What Would You Pay to Live in the House from Your Favorite Movie

July 15, 2011, Summa Real Estate News

Up House in Utah

The recent Pixar film “Up” seemed to have transcendent popularity, clearly made for children but with plenty of story and content that resonated with adults. As popular as it was, there are certainly some children, and possibly some grown folks as well, who would like to live in the movie. Well, Bangerter Homes is getting as you as close as possible to that reality.

The Utah-based home builder just finished construction on a 2,800-square-foot, four-bedroom replica of the home from Up owned by the protagonist, Carl. Although Carl lived in Oakland, the home’s location will require any prospective resident to transplant to Utah, but if authenticity is one’s priority, it may be worth it.

The home is as perfect a replica as is possible without blueprints (there were none available), right down to interior details, exact colors and replica furniture.

The home will be one of a kind, too, as Disney granted permission for the house with the caveat that, upon completion, plans be turned over to them.

So what kind of premium would you pay for the novelty of living in a home from your favorite movie? The Up house is selling for $399,000
