Tasteful friends: Pam Grier's Colorado home is on the market

A real estate Mary friend in Denver sent this link. He's been in the home .He says its very nice and its on a beautiful and very peaceful 5 acre lot. That's her stuff, too. Not staged.

Thoughts?

I'd guess Pam's fortunes aren't what they were, perhaps.

Franktown’s in the middle of nowhere.

Well r1, she's on an ABC series Bless This Mess. I would assume she's not making chump change. I wonder where my Queen is moving to. I love me some Pam Grier!

by Anonymousreply 305/19/2020

I'd furnish it differently, but it's fine. Scenery is nice.

It's so typical mass-build suburban in nearly every aspect, but, again, it's nice enough. It's just not special or unique in any way.

by Anonymousreply 405/19/2020

Not my style of house or setting but nice all the same. Comfortable, well presented, personal but easy for a potential buyer to imagine the place as their own.

For once I've nothing critical to offer, as if I would for Pam Grier/Jackie Brown.

Maybe keeping up with horses is too much, Pam is 70 now.

I adore Pam Grier but not her house.

by Anonymousreply 905/19/2020

It's interesting there are duplicate dining sets in rooms next to the kitchen.

It's a fine house but not where I'd choose to live. I love mountain settings but I'd go for more rustic than that.

Sometimes to avoid I-25, I will take 83 and drive through Parker and Franktown R2. They are very pretty places, but kind of isolated. In the winter there is no "running down to the store".

Same with on the other side of 1-25 on the 105. People live in these big homes on tons of land. I'd be worried I'd have heart attack or break a leg or something and be SOL.

It's okay. Nice setting. One wonders though how much time she actually spends there. It's inoffensive. Typical decor for someone's rustic Western country cabin.

Excellent interview with Pam Grier in The New Yorker.

She was raised partly in Colorado and talks about her home in the interview. She loved it. I hope she lands in an even better place.

Pam was a stunning beauty back in the day, but it’s a shame how she’s let herself go. My mom, who’s 67 was always told in the ‘70’s how she looked just like Pam. But my mom is thin and fit and takes much better care of herself than Pam.

Love it. It looks great and personalized.

So much different from the banal monstrosities that most celebs live in today.

It's a mish mash of styles, Western, Asian Boho, and Suburban Beige. Not very cohesive and a little dull. I like the back deck with the green siding, purple umbrella, and orange painting. That's the only spot of life.

Why the pity? Most people I know sell houses to move to some better situation.

by Anonymousreply 3905/19/2020

R28 Yeah, the stairs leading to nowhere are weird. Looks like they have some kind of cheap carpeting draped over them too.

The pale wood floors bother me along with the cheap-looking white doors. None of which goes with the deeper brown wood trim. It’s a big confusing mess.

Not quite Denver and too close to Colorado Springs, fundie capitol of the US.

And no one but no one has heard of Bless This Mess, apparently.

It's really sort of nice. I'm not big on the beige-y look everywhere, some of the wood is outdated and I wouldn't want a barn. But most of it is nice enough. I'm sure some Republican pharmaceutical rep or doctor will snap this up in a second.

by Anonymousreply 4705/19/2020

Franktown is probably 3X more conservative than Colorado Springs R46, and that is kind of a high bar.

Small town and all. Parker is the same way.

It's a lovely house for a regular person but I expected something more exotically glamorous from Pam Grier. I know she is a farm girl but it is too plain-jane. Also, $1million seems rather steep for a house in the middle of nowhere attached to a farm.

by Anonymousreply 5305/19/2020

I thought she didn't have kids let alone grandkids. I don't get the room with the children's stuff. Or the guitar and drum set.

by Anonymousreply 5405/19/2020

Love the house! Spacious without being too grand to be comfortable, very livable and attractive, in a lovely area that's close to some really awesome areas. Of course I'd redecorate a bit, I hate the shade of yellow-orange used on half the walls, and a lot of the furniture isn't really to my taste. A little paint, a few new furnishings, burn that hideous purple-and-floral bedspread in the second bedroom, and I'm good!

Pam is seventy, is she? She probably wants a smaller place, closer to necessities, and with mellower winters. And if she's on a TV show, she may want to be closer to her job. The house is lovely, but it's a hell of a lot of work for an (officially) single lady of seventy.

Homes, half that size and on zero acres, on the outskirts of the tiny NC town where I grew up sale for $600.000. What price would you expect for a 4000 sq ft home on 4 acres?

She probably does have family and friends who do have children. Most people do, even if they personally don’t.

Exactly. Her show is doing pretty well (Better than Stumptown, Mixed-ish and even Black-ish) and will more than likely get another season.

I love the outside of the house, and all the windows. That yard needs a lot of work, which is fine. I'll take it. Someone buy it for me. I'm ready to move out of the city.

[R24, ] she "'let herself go"' due to nearly dying of cancer, become infertile afterwards, and being dumped by her younger husband in the process (according to an "Intimate Portrait"-type interview I saw on cable).

It was so cool to discover Ms. Grier in Diane Keaton's latest movie; I hope that t.v show is successful .

by Anonymousreply 70Last Thursday at 2:05 AM

I agree about Jackie Brown. And I loved "Max" in it, the actor who just died. And probably my favorite Bridget Fonda role. She has so few.

by Anonymousreply 71Last Thursday at 4:51 AM

I'm baffled at the people who love this home. It's full of 1970s Native American fetishist kitsch and the building itself looks basic as hell, almost like a small community center where they host meetings and knitting classes.

I think that faux distressed American flag nailed to the outside was bought at Hobby Lobby, for crying out loud. Tacky.

She's got a great role on a popular ABC sitcom so doubt she is truly hurting for money..

by Anonymousreply 74Last Thursday at 7:51 AM

Told this story before. Met her at Chiller the autograph show a few years ago. First night, first in line. I told her that I spent the summer reading 65 celebrity autobiographies and hers was the best. Total truth. She jumped up and gave me a big hug and says that means so much to her. She was genuinely thrilled. So she sits down and says wait, I just digitized all my records at home and she reaches into her bag and pulls out a bunch of 45's. She takes one and signs it to me and just gives it to me. So I have Pam Grier's childhood 45rpm record of Sly & The Family Stone's "Everybody Is A Star".

Now truth, if you want a great read, get her book "Foxy", as soon as I read it, I started it again. Tarantino needs to make a movie of it (which I told her too)
