A St. Paul home that played a big role in a pair of Minnesota-based movies is now on the market.

The house at 1122 Hyacinth Ave E in the Phalen Heights neighborhood was used in the filming of 1993's "Grumpy Old Men" and its 1995 sequel "Grumpier Old Men."


Both films starred Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau and Ann-Margret.

According to its listing, the 1,456-square-foot home was built in 1918 and features three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The asking price is listed at $249,900.

Real estate agent Jesse Godzala of Edina Realty said multiple offers had already been received, and he expected one might be accepted as soon as Tuesday.

He said the house served as the home of Ann-Margret's character, but was used for other exterior shots as well, and its interior served as the model for the interiors of other homes portrayed in the films.

"The current owners bought it around the end of World War II," he said. "They raised their family there. It's only had a couple of owners over the course of 100 years."
