The "Father of the Bride" Home Is on the Market—Tour It Yourself
The home featured in the cherished Father of the Bride movies is officially on the market in the Los Angeles suburb of Alhambra. Yes, the home that George Banks nearly sacrificed his life for in the face of a bludgeoning wrecking ball wielded by an obstinate Mr. Habib could be yours for just short of $2 million. Aside from the fact that George Martin, Diane Keaton, and Martin Short once walked its hallowed halls, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is an American classic in its own right. With its navy blue shutters, ruby-red door, and crisp white paint job, the estate practically screams American dream home.
Save a few updates to the main entrance and a subtle landscaping makeover, the colonial-style home has managed to preserve its Father of the Bride charm, basketball court included. The famous den where a disgruntled George would ponder life remains intact, along with the kitchen where he and Nina conceived their "oops" baby, and the backyard where Annie and Brian said "I do." While there's no trace of a state-of-the-art nursery upstairs, we feel that Frank's eccentric design touch is still palpable throughout.
The 4397-square-foot home, built in 1925, also features a sunroom, a gourmet kitchen complete with a 90-bottle wine fridge, a formal dining room, an expansive basement, and a three-car garage. Tour the Father of the Bride home for yourself:
