Before she was one of “Charlie’s Angels,” blond beauty Farrah Fawcett was the daughter of an oil man in Corpus Christi, TX, where some of her hometown friends dubbed her “Drippy” just to have something catchy to go along with her evocative last name.
But a funky nickname could not detract from Fawcett’s obvious beauty and star power.
Now, three years after Fawcett died of cancer at age 62, her childhood home in southern Texas has hit the Corpus Christi real estate market for $215,000. Not a bad deal, considering that any prospective buyer would get the chance to live in the home of one of Corpus Christi’s beloved citizens and one of Hollywood’s most enduring symbols of sex appeal.
The 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom ranch has been given a nice facelift: New paint, tile, carpeting, lighting and bathroom fixtures throughout. It also boasts an updated kitchen and fresh landscaping and new driveway.
For Fawcett, there were plenty of bigger and more luxurious accommodations after her Texas childhood. In 2011, Fawcett’s 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo unit at The Wilshire in the Westwood real estate market of Los Angeles sold. Her former Bel-Air home on 3130 Antelo Place was also a California classic.
And then there was the fabulous Malibu beachfront house at 28124 Pacific Coast Highway shown in the YouTube video below, where scenes for “Charlie’s Angels” were filmed. Fawcett spent one full season on Charlie’s Angels before moving on to new acting roles and a new partner, Ryan O’Neal, whose Malibu house she moved to after leaving husband Lee Majors.
