LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Harrison Ford is selling one Brentwood celebrity mansion and buying another. Harrison Ford first made news buying into Brentwood, California in 1981. Now the residence he has called home for three decades is up on the market, while Ford and wife Calista Flockhart have bought another residence, also in Brentwood, local news indicates.
Eagle Tribune reports that, two years after the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Ford bought a Gerard Colcord-designed, country Colonial in the east corridor of Brentwood. That home, near the Getty Museum, was bought for one million. Now after nearly thirty years of owning the residence, Ford is listing it for $8.3 million, reports the Eagle Tribune. The newspaper reports “The 7,164-square-foot house was originally built in 1951 and has 4 bedroom suites with an additional poolside, one-bedroom guesthouse plus two additional detached guest/staff suites”.
Now Ford is moving to Mandeville Canyon, reports the Real Estalker, having bought with Flockart a new mansion at nearly thirteen million dollars. The celebrity mansion news website reports that Ford aptly got a good deal, paying “almost twenty percent less than the […2010 listing price] and just about ten percent less than the last known asking price”.
The site reports news that the home boasts “7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and 6 fireplaces plus a detached backyard cottage outfitted with screening room and guest/staff suite.”
But not everyone is convinced by the purchase. HookedonHouses.net said of the new construction house “I’m surprised that a house with such a hefty price tag has such a prominent garage [in the front] (assuming this is the front of the house).”
