Edith Macefield’s “UP! House” Is pending

The sale of Edith Macefield’s world famous house is now pending.

“Interest in this property has been off the charts” said listing broker Paul Thomas. “Nearly 750,000 people viewed the virtual tour and stories about the sale have appeared in numerous local, national and global media outlets. People around the world really identify with Edith Macefield and what she stood for.”

Many people have also visited the property in person and left messages on the balloon wall. “I put over 800 balloons in the balloon dispenser in a three week period and I know others have been refilling it as well,” said Thomas.

Thomas received 38 “solid” offers for the house during the three week listing period. Each offer was scored for its proposed memorial to Edith Macefield, terms and dollar amount. The party who submitted the best overall offer has signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement and has until late May to complete their due diligence.

Once the sale closes, a much more substantive press release will be issued which will detail the buyer’s plans for the property. “If the current buyer closes,” said Thomas, “it will be an incredible next chapter in this David vs. Goliath story.”

A virtual tour of the inside and outside of the house including drone footage can be seen at For liability reasons, the house regretfully remains closed to the public.
