The house - located in a residential section of Pasadena, near San Marino (where the movie takes place). A very traditional colonial style home, complete with a white picket fence, wasn't always this way. According to rumors, when filming began - the house wasn't in such great shape. Filmmakers came in, repainted the exterior, added new landscaping (even the picket fence) and remodeled the interior prior to filming. The house is everything you would expect it to be for the "Banks" family.
Remember Annie at the top of the staircase seeing her dad for the first time in a while? Sliding down the banister to a hug? This house really seemed like home to her.
The kitchen, while a bit cluttered nowadays seemed like anyone else's kitchen. Well, except for a bit bigger.
Annie's windows in her bedroom. Only what I wish for!
And the favorite basketball scene...did you know that this was not actually shot at the house, but in Alhambra,CA??
And finally the reason we all fell in love with the movie...the wedding!!! A wedding at home on January 6th!
And the house how it looks today at 853 S. El Molino in Pasadena...
