Harrison Ford, the actor beloved to many as playing both Han Solo and Indiana Jones, has slipped his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles onto the market for $8.295 million. Ford has owned this Colonial style home for a long time, picking it up way back in 1983 for around $1 million. He later owned it with his second wife Melissa Mathison.
The early 1950s New England Traditional home was designed by architect Gerard Colcord and occupies a peaceful lot on .79 acres set off from the street with a gate and a long drive leading up to the home. The grounds feature rolling green lawns, gardens, a pool and city views stretching all the way to the ocean.
The four-bedroom main house and three detached guest suites offer seven bedrooms with a total of 7,164 square feet. Listing details state the current owner has restored and remodeled the home while respecting the original architecture and pictures reveal a well-decorated home with a casual elegance. Interior details include polished wood floors, paneled walls, crown moldings, and many built-ins; fitting considering that Ford got his start as a carpenter. The home also has a library, large living room, country kitchen, and a wood-paneled dining room with a walk-in fireplace and secret bar.
As the Real Estalker points out, Ford and his wife, actress Calista Flockhart spent a reported $12.65 million on a new 13,767 square foot mansion in the Mandeville Canyon area. According to Curbed NY, Ford listed his New York City penthouse in 2010 for $16 million.
