Actor Gary Coleman has bought a home in a Denver subdivision with a view of the Front Range Mountains.

Coleman, 20, star of the now-defunct "Diff'rent Strokes," is moving from Chicago into the $470,000 home in Highlands Ranch, publicist Skip Heinecke said Friday.

"He doesn't ski," Heinecke said. "But he likes to drive off-road" and owns a couple of Jeeps. Coleman also likes to ride horses, he added.

"It's far enough out of town, but it is close enough to jump in for a meeting" in Los Angeles, Heinecke said.

Coleman is working on a television plot called "Small Claims," a sort of "People's Court" for kids, the publicist said.
