Utah home inspired by Disney movie 'Up' sold

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Two self-described Disney "fanatics" have purchased a house in Utah modeled after the colorful home featured in the animated movie "Up."

Discovering the house in the Salt Lake City suburb of Herriman, Utah, was a dream come true for Clinton and Lynette Hamblin of Petaluma, Calif. The couple 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 initially looked in California until they saw news reports about the house in Utah that included every possible detail from the movie and was even officially recognized as the "Up" house by Disney. Even more surprising was the $400,000 price tag, which was less than homes they looked at in California.

For them, however, the real attraction to the house was it underscored the overriding theme of the movie.

Utah will get another Liberal from California because they can’t afford California’s home prices.

Why wouldn’t it have balloons as part of it?

Seems like it’d be the talk of the town.

Maybe they should build a copy in every state, with a certificate of authenticity of course, so someone can try to collect the whole set.

They should build in a number of chambers to hold multi-colored weather balloons that can be filled from helium tanks in the attic and inflated at a button push.

Not that the house will fly, but that they can really make it look like the house. Charge a premium for that.

Just goes to show, there are still a few people out there with money to blow or spend on whatever.

The house sits all by itself. Obviously, the neighbors all found out Ed Asner lived there, tore down their houses, and moved to California...

Must be fake. Isn’t that house is sitting somewhere in Latin America, by a huge water fall?

Porch railing not to code.

House colors not approved by homeowner’s association.

Balloon airlift device and no navigation lights violate FAA flight rules.

Since when did FreeRepublic start to be a place for class warfare that when someone buys something with their own money that a Freeper doesn’t like, they have to explain where the money come from?

Since they started occupy. Does the fact that someone may be a trust fund baby bother you, I respect people that earn it. Those that just spend it have earned nothing.

FreeRepublic is like a woman. It has moods. It doesn't always make sense.

I wonder if they used the same ‘interesting’ floor joist pattern as in the movie’s house.

These people better hire full time security. They are going to live in hell unless they can control access to the place.

...Best movie ever made. Ever....

When I bought my first HDTV and Blu-Ray player that was the first movie I watched.

I was blown away.

My buddy and I took three of his grandkids to see it. Everything was fine until the kids pointed at the old man on the screen and said out loud to me, “That’s YOU, Roccus!!”

Other adults in the theater thought that was much funnier than I did...hrumph!

Love, love that movie. One of my all time favorite movie. Watched it on New Year’s Eve on dvd with a friend on my computer nearly two years ago.

Well now that my UConn football team is done for the season, and I do extend best wishes to your WVU football team in the bowl selection process, other than for the college b-ball teams, will be enjoying some good movies. :)

Those that just spend it have earned nothing.

First of all, we don't know anything about these people who bought the house. Second, as long as it's not my money--directly or indirectly through tax--and they don't appear from criminal activities, I don't really care much. I thought that's modern conservatism is?

Even more surprising was the $400,000 price tag, which was less than homes they looked at in California.

What's even more surprising is the median home sale price is $255k in Harriman, UT. The new home owners couldn't have gone down to the Home Depot and bought up all the mix matched on sale paints and painted house half the price of this one? Oh, they were from CA.
