Real-Life 'Up' House Sold to Disney-Loving Couple

Who wouldn't want to live in the amazing house from Pixar's animated feature, "Up?"

Two lucky people actually get to -- well, if not the actual house, then one that looks just like it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Clinton and Lynette Hamblin of Petaluma, CA had been searching for a home that had either a colorful exterior or a bright blue kitchen like the one in "Up." They had been searching mainly in California until they learned about the home in the Salt Lake City suburb of Herriman, Utah, that was built based on the house in the film.

The home, which was officially recognized by Disney as the "Up" house, was built by Adam Bangerter. "It illustrates what home ownership really is, and it's not an investment," he told the Associated Press. "It's part of the American dream to have a house to care for, to improve and to make part of your family."

The house in "Up" is the home of Carl and Ellie Frederickson, purchased shortly after they were married. After Ellie dies, Carl shuts himself into the house and becomes a curmudgeonly hermit -- that is, until he sets out on an accidental adventure with a young boy named Russell, a member of the "Wilderness Explorers."

(Yeah, we're tearing up just thinking about it.)

No word on whether the Hamblins plan on turning the house into an airship, though that certainly seems like the inevitable next step. Until then, check it out in its non-flying state.
