If your dream wedding includes a backyard reception, swans in the bathtub, a quirky (that’s an understatement) wedding planner, and your dad taking wedding stress out on the hotdog buns at the supermarket, today is your lucky day! The home featured in “Father of the Bride” is now on the market and could be yours for a humble $1.998 million.
While the front of the house may look familiar, don’t be fooled. The 90’s chick flick used two homes for filming, but this colonial home located in Alhambra, California, was used for every part of the movie you would remember- from the famous basketball scene between Steve Martin and Kimberly Williams Paisley to the outdoor wedding reception. This 4,397-square-foot property built in 1925 is the Ritz Carlton of the suburbs, featuring a grand entry, walnut-paneled den, formal living and dining rooms, and Batchelder fountain in the sun room. With four bedrooms and three and a half baths, a 3 car garage, hardwood floors, custom built ins, and updated Thermador kitchen appliances, this elegant and cozy house will not only blow you away but will also make you nostalgic for the 1991 rom-com tearjerker. Oh, did I mention the 90 bottle wine refrigerator and a 600-square-foot detached private living area with a full bath?
And before you ask, yes, the original basketball court and hoop from the film are included with your purchase.
This house is a dream! Now let’s find yours.
