An upscale home in Sacramento's Fab 40s neighborhood, made popular by its appearance in the opening shot of the film "Lady Bird," hits the market Monday with a listing price of $3.895 million.
The expansive brick house, about 6,500 square feet in size, sits on a more than half-acre property at 45th Street and Folsom Boulevard in East Sacramento. It has six bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, a pool house, library, wine cellar and more.
"It's exciting, we already booked a couple showings this coming week. The news broke, and the phones are ringing," said real estate agent Kim Pacini-Hauch. "We have to thank Greta Gerwig for this. She, with her passion for Sacramento, has given us something to talk about."
Pacini-Hauch declined to name the sellers, but she said the owners have had the house for about 10 years, and decided to relocate to a ranch-style home on a larger lot also in the Sacramento area.

She said the house would make a "wonderful family home," and its backyard is large enough for a wedding.
"It's absolutely the epitome of gracious entertaining and living, with verandas and original wood French doors and beautiful original hardwood floors impeccably refinished," Pacini-Hauch said.
Sparked by the film's popularity, she said she's already scheduled two showings for Monday.
"We're so proud of our city and love it," Pacini-Hauch said, adding that Gerwig "brought to us international recognition. This wonderful little capital is recognizable in the world today because of her movie, so thank you Greta."
