Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart bought a new house last September in the Mandeville Canyon section of Los Angeles.

Eighteen months after buying a $12.65 million mansion with his third wife Calista Flockhart, "Raiders of the Lost Ark" star Harrison Ford has listed his pristine country Colonial home he's owned for almost 30 years on the Brentwood real estate market in LA for $8,295,000.

According to The Real Estalker, Ford acquired the Gerard Colcord-designed, country Colonial home in June 1983 for $1,000,000, which places the purchase date about six years after the 1977 release of "Star Wars," for which Ford was nominated for an Academy Award, and about two years after "Raiders ...." 1981 release.

Guess it's finally time to move on, although given the meticulous remodel that appears to have spared little cost and given tremendous attention to detail, Ford's home has been a master work in progress with polished wood floors, moldings and many built-ins.

The main house is set high above the street just below fabulous The Getty Museum. 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.
