By Cox Media Group National Content Desk

"Um, I met somebody in Rome. Uh, he's an American -- He's from LA, actually! And his name's Brian McKenzie, and he's just this wonderful, wonderful, amazing man. And well, we started seeing each other -- a lot. And we fell in love."

The scene in which Annie Banks (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) tells her father, George, (Steve Martin) that she's getting married in "Father of the Bride" is nothing short of iconic. 

And the house featured in the 1991 film just sold -- and at a steep price.

The four bedroom, four-bathroom house, located in Alhambra, California, hit the market in June with a $1,998,000 price tag.

That's approximately $454 per square foot -- and there's 4,397 square feet total. It sits on a 18,110-square-foot lot.

"I’ve been really fortunate to work in an area with a lot of movie and TV locations," said Listing Agent Ann Gluck," "But I have to say this is one of my all time favorites."  

The home, listed by Compass, is a 1925 Colonial that was used for the wedding and basketball scenes in "Father of the Bride." The front of the house did not appear in the movie.

Special features include "a wonderful new gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances including a 90 bottle wine fridge and French doors overlooking the expansive yard," according to the listing.

There's also a grand entry, formal living and dining rooms, a walnut-paneled den and a sun room with a Batchelder fountain. A separate 600-square-foot room has its own full bathroom.

Gluck says the "icing on the cake" is that the basketball goal at the house is the same one that's seen in the movie.
