'Up' House: Neighbors Dislike Painted Victorian Resembling Pixar Movie

A California couple that painted their house to resemble the Pixar movie "Up" is now facing criticism from neighbors who say the multicolored Victorian "looks like a clown."

Hosam Haggog and Fatima Rahman, of Santa Clara, California, spent two years renovating their Victorian home to resemble the one in the 2009 family favorite "Up." Their house sits on Harrison Street, part of the area's historical neighborhood that features homes more than 100 years old.

"[Our daughters] love the movie 'Up' and we just thought we'd give them something fun to be proud of and actually all the kids in the neighborhood really love the colors," Haggog told NBC Bay Area.



But neighbors aren't too pleased about the "Up" house.

"I don't think it fits in. It really, in my opinion, is atrocious that this Victorian is a gracious old lady and it's being painted up to look like a clown," neighbor Lou Faria told NBC.

"I like historical houses to be historical," neighbor Chuck Petersen added. "On the other hand, it's his home and I feel that sometime down the line it's going to be repainted again anyway."

The couple insists they had no intention to ruin the reputation of the neighborhood.

"We're not trying to create controversy," Rahman said. "We're trying to build a home for our daughters and our family. And that's what our intention was."
