Abraham dwelled in a house in Ur before he was called by God to leave (Gen 12) and dwelled in Beersheba after his journey (Gen 22:19).

But in His heart he always longed for that heavenly city whose architect and builder is God (Heb 11:10), so I guess you could say he never truly stayed or belong to anywhere until eternity comes :)
