The Edith Macefield House in Seattle didn’t actually inspire the Pixar movie “Up,” but its story fit the movie’s narrative so well that Disney used it to promote the film by tying balloons to the roof.

Now, the holdout home to top all holdout homes has hit the market.

Edith Macefield was offered $1 million to sell her beloved century-old house to developers. But she shot them down, making her a sort of folk hero. She passed away in 2008, and now the home is up for grabs, according to Curbed.

Following an auction that yielded no offers, the 1,550-square-foot house is now listed by local real estate agent Paul Thomas without an asking price. But it has the potential to be used as a house, office, museum or as an addition to the Ballard Blocks retail complex surrounding it.
