If You've Got $1.998 Million Dollars and a Love for 90's Movies, Have We Got the House for You!Generally, when watching a movie, you don't think too much about the location of the shoot as it very well may be a set that has been masterfully built to look like, say, Narnia. But harken back to the days of the 90's when Steve Martin was portraying everyone's favorite stressed-out dad in Father of the Bride. If the memory conjures up deep swells of sentimentality, you could always make your way to Zillow and put your hat in the ring to BUY the house where the film was shot. Don't worry, it'll only cost you $1,998,000.
My sentiments exactly, Steve. Bear in mind that the house is actually not in totality the one that you see in the movie. The large colonial-style house currently listed on Zillow is where all of the backyard and wedding scenes were shot, such as the memorable basketball scene between the daddy and daughter. The front of the house featured in the movie was a completely different abode located in the Pasadena area. Sorry to crush any dreams of recreating scenes - you'd need two mortgages! While the interior shots for the movie were actually done on a sound stage, check out these photos of the house's actual interior! The 4,397-square-foot, two-story Colonial home was built in 1925 with four bedrooms, a decorative Batchelder fountain (don't worry, I had to look that up too), and a 90-bottle wine fridge in the gorgeous kitchen. Plenty of room to stock up for FOTB viewing parties/drinking games. Bottoms up!
And then, of course, the memorable basketball court and backyard!
I may love me some Steve Martin but I think I'll keep my $1.998 million...in my imagination. H/T: Realsimple.com, Refinery29.com, Compass.com
