Harrison Ford’s Childhood Home Is Listed for $400K
Before fame came knocking on Harrison Ford’s front door, this brick Tudor dating back to 1922 was where the future actor spent much of his upbringing. And now, diehard fans can rejoice: the home is up for sale and totally not out of budget.
Located at 109 N Washington Ave in Park Ridge, Illinois—about 17 miles from Chicago—this property is currently on the market for $400,000. Ford lived here with his family during the 1950s, where he occupied the bedroom with the balcony (dibs!) while his brother Terence Ford got the smallest room, according to Architectural Digest.

After graduating high school, Ford moved away to attend Ripon College in Wisconsin and eventually made his way to Los Angeles, according to Realtor.com. The historic house has had two owners since the Fords occupied the space, and it’s the first time that the property has been on the market since 1970s.
The 2,132-square-foot house has three bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths, complete with high ceilings and spacious rooms. However, the listing states that they “encourage a near complete remodel.” The electricity, plumbing, and windows all date back to when the house was first built, making them all 96 years old and most likely in desperate need of revival.
But with the house being on the market for $400,000 in a neighborhood where homes go for $700,000 or more, it could be a good investment for someone down to tackle a fixer-upper.
And the fact that Harrison Ford once walked these walls definitely adds some priceless value.
