Beaufort, S.C.: $3.5 million

It has to be the most famous movie kitchen of all time.

When a group of uber-cool baby boomers (who happen to include the likes of Glenn Close, Kevin Kline, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Berenger, William Hurt, JoBeth Williams, Mary Kay Place and Meg Tilly) started clearing dishes and dancing to classic R&B, this house earned a spot in cinema history.

And while it's been 30 years since "The Big Chill" hit theaters, that classic kitchen hasn't changed, says Catherine Donaldson, agent with Celia Dunn Sotheby's International Realty. "It looks exactly like it did in the film."

The house, dubbed "Tidalholm," was built circa 1853 on "The Point" -- a peninsula that juts out into the Beaufort River. The wraparound porch overlooks the water, and the home has its own private dock. In the middle of Beaufort's historic district, it's included on the National Register of Historic Places.

Besides a kitchen that Hollywood made famous, the 5,868-square-foot home has seven bedrooms, seven full baths (plus two powder rooms), original plaster walls and molding, plus a dining room chandelier that is candles only, Donaldson says. "You don't find that anymore."
