BELUSHI BROTHERS CHILDHOOD HOME
This is the Belushi Brothers childhood home for sale. John and Jim Belushi grew up in this house that is in my hometown, Wheaton, Illinois.
The house today is renovated and not the original home the Belushi boys grew up in. It used to be a ranch. Now it has a 2nd floor and brick exterior. If you look at the original home (below) compared to the renovated home for sale you can still see the original ranch part of the house.
Wheaton Illinois is one of the best towns to live in today. It was even a better town back in the 60s and 70s when the Belushi boys grew up here.
THE BELUSHI BROTHERS’ CHILDHOOD HOME BEFORE
I grew up in Wheaton and remember Jim Belushi who was in my Wheaton Central High School (WCHS) graduating class. His girlfriend in high school was one of the nicest and prettiest girls in our class. He made it to one of our class reunions and although I did not attend that reunion, my close friends said he was very friendly with everyone and he performed for the crowd as well.
THE LISTING SAYS:
Magazine picture home! Charm-personality-comfort!
Original hardwood floors and a cozy fireplace.
“A completely modernized kitchen. Stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and maple cherry cabinets.”
I remember their Mom worked at the Drugstore, G & G Pharmacy, just up the street from their home. I have a lot of memories of this drugstore. One is that on Sunday after church, we would stop there to get the newspaper and glazed donuts.
BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS
A much desired 2nd-floor laundry room.
Now this famous renovated Belushi Brothers childhood home is a four-bedroom, three full bath home. Coldwell Banker has the listing for $395,000.
That was then, this is now:
