Neighbours outraged as couple unveil 'Up' house

There goes the neighbourhood! A couple in Santa Clara, California, have outraged the other people in their street - by renovating their posh Victorian property to resemble the gaudy home in the animated movie 'Up'.

Never mind that the homes in the highly-prized street are more than 100 years old. Hosam Haggog and his girlfriend Fatima Rahman just wanted something his daughters would love.

'My girls 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 neighbourhood really love the colours,' explains Haggog.

But several adults in the neighbourhood are not in favour of the bright colors.

'I just don't think it fits in,' complains neighbour Lou Faria.

'It really, in my opinion, is atrocious that this Victorian house is a gracious old lady and it's being painted up to look like a clown.'
