In our newest ‘Home of the Week’, we deviate from our usual in-depth looks at the most unique and stunning properties on coldwellbanker.com, for a gander at our favorite home from a TV show not nominated for an Emmy.
Seeing how both Emmy nominated shows deal with politics, they both also take place in one of our favorite homes in the world—the White House. While neither program actually films in Washington D.C.

The unexpected belle of the ball at the Emmy’s this year is the surprise hit, House of Cards, from everyone’s favorite digital movie source, Netflix.

The next nominee for “Outstanding Home in a Drama Series” is none other than Winterfell Castle, which is widely considered to be the capital of the North. Winterfell is located between the capital of the Seven Kingdoms (King’s Landing) and the dreaded “Wall” that keeps civilized society separate from Wildlings and very angry frozen zombies.
Sometimes, you just have to grow up and move on out of that bachelor pad you own in the penthouse of the Ritz Carlton. In season 2 of Boardwalk Empire, New Jersey’s friendliest criminal traded in panoramic ocean views on the boardwalk for a more family friendly and slower paced lifestyle. And by slower paced [...]
The 2012 Emmy Nominations were announced last week and Mad Men, the four-time best drama series winner, took top honors with 17 nominations in total; one for each month the cult hit was off the air due to contract disputes.
