In 1996, a 16-year-old high school student finds out she's a witch and her two aunts offer guidance on how to control her newly-discovered magical powers.
Sabrina The Teenage Witch, played by Melissa Joan Hart aired for seven seasons. While the series was set in the made-up town of Westbridge, Massachusetts, and filmed in Los Angeles, the exterior of the house is right here in Freehold at 64 East Main Street.
Why did creators choose this house for the series? No one is quite sure. However, the fictional town of Westbridge was on the east coast, and according to an interview, the creator was looking for a Victorian.
Freehold attorney Scott Beskin was the owner of the Sabrina house when production was beginning. He reportedly was approached by scouts for the series and was offered a couple of hundred dollars to photograph the outside of what was then his law office. He signed a release giving ABC permission to use it in the show and the rest is history.
This property has been home to many different businesses over the years. Its most recent owners Three Buddies LLC have it on the market for just shy of $2 million.
So, what does the inside of Sabrina's house really look like? It's not what you saw on TV.
