The aunt's house is every bit a main character in the movie.... "I analyzed the descriptions of the stairways and the tangle of vines growing over the back door, and decided it had to be Victorian,"she (Robin Standefer) explains. "But it couldn't look haunted.It had to be clean and white, not fading and cobwebbed. The aunts never really age. Their magic keeps them young. What if they lived in a house that never really aged? The design, based on East Coast shingle style, evolved to include a lighthouse on top. "Women were traditionally light keepers and this was a house of women," says Robin.
