COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho — The home of Patty Duke, who won an Oscar as a teen for “The Miracle Worker” and who passed away earlier this year, is for sale in northern Idaho.
The Coeur d’Alene Press (http://bit.ly/2ctLL5x ) reports that Duke’s husband, Mike Pearce, has put the nearly 3,000-square-foot home on the market for $398,000.
Duke, born Anna Marie Pearce, followed on her early success playing the young Helen Keller with a popular sitcom, “The Patty Duke Show,” which aired in the mid-1960s. She played dual roles under an unconventional premise: identical cousins living in Brooklyn Heights, New York.
She lived with her family on an 80-acre Idaho ranch until 2003, and then she moved to Coeur d’Alene to the five-bedroom home.
