  • The Brady Bunch House Lance Bass

There had been concern the Brady Bunch house would be bought by developers and demolished.

Lance Bass, the former member of boy band *NSYNC and a television and radio personality, says he was "used" by Douglas Elliman, the real estate firm representing the listing, to drive up the price of the house. Bass wrote Maureen McCormick - also known as Marcia Brady - congratulated Bass and he replied she'd be his first dinner guest.

"Congratulations", she tweeted. "May all your problems from here on out always be solved in a half hour!"

On Sunday the singer explained what he says happened on a Instagram post he titled "Here's a story of a shady Brady". "Isn't a deadline a deadline?" "This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating amongst friends, family, and fans alike", Lance wrote.

Bass said "we were prepared to go even higher but totally discouraged by the sellers agent, they will outperform any bid with unlimited resources".

Realtor Ernie Carlswell confirmed that competition for the house was fierce, with multiple offers received from celebrities and "regular families". The asking price was almost $2 million but no word on how much Bass bid or how much the competing buyer is willing to pay.

While the interior layout of the Dilling Street property does not resemble the famous TV show house (interior scenes for The Brady Bunch were filmed in a studio), Carswell described the classic home as "a postcard of exactly what homes looked like in the 1970s", including wood-paneled walls, floral wallpaper, a built-in bar in the living room, and a working intercom. According to the Douglass Elliman site, the almost 2,500-square-foot home features "perfectly preserved 1970's decor" and serves as a "postcard of American 70's style and its special culture". Enormous, lush backyard gardens & lawn, completely private & serene.

CNN has reached out to Bass and Carswell for additional comment.
