Excuse us for a minute while we dry our eyes, we were just thinking about the movie Up and we started blubbing on the spot.
Right, we've got that out of the way. Now, where were we? Oh yes, the real-life Up house is a thing. And even better news is that you might be able to stay in it.
The house was famously owned by Edith Macefield, who refused £600,000 ($1 million) to relocate her home to make way for a shopping mall in the Ballard neighbourhood in Seattle.
Edith's mother had lived and died in that house, and Edith wanted to do the same. Over the years, the area changed an incredible amount but she stuck to her guns and never budged.
Sadly, in 2008 Edith passed away at the age of 87, but in her will she left her home to construction chief Barry Martin, who had spent a lot of time with her and with whom she formed a bond. Martin had looked after her, cooking her dinners and driving her to the hospital after she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Martin has since sold the property on to an architectural designer, Lois Mackenzie, who has named the building Edith's House at Credo Square.
Since Edith’s death, the construction has been remodeled, with its walls fixed and windows replaced. But there are now plans to rent out the property.
Mackenzie said: "We wanted to keep Edith's house where it was. We decided to clean it up and repair things. Ideally, what we're trying to do is make Edith's house a vacation rental or a nightly rental home."
