Barbie® Lists Malibu Dreamhouse®
LOCATION: Malibu, CA
SIZE: 8,500-plus square feet, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: A little birdie chirped to Your Mama earlier this week that Barbie®, the world's most famous and anatomically impossible doll, has put her internationally renowned Malibu Dreamhouse® on the market exclusively through Trulia with a dolltastic $25,000,000 price tag. That's right, children, Barbie® is selling up in The Bu.
Naturally, Barbie® chose an equally polished, tan and successful Realtor to help her unload her big, pink beach house Dreamhouse®: The dapper Million Dollar Listing star Josh Altman of the real estate brokerage powerhouse Hilton & Hyland.
Marketing materials Your Mama received via covert communique from the hardworking assistant to a superstar PR diva with whom we're friendly indicates Barbie's® Malibu bachelorette pad sits on an unusually roomy for Malibu 23,456 square foot lot with 150 feet of prime beach frontage. The towering, tri-level residence—generously described as "Contemporary Glam" in listing details—measures in at more than 8,500 square feet but includes just one bedroom and one bathroom. Guess that means when Skipper, Todd or Tutti come to town they have to curl up on the love seat or shack up in a motel.
Listing information reveals Barbie's® lone bathroom, located just off and open to the second floor sitting room, has a single pedestal sink, radiant heat flooring and a stand-up corner steam shower with a glass door that, like the elevator, is imprinted with Barbie's® pony tailed profile.
We're not really sure what sort of—ahem—doll might want to buy Barbie's® beach side Dreamhouse® but Your Mama thinks Mister Altman may want to reach out to some of those goulish and increasingly popular Monster High dolls like, say, Cleo de Nile™ or Venus McFlyTrap™who would surely Goth the place up with cobwebs, crucifixes and scads of candelabras.
Your Mama doesn't have any specific intel on Barbie's® future real estate plans in Malibu but could she finally be fixin' to trade up into the glassy, gorgeous and über contemporary, five-level spread that won the 2011 AIA Barbie® Dreamhouse® Design Competition? Let's hope so.
