Marley And Me House Listed For $1.25 Million
The house used in the hit movie 'Marley and Me' starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson is on the market for $1.25 million, according to the Daily Local newspaper. The 'Marley and Me' house sits on a 16-acre lot and is currently owned by the attorney John Ennis and the fine-arts photographer Lisa Tayor Ennis.
The couple, who are looking to downsize now their three kids have grown-up, say their home is still of interest to passers-by, saying, "People still come by to take pictures. A whole load of kids and parents will jump out of the car and snap photos in front of Marley's house. People are polite and discreet, they don't want to meet us. They just want to see Marley's house". The home, which features five bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, was used in the hit movie about a couple who move to southern Florida to escape the brutal Michigan winters. The film set a record for the largest Christmas Day box office takings ever, with $14.75 million made in ticket sales. Real estate agent DICk Gross says he is taking full advantage of the property's celebrity status, saying, "Selling a house is like selling a piece of artwork. If the art or the house has good provenance - based on who owns or owned it, or what happened there - you do your client a disservice if you don't take advantage of that".
Marley and Me, which has since grossed over $240 million worldwide, was adapted from the best-selling memoir of the same name by JOHN GROGAN.
