Take a closer look at this ‘Lady Bird’ home that’s now for sale
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."
