Yes! I just noticed this while watching an episode from the original series. The scene started with an establishing shot of the Palmer house, and I thought, 'Isn't the door off-center?'

Of course, I thought that because I haven't watched the old series in awhile, and so my most recent viewing of the house was from episode 12.

I think it's meant to be the same house, but for whatever reason they couldn't use the same old house, so this is the closest one they found. It would also explain the different staircase (angle/schmangle, we see enough of it to know, that ain't the same staircase we saw in the Pilot episode).

 

The same house located in Everett, WA was used for the interiors in the pilot and for the interiors / exterior in FWWM. (and so it's the same staircase)

It was sold 3 years ago...

 

 

 

 

I don't see how that makes it the same staircase?

You're saying the same exteriors/interiors were used for the original show and FWWM. And that the house was sold 3 years (not sure what the relevance of that is?)

Filming on The Return started 2 years ago.

Sorry, perhaps I'm missing it, but where is the evidence that it's the same staircase in The Return?

It's the same staircase because David Lynch filmed in the same house in Everett in 2015.

It was already said here or on Reddit.

And in the press .

And paparazzi were here too, I don't give you links because there is at least one major spoiler with a picture or with the name of actors seen in front of the house.

So, the pilot, FWWM and season 3 interiors were filmed in this house in Everett.

Same staircase .

 

Some pictures of the interior were published here few years ago (just before the sale of the house).

There is a picture of the staircase in this house from a real estate company.

This is the staircase seen behind Sarah Palmer in last sunday episode...and the reflection of the entrance door in the mirror :

Judging by the interiors it really looks like the original show and FWWM were filmed in the same house. But the question is why would they use another house exterior and change their mind later. Probably there is some reason for it, but it doesn't make a lot of sense.

A local TV interviewed the former house owner.

Some of You are true detectives. Comparing mirror image, google maps, street view etc. Impressive (most impressive).

Majority of interiors for original show were sound stage sets, not on location. For example that's why on the original show the RR looks bigger than the actual diner, they needed space for tv cameras of the period and crew.
