The nearly 7,500-square-foot house, built in 1925, stood in for the home of Harrison Ford's character, acting CIA Deputy Director Jack Ryan, in Washington's Georgetown neighborhood.
In another scene, Ford is preparing to leave town and was filmed packing the homeowners' actual clothes. The suitcase ended up in a prop truck, and the owners later had to retrieve their belongings from the prop department, according to listing agent Lisa Hutchins of Coldwell Banker's Hancock Park North office.
Filming took place over 10 days. Ford reportedly loved the house and offered to buy it. The owners, who purchased the property in the 1980s, weren't ready to part with it then.
Moving out of his twilight zone
Writer-producer-director Pen Densham has sold his house in the Windsor Square area of Los Angeles for $2.75 million.
The English Manor-style home, built in 1906, was moved to its current location from Wilshire Boulevard and Vermont Avenue by the Bullock family — think department store — earning it the name Bullock House. An oversized entry with beamed ceilings leads to the living room, library, formal dining room and carved-wood staircase. There are eight bedrooms, 71/2 bathrooms and a basement.
The more than half-acre site includes a guesthouse and a swimming pool.
Densham's writing credits include the TV revivals of "The Outer Limits" (1995-2001) and "The Twilight Zone" (2002). He wrote and produced "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" (1991) and "Moll Flanders" (1996), which he also directed.
Public records show he bought the property in 1994 for $885,000.
Lisa Hutchins of Coldwell Banker's Hancock Park North office was the listing agent. Max Nelson of Deasy/Penner & Partners represented the buyer.
