The “Father of the Bride” home, with its original basketball court, has sold for $1.998 million.
Although the gorgeous house has new, happy owners who “loved the media coverage” of its Hollywood fame, it doesn’t sound like there will be any brides planning to wear sneakers down the aisle or swans wandering around the yard there anytime soon.
The buyers are a big family, comprised of “older parents and grown children” with “no daughters as far as I know,” the listing agent, Ann Gluck of COMPASS, told ABC News.

The home still possesses all of its curbside appeal, which attracted filmmakers to shoot there.
“The house is gorgeous, great character home, great family home,” Gluck said in June when the home was first listed. “To have all of that and a starring role in such a well-loved film is icing on the cake!”
And even though it looks strikingly similar, this is the home the film used to shoot the backyard basketball and outdoor wedding scenes, rather than the home used for the frontal scenes of the house, which is located in nearby Pasadena, California. Apparently, that house didn’t have a large enough yard for the tender father-daughter hoops games that Steve Martin and Kimberly Williams-Paisley’s characters share in the film.
Located in Alhambra, California, the gorgeous 4,397-square-foot colonial-style home boasts four bedrooms and four bathrooms, in addition to a sprawling sunroom on the second floor, a gourmet kitchen and a three-car garage.
“I’ve been really fortunate to work in an area with a lot of movie and TV locations, but I have to say this is one of my all-time favorites,” Gluck said.
As for the most frequently asked question she got while showing the property?
“Is that the same basketball goal from the movie?” she said.
Yes, it is, indeed.
