In recent weeks, we've had several entries on the Fort Wayne, Ind., house where Carole Lombard was born Jane Alice Peters on Oct. 6, 1908 -- three years after it was built by her grandfather -- and where she spent the first six years of her life before she, her two brothers and her mother moved to Los Angeles. We've mentioned that the house is now a bed and breakfast, and that its owners have put it up for sale. Now they have put forth the particulars on their Web site, if you're interested, at http://www.carolelombardhouse.com/House-Sale/Main.htm
The house has six-plus bedrooms, as well as six full and two half baths. The house is 3,950 square feet, plus a 1,500 square foot basement. The above link also leads to pictures of each of the six bedrooms, as well as two photos of the living room
along with one of the breakfast area with a picturesque view of the St. Mary's River:
The house, a local historic landmark, has been meticulously maintained, and as a bed and breakfast has hosted people from all over the world. The price to purchase this property? $249,950. The memories it holds, as well as a spirit who probably makes her joyous presence known when she drops in from Hollywood? As they say in the commercial, priceless.
