Historic ‘Top Gun' House on the Move

Keith Pirillo

The famous "Top Gun" house in Oceanside was on the move Thursday.

Also known as the Graves House, the bright blue Victorian-style home was featured in the 1986 action film and now fans will find it in an unexpected place-- just up the street from its original location.

In the movie, actor Tom Cruise arrives at the house on a motorcycle to meet his onscreen girlfriend played by Kelly McGillis.

Carefully maneuvered up Pacific Street, the historic home is settled at the new Oceanside Beach Resort across from the Oceanside Pier.

S.D. Malkin Properties, which broke ground on the Oceanside Beach Resort in 2019, expects to open the hotel with its newly acquired "Top Gun" house this year.
