The Skinny: One of the houses used in the 2008 naughty-dog flick Marley & Me has just hit the market in the Pennsylvania countryside. Located 40 minutes outside of Philadelphia—and even closer to Wilmington, Del.—the stone manor house was built circa 1830 and, after a few additions over the years, features five bedrooms, an updated kitchen, and a renovated master bath with Carrara marble and a claw-foot tub. The 15.8 acres of fenced land are perfect for a rambunctious pup or, thanks to the spacious, six-stall red barn on the property, any number of larger animals. Have the sellers waited a little too long to cash in on the Hollywood cachet of a 2008 Christmas tearjerker? We'll just have to wait and see: it's only been on the market for 12 days.
