George Banks wouldn’t have a meltdown over this astronomical selling price! A Colonial-style home in Alhambra, California – which was the setting for the beloved 1991 movie Father of the Bride – sold for its asking price of $1.998 million back in June.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the two-story home from the 1920s went under contract after about a week of being on the market.

Movie lovers are sure to remember the 4,400 square foot home on a half-acre lot. We can’t forget the one-on-one basketball game between Annie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and her overprotective father (Steve Martin) on the property’s outdoor court.

Annie rocked that little black dress and white sneaker in true 1990s style. The infamous basketball scene took place after she announced to her mother (Diane Keaton) and dumbfounded father that she had met a man (George Newbern) in Rome.

The massive home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a sunroom featuring a Batchelder fountain. The enviable, newly-renovated kitchen includes amenities like a fridge that holds up to 90 bottles of wine and french doors that overlook the yard, according to Zillow.

After its 1991 on-screen debut, the Alhambra home – which sits about eight miles from Los Angeles – would be camera-ready again for the 1995 sequel, Father of the Bride II.

The home’s beautiful exterior served as the backdrop for the movies’ myriad of wedding and backyard moments in Father of the Bride and its sequel. However, the interior shots were filmed at another location nearby in California.

The Father of the Bride home previously changed hands five years ago for $1.275 million, according to Los Angeles Times. With so many memories, we think it’s safe to say this beautiful California home is priceless.
