The house from 'Pulp Fiction' is up for sale
Cinephiles should keep their ears open. Another slice of the film history is up for sale now. The Los Angeles house used for an iconic scene in '90s Oscar-nominated cult classic Pulp Fiction can be yours for exact $1.395 million.
In the film it was Jimmie’s house, a character played by Tarantino himself. John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson, aka Vincent and Jules, asked Jimmie for his help, discussing over a cup of coffee what to do with a dead guy in the car. This is the scene where Travolta and Jackson's characters went to hide out after a messy hit left them and their car covered in blood, and it's unforgettable.
Let alone the fact, it could have won the Guinness record as a scene with the most frequently repeated N-word. Tarantino drops it an inconceivable amount of times.
The three-bed, two-bath, 1,700 square foot property is located in Colfax Meadows, one of the top 10 neighborhoods in all of L.A. Jack Mullen, a press agent for countless Hollywood stars including Dyan Cannon, Peter Graves, Anthony Quinn, Julie Andrews, Steve McQueen, and Jock Mahoney, lived here too.
If the connection with Pulp Fiction and Hollywood history is not enough to convince the buyer of the profitability of investments, there’s another advantage from the investor’s point of view. Kevin Dees, a Los Angeles real estate agent and a former owner of the house, mentioned that Netflix rented the house out a while back as a workspace for its writers.
Major Hollywood studios, including Universal Studios, CBS Television City and Warner Brothers, are just round the corner.
There will always be tenant demand for the home with the ever-changing cast of actors, producers, and writers working for the nearby studios. So the purchase can pay off if we consider real estate as a source of income.
After all, you can take advantage of the Pulp Fiction connection and rent out the home on Airbnb as Dees and his wife did.
4145 Kraft Avenue, Studio City, CA 91604, this is the address, which still attracts fans, and they don’t miss an opportunity to take a selfie in front of the cult object.
The house, originally built in 1936, is just moments from the famed Tujunga Village shops and restaurants.
While the house retains many of the features immortalised in film, like built-in cupboards or the kitchen tiles, retro wallpaper has been unfortunately replaced by a fresh coat of white paint. The appliances, including dishwasher, dryer, freezer, refrigerator, and washer look brand new but the benches are in the same place, as is the scallop-edged hood over the stove.
The house has hardwood floors, a huge living room that fits a giant couch, spacious bedrooms with plenty of natural light and a TV fitted to the wall, and a huge backyard and well-maintained front garden.
The 4,200-square-foot block included a garage and patio. The listing states that the home boasts an “amazing development opportunity with plans and permits fully approved and paid for”.
The perspectives are promising. So if you do not believe in mystical coincidences, a bad aura and are not afraid to repeat the fate of a fictional character (and of course have about 1.4 million on the account), the purchase is worth it.
You don’t know what to do if two bloodied hitmen barge in for breakfast? Well, then call Harvey Keitel.
