In 2011, two self-described Disney fanatics found the home of their dreams in an unexpected place—Utah.
The house, a replica of the colorful home featured in the animated movie Up, is located in the Salt Lake City suburb of Herriman. Clinton and Lynette Hamblin of Petaluma, California had been looking for a house with some of the same flourishes as the one in the movie, such as a multi-colored exterior or a blue kitchen with retro appliances. They looked all over California until they saw a news report about the house in Utah, which includes every possible detail from the movie and is even officially recognized as the Up house by Disney. Even more surprising was the $400,000 price tag, which was far less than the homes they were looking at.
