Famous People from Takoma Park - Goldie Hawn's Childhood Home

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc MD 82788 DC SP97220

Goldie Hawn Childhood Home - Takoma Park MDGoldie Hawn the famous actress and comedian grew up in this quaint and charming circa 1927 Brick Duplex in the Historic District of Takoma Park, Md 20912. 

The Hawn Family lived in the Left Side of this duplex.  Goldie's small wedding to John Hudson in the 1970's was in the backyard of this home. 

Goldies father Edward Hawn, a musician, died in 1982 and Goldie's mother Laura lived in this home up until 1984, when she sold the house and moved to California, where she died in 1994. 

Goldie graduated from the old 
Blair High School in Silver Spring, Md in 1963 and attended American University in Washington DC. Although she grew up in Takoma Park, her "stomping ground" was Downtown Silver Spring in it's heyday.  She speaks of her fond memories in the Documentary Film "Silver Spring, Story of an American Suburb"

The house has 3 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, a Basement and 2 Fireplaces. It is within a few blocks of the Takoma Metro Station.  The last sale of this house was in May of 2010 - the sales price was $581,250
 The real estate listing description of the house when it was on the market in 2010 . . . . . 

Elegant urban living on quiet cul-de-sac steps to Metro.  Gracious 1920's light-filled home has comfortable LR w/ wonderful windows and FP.  DR is open to both chic designer kitchen and beamed ceilinged family room w/ stone FP open to great deck, hot tub and lushly landscaped yard. If you're lucky maybe stardom will strike you too - this was Goldie Hawn's childhood home!"

Amazing how time flies.. Goldie Hawn is someone I grew up watching on the big screen.. but never knew much about her.. I actually lived in Silver Springs for a while.. and never heard about her being from there..

I love Goldie Hawn.  That movie with the football team was my favorite with her.  Cool looking house too.  Thanks for sharing.
