Following a public battle the house on which the animated floating abode in Disney film Up was modelled has been saved from demolition.
Edith Macefield, the former owner of the Seattle property, famously refused so sell the house to a property developer for more than US $1 million.
After her death in 2008 the house was due to be demolished.
Developers had built right up to the property line of the house, surrounding the property in commercial development.
But it was the house Ms Macefield had lived in for more than 60 years and her publicised bid to protect the home had created a long-standing effect on Ballard neighbourhood residents.
A Facebook page, Edith Macefield House, was created in an attempt to protect the iconic property.
In a press release posted to the page, listing broker Paul Thomas said it had "become apparent that the age and condition of the house make it cost-prohibitive for anyone to use the house in its current location".
In an announcement released today Mr Thomas said the house would be donated and relocated, saved from demolition.
The house would be restored and made available for a family in need.
