Ford’s childhood home is now on the market for the first time since 1970, listed for $399,900 with Craig Tinder of Century 21 Elm. The current owners are the second family to own the home since the Fords sold it.
Ford lived in the home during the 1950s, graduating from Maine East High School in Park Ridge, IL, before attending Ripon College in Wisconsin. He acted with a summer theater group near the resort town of Lake Geneva, WI, and then moved to Los Angeles.
Ford also had another future-celeb neighbor: Hillary Rodham Clinton, who “grew up two blocks away” during the ’50s and ’60s, according to Tinder.
While this charming Tudor is listed for just under $400,000, Tinder told us recent comps in the neighborhood are in the $700,000 range.
“The yard is a bit of a jungle,” according to the agent, so the next occupants may want to invest in landscaping as well.
Hardwood floors under the carpeting could also give the house a new lease on life. Other projects might include finishing the 850-square-foot basement and modernizing the baths and kitchen (look at those vintage cabinets!).
“Back when Harrison Ford lived there, it was very sleepy, suburban, a dry town,” says Tinder. “Most of the people who are moving to Park Ridge now are coming from Chicago and still want to be close to the downtown area—both Chicago and Park Ridge’s Uptown area.”
Even so, it remains a family-friendly community just as it was when Ford lived here.
There are three bedrooms in the home. Ford’s parents took the master bedroom while he took the larger of the remaining two bedrooms, and his younger brother (Terence Ford, also an actor, with roles on “The Young and the Restless” and “Knots Landing”) got the smaller. Harrison’s former room also boasts a balcony.parties from around the web; as such, the operators of this website assume no liability or responsibility for any of the contents contained herein, or the contents of websites that we may link to.
