The Interiors and Exteriors of "The Cohen House" Located in Malibu!

This is the actual interiors of the external house we see in nearly every episode of The O.C..Notice how the inside looks completely different than what we saw on TV. This is because the creators used only the outside of this Malibu home - the interiors were inspired by another house on the same street, that was where the interior pilot episode shots were filmed. After the pilot episode, the show was shot inside Raleigh Manhattan Beach Studios. A set was created that took the likes of this house and the interiors of the pilot episode house and married them together. Sadly, in late 2018 the house that we saw the interiors of in the pilot episode was burned down. Read about that more here.

Behind the Scenes: Pictures of Seth's room from the pilot episode

Here are two super rare images of Seth's room that was featured in the pilot episode only. The pilot episode was filmed in a real house located in Malibu, on the same cul-de-sac as the two story exterior house we see in nearly every episode. Ironically this house was a one story. 

After the pilot episode, Seth's room was rebuilt in Raleigh Studios located in Manhattan Beach, CA, along with the pool house, Cohens house, harbor school etc.. Sadly the house used in the pilot later burned down from the California fires in 2018 (to read all about that go here). You will notice that Seth's room in the pilot episode is decorated much different then the rest of the series. Many of the band posters were switched out with more indie type bands but the majority of the other accessories remained similar.
