes (remember when Lorelai had termites? Now that was drama), and the fans have often fantasized about living in one of them. But how realistic would that be? Trulia crunched some numbers to find out, and the results may surprise you...

1. Sookie St. James.

Sookie's 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home was perfect for their growing family, with lots of nooks at crannies to read in, a porch with a mosquito net to relax in on summer nights, and kitchen fit for a chef. Because of the space, Trulia values it at a pricey $685,000, making it the most expensive home on the list.

2. Lane Kim.

Lane's apartment wasn't too big, but it was pretty central, putting it at $165,000. Affordable for two struggling artists, but is it big enough for twins?!

3. Luke Danes.

Judging by the trailer, it looks like Lorelai and Luke are still together (yay!) and still living at the home they renovated (double yay!), which leaves us wondering what happened to the bachelor pad Luke had perched conveniently above the diner? On one hand, it would be a sign of true commitment for him to sell it, but, on the other hand, it did used to be his beloved father's office. Still, it never hurts to have another $171,000 in your pocket.

4. Lorelai Gilmore.

There's no doubt that the Gilmores love their home. It's where they drink coffee, eat pop tarts, and watch marathons of old, classic movies. They love it so much that Luke and Lorelai expanded it instead of buying the gorgeous colonial masterpiece that is the Twickenham house. And for just $445,000, it could be all yours.
