By John Dodge
CHICAGO (CBS) — For a little more than $3.5 million, a lucky home buyer could have a nice Lincoln Park home along with some movie trivia to share with guests.
The home where the murder scene for the movie “The Fugitive” was filmed has hit the market. The asking price is $3,650,000 for the five bedroom home on West Wisconsin Street.
In the 1993 movie, Dr’ Richard Kimble’s wife, Helen, (Sela Ward) is brutally murdered in the home and the good doctor is railroaded and wrongfully convicted and sentenced to die for the crime.
Dr. Kimble, played by Harrison Ford, escapes after his prison transport vehicle crashes, and he spends the rest of the movie on the run and trying to prove his innocence. The movie includes scenes from all over Chicago, including an appearance by Ford in the St. Patrick’s Day parade.
As for the contemporary four-story home, it was also on the market in 2011 and was listed again about two weeks ago.
The home has more than 6,000 square feet and includes 4.5 bathrooms, three master bedroom suites with fireplaces, and an indoor pool.
