Heaven help us. The fictional home of the Eatenton family from the 1989 film Steel Magnolias is up for auction on October 26 in Natchitoches, Louisiana. I’m sure M’Lynn would need more than a glass of the “house wine of the South” to let go of her family home, but for an estimated price close to $949,000, Drum could buy that duck camp he always wanted.
The two-story historic colonial was built in 1840. The 5,900-square feet home has six bedrooms, six baths, and comes fully furnished. And if that wasn’t enough space to host Shelby’s dream “blush and bashful” wedding, there’s also a 800-square feet guest house and pool.
Did we mention there’s a pink bedroom? But bless your heart if you dare paint it.
(We know it’s not polite to talk about money) but how much would you bid for the Steel Magnolia home? What would you do with the house?
