By George! The Father of the Bride House Is for Sale
Franck Eggelhoffer is not included in the sale
Calling all Father of the Bride fans!
An iconic white house featured in the Father of the Bride films is up for sale.
The 1925 Colonial home was used for exterior shots in the 1991 film – starring Steve Martin as doting but penny-pinching dad George Banks, with Diane Keaton as his flustered wife Nina – as well as the 1995 sequel. And if you’ve been saving your money by getting “the cheaper chicken” all these years, it could be yours for just under $2 million.
The Los Angeles home at 500 N. Almansor St., which was used for the films’ wedding scene and famous garage-basketball scenes, features four bedrooms, four baths and a renovated kitchen – plus an additional detached room off the backyard with a full bath. There’s even a cheery sunroom with decorative fountain (swans not included).
Outdoors on its 18,110-square-foot lot is the film’s memorable landscaping and driveway basketball court – with the original hoop where Martin and Kimberly Williams-Paisley played ball on the eve of her character’s wedding.
In fact, Williams-Paisley herself tweeted about the house hitting the market.

The 4,397-square-foot home previously sold three years ago for $1.25 million.
Of course, the Father of the Bride house isn’t the only movie house on the market right now. Last week the Amityville Horror house, where six people were murdered in 1974, was put up for sale for $850,000.
