Virgin River filming sites: Doc's house

I've never been the type of person who visits houses that are listed for sale out of curiosity. But I suddenly saw the appeal of doing so when I learned of a showing for the home that's "Doc's house" in Netflix's Virgin River series.

The series is filmed throughout Metro Vancouver, and the Queen Anne-style home that is Doc's house is located in the Vancouver suburb of New Westminster. It's up for sale for $2.25 million CAD, and when I learned there was going to be an open house recently ... well, that's the day I became a looky-loo.

The house is stunning! It has five bedrooms and is 5,363 square feet in size. It sits on a lot that's a quarter of an acre in size, just steps from a great park. It has some serious star appeal too: Besides Virgin River, the house has starred in the shows Supernatural, Jinxed and Caprica, to name just a few.

Most of the filming for the Virgin River series is done on sets that are built on soundstages. But exterior shots and establishing shots are done at the house, and the sets themselves are based on the look and layout of the real house. Here's a look in photos:

The real "Doc's house" is on a quiet residential street in the Queen's Park area of New Westminster, a Vancouver suburb.

There's been a lot of discussion about the two doors: The solid outer door and the stained glass inner door. Here's a look.

The foyer, first seen in Episode 1 when Mel enters the house to meet Doc.

The room that's seen most often is Doc's waiting room with adjoining examination room. IRL, it's the home's billiards room.

Doc's office. IRL it's actually the first room off the foyer.

The kitchen is completely different in the show -- it's a set -- but this is the home's real kitchen.


The home has a beautiful sun room that wasn't seen in Season 1. I hope they shoot some scenes in it in Season 2.

The elegant dining room, also not seen in Season 1.

The TV room. The TV is in the cabinet to the right of the fireplace.

Um yes ... of course I had a photo taken at the front door of the house!
