Utah home inspired by Disney movie 'Up' sold


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah house modeled after the home featured in the animated movie "Up" has been sold to a family who are self-described Disney and Pixar fanatics.

Clinton and Lynette Hamblin of Petaluma, Calif., are buying the home in Herriman, Utah, for $400,000.

The Hamblins say they were searching for a home in California that was similar to the colorful cottage seen in the movie when they heard about the Disney-approved "Up" house in Utah.

Builder Adam Bangerter has said the blueprints for the house were drawn based entirely on details found in the popular movie. Much of the home had to be custom-designed.

The house has a stenciled front lawn mailbox, a vibrant exterior paints and colorful murals inside that make it immediately recognizable to "Up" fans.
