Harrison Ford Lists Long-time L.A. Estate

SELLER: Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA (Brentwood)
PRICE: $8,295,000
SIZE: 7,164 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: In the wee hours of this morning Your Mama received a covert communique from Our Fairy Godmother in Brentwood who let us know Academy Award-nominated actor Harrison Ford (Star Wars, Raiders of the Los Ark) listed his private, pristine and meticulously maintained Los Angeles, CA residence on the open market with an asking price of $8,295,000.

This isn't really such a surprise to all us celebrity real estate watchers and gossips who recall last September (2011) thrice-married Mister Ford and his long-time lady-mate and wife Calista Flockhart dropped a hefty $12,650,000 on a brand new and quite large 13,767 square foot mansion in the pricey and pastoral Mandeville Canyon area of Los Angeles.

Property records show Mister Ford acquired the newly listed Gerard Colcord-designed Country Colonial crib in June 1983 for $1,000,000. Listing information shows the main mansion, set high above the street just below The Getty Museum, was originally built in 1951 and encompasses 7,164 square feet with 4 bedrooms suites. There's an additional poolside guesthouse (with 1 bedroom) plus two additional detached guest/staff suites. There are a total of 8 bathrooms on the property according to listing information.

Current online listings don't include interior photographs but does describe them as "perfectly proportioned" with polished wood floors, extensive built ins, paneled walls and beautiful moldings. Interior spaces include a very large (formal) living room, wood-paneled (formal) dining room, cozy library, eat-in country-style kitchen and family room. Additional rooms and amenities, as per listing information kindly provided by Our Fairy Godmother in Brentwood, include an office, wine cellar, (detached) work shop, and 4 (original) fireplaces.

The gated, (approximately) three-quarter acre estate has a long gated drive that climbs to a large circular drive and two-car (attached) garage, terraced gardens, brick terraces, tree-ringed flat lawns dappled with shade, and an upper-level balconies with over-the roof- and tree-top city views.

Mister Ford (and by extension Miz Flockhart) also maintain homes in Jackson, Wyoming and New York City where he/they had a prairie-like penthouse pad on the market at the appropriately-dubbed City Prairie building in the Flatiron District from late 2010 until September 2011 for $16,000,000.

Looks like a great estate. Would love to see interior pics.

Wonder what's going on here with all of the property listings? Downsizing I hope which people Mr. Harrison's age tend to do.

He has a good thing with Mrs. Flockhart, so I hope there's no upcoming divorce.

Le Belvedere is back on the market because it never sold in the first place. There was no $50 million deal, it was re-po'ed by the lender.

Had to interject that in there. This place looks nice. Love the leafy Brentwood 'hood.

I looked at the interior shots. I sincerely hope that was staged since it has all the personality of catalog furniture...and accessories.

So, how do you know this for a fact? Are you riding up and down on it with a video cam?
