NJ childhood home where Buzz Aldrin perfected his moonwalk is for sale
You’ll be over the moon for this house.
Long before Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon, the legendary Apollo 11 astronaut would stroll along the roof of his boyhood home in tony Montclair, NJ., gazing at the sky.
Now the 7-bedroom, 4-bathroom house where Aldrin perfected his moonwalk can be yours for just over a cool $1 million, according to the listing on Zillow.
During an October 2015 visit to his childhood digs, Aldrin tweeted, “I’d climb out the 3rd floor and walk along the roof with a candle. Was I crazy?”
“You flew to the moon in a glorified baked bean tin with a rocket strapped to it. You’re crazy enough,” Twitter user @mattmaloney replied.
Peter Kelly, 66, who is selling the house on behalf of the estate of his late parents, Dolores and John, told The Post he believes Aldrin lived in the house from his 1930 birth to 1947. The Kelly family — which included 11 kids — owned “the warm, inviting home” since June, 1966. His dad predeceased his 90-year-old mom, who died in February.
“It’s a big house, but it doesn’t feel big,” he said.
