The home featured in the tearjerker "Marley and Me" has hit the market, with the sellers hoping its star power nets them somewhere around $1.25 million.

Lisa Tyson Ennis and her husband John purchased the abandoned property in 1996, telling the Daily Local that the floors were damaged, the kitchen was non-existent, and the front door was falling off its hinges. They spent the next few years performing many of the improvements themselves while camping out in the living room.

The five-bedroom, 3½-bath house on nearly 16 acres was later selected by film scouts looking for a home for "Marley and Me," based on the bestselling memoir by John Grogan. The book and film tell the story of Grogan and his family living with with Marley, "a possibly neurotic, and certified 'untrainable,' yellow Labrador retriever with a heart of gold."

Starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson, "Marley" was a box office success — raking in more than $242 million worldwide and melting hearts everywhere.

"People still come by to take pictures," John Ennis told the newspaper. "A whole load of kids and parents will jump out of the car and snap photos in front of Marley's house. People are polite and discreet; they don't want to meet us. They just want to see Marley's house."

According to the listing, the 180-year-old home includes a six-stall barn, fenced pastures and several barncats to keep watch. Check out a trailer for the film below.
