The West house was the home and primary residence of the West family since February 1974, when it was purchased by Ted West to house his wife Rita and son Wolf. It was located on 85 John Mulgan street, Auckland.
The West house is a two story brick-and-tile house with a long driveway in the front, and a large backyard in the back.
The interior of the house consist of a large living room combined with the dining area, and an open solution into the kitchen. A door from the living room leads to the downstairs basement.
A hallway going off the living room holds doors to the bathroom, the toilet, the master bedroom and three smaller bedrooms for the kids.
West family purchase Edit
The house was purchased by Ted West in February 1974, after his release from a three year stay in prison, with money he earned from cracking the safe in the tavern. It housed his wife Rita and son Wolf.
During the Wests' conflict with the Horsemen in 1981, the latter fired a shot at a screen in the fence on the front porch. It would never be replaced.
Wolf and Cheryl take over Edit
Ted had been moved to a retirement village in older age, but burned his unit down so he could move back home again.

Behind the scenes Edit
The real house is located at 85 Royal View Road, Te Atatu South, Auckland 0610, New Zealand. The owner, Angie, said she gave them permission to film there because she had no idea the show would have such a impact. The house has received unwanted visitors, with groups drinking on the deck, moving around furniture, a motorcycle club parking all over the lawn, among other things.
The interior shots are filmed in a studio.
