Friends fans can now live out their dream of living in a ‘90s sitcom, with a townhouse currently on the market in Houston, Texas, paying homage to the beloved TV show.

With an asking price of AU$437,000 (US$330,000), the Houston home hit the market on Friday and will make homeowners feel just like they are living in the show's famous fictional New York apartment.

“F·R·I·E·N·D·S – If you loved the TV show, then you’ll love this house,” reads the listing on HAR.com.

The 2,015 square-foot townhouse is a not-so-subtle nod to the ‘90s sitcom, with nostalgic murals, furniture and decor from the iconic show behind every door.

“There are wall murals reminiscent of scenes from the show along with decor and furnishings to make you feel like you’re there,” reads the listing.

Built in 2003, only a year before the NBC sitcom went off the air, the two-bedroom townhouse is something of a time capsule.

Hang out with friends inside your own Central Perk coffee house

The large living room features a mural that will make residents feel as though they’re meeting the Friends gang for a cup of coffee inside Central Perk, while the signature orange couch and cosy side chairs nod to the iconic coffee house.

A nearby wall is painted to resemble the iconic fountain from the show’s opening credits, which residents can enjoy from the grass-like carpet decorating the area.

From there, people can step inside Monica’s kitchen, which boasts signature blue cabinetry, purple walls, and a circular table with mismatched chairs that is reminiscent of where Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Ross, Joey and Phoebe would share snacks and laughs.

“The current owners didn’t ‘monkey’ around when paying attention to details,” reads the listing.

'Pivot!': Townhouse pays homage to favourite Friends characters

Even the stairwell has a splash of Friends-themed art – with a mural of Ross yelling “Pivot!” like he did in season five when struggling to get a sofa up the stairs with Rachel and Chandler.

No Friends house would be complete without a foosball table, which is why there’s one in Joey’s re-imagined games room upstairs. However, this room also has plenty of comfy seating for after a big game.

“After a day of foosball or hanging out with friends at Central Perk, it might be time to check the local entertainment,” notes the listing of the home, which is often listed on Airbnb by the current owners.

Diana Hu, the real estate agent selling the townhouse, told TODAY that that home’s owner, Frank, said the home is “very popular” on Airbnb.

“He mentioned to me that it’s very popular in the Airbnb industry to have a theme for your house,” explained Hu. “He actually gets pretty good bookings for his place.”

Hu also told a local Houston culture site that there has been “a lot of interest” in the Friends-inspired home since it hit the market on Friday, March 18.

“If you like the show Friends, today is your lucky day because we’ve got the perfect townhouse for you,” concludes the listing.
