The Father of the Bride House is Up For Sale
At the beginning of 1991’s Father of the Bride, George Banks’s (played by Steve Martin) picture-perfect home at 24 Maple Drive in San Marino, California serves as an emblem of his picture-perfect life. Then, it becomes the setting for the stress, anguish, bittersweet moments, and ultimately blissful denouement surrounding the titular bride’s nuptials. (Not to mention everything that goes down in Father of the Bride Part II.) Now, all that silver screen history can be yours.
The house, which is actually at 500 N Almansor Street in Alhambra, California, just went on the market for a cool $1,998,000. It’s a 1925 colonial, with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and nearly 4440 square feet, along with a new gourmet kitchen, custom cabinetry, a 600-square-foot detached room with a full bath, and a whole lot more.
Sharp FOTB fanatics out there might have noticed that the exterior looks a little different from when the Banks pretend-lived there. That’s because this was actually one of two homes used in filming. The cinematic exterior actually belongs to a different house in Pasadena, while this one was used for backyard wedding scenes (there’s 18,110 square feet of property in all) and that infamous father-daughter basketball game.
You can get more details on the sale from Zillow, and for what it’s worth, Annie Banks herself (actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley) seems invested in the fate of her former faux home.
