The famous Pixar Up House in Herriman, Utah was never technically on the market, but the developer decided one couple loved Disney and the movie UP as much as he did, so he sold them the house. The Hamblin’s plan to move in after January 4th when the paperwork closes. In the meantime the home remains open to the public for tours.
The Pixar Up home was built mostly to attract guests to the home builders new division. It did a great job bringing in in the neighborhood of 45,000 visitors to the small town. The town even passed a resolution thanking the home and its builder for all the extra business it generated.
Currently the Hamblin’s plan to petition the HOA for a variance to leave the exterior colors as they are, but will move some of their own furniture into the home, along with their Disneyana and glass collection.
A fitting ending to a fun footnote in Pixar and Disney history, don’t you think.
