BARBRA STREISAND'S MALIBU COMPOUND IS DETERIORATING AT AN ALARMING RATE

Back in the early 90’s, When Barbra Streisand couldn’t sell her compound in Malibu after five years of trying, she donated the 12 million dollar Ramirez Canyon property to the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. Barbra purchased the original house and land in 1974 – through the years she added more land until there was a total of four houses and over 22 acres. When she gave it to the city she got a massive tax write-off and never looked back. The Conservancy was grateful, but needed a LOT of money to maintain the houses and lush grounds that include a stream and several bridges. At first the Conservancy rented out the place for weddings and conducted private tours to pay the upkeep. But neighbors (Britney Spears is two houses away) got riled up and banned tours or wedding parties on their private gated street. Now the four once exquisite houses are falling into ruin – rats, water damage, and neglect. Barbra’s pricey leather outdoor furniture is in tatters. The hand carved wood is warping. The grand piano that Paul Simon gave her is out of tune. Without revenue, the conservancy is just letting the houses fall apart and they don’t know WHAT will be done with the property. It’s a sad, wasteful story.

    First of all, it is dreadfully tacky, but what would you expected from Babs.
    Secondly, I thought she still lived in Malibu? Does she live in another Malibu home, anyone? Thanks.

    Barbra lives in a newer home in Malibu now.

    Maybe they could turn it into a home for wayward gay Barbra Streisand impersonators! I’m sure they’d like digs like that!!

    Maybe it will just ‘mysteriously’ burn in the next Malibu fire.

    Good. I hope the SMCC pays dearly for this. The agency is run by an ahole who goes by Joe Edmiston. He is one of the most powerful unelected scumbags in the state who intimidates other land/home owners in the area and who’s goal is to unfairly tax the hell outta people who live in the SM mountain area.
    He needs to be stopped. It’s no wonder why that liberal kunt Barabra gave the home to the SMCC.
    find out more about this shmuck by looking him up.
    KABC 790’s Doug McIntyre has exposed this goon for what he is.

    Barbra, I’ll be completely honest with you:
    MAY I SLEEP WITH YOU?

    You know “celebrities” have too much money when they can afford to give away property like this and never look back. It’s disgraceful.

    Why would Paul Simon give her a piano? She obviously didn’t appreciate it, she just left it there to rot, what a waste.

    It’s not like she’s God, a exceptional ruler, politician, hero or moral figure of history and these things must be preserved.. Rase the houses, Throw all the rotten materal goods in the ocean and rebuild homes for the poor.

    Yes, she put her non-money-making husband, James Brolin, in charge of this monstrosity. Use some of her millions to refurbish it and turn it into a camp or home for orphans and/or poor/disabled. She has always been a selfish hag, and even tho she has a powerful voice, most of her songs sound the same.

    If the houses are really that bad, why can’t the conservancy knock them down and sell the land? Or auction off the stuff? There is still value to a grand piano even if it was last played by rats.

    Those properties were falling apart when she donated them, that is why she COULD NOT sell it. The quality of workmanship with the exception of “The Barn” was crap. The Art Deco is probably one of the ugliest homes ever designed. It photographs well but if you stand in that home you will become dizzy. She only lived in 1 house the barn used Barwood and The peach house as offices and housed her art deco collection before she sold them in the ugly art deco house. As far as the neighbors. It was a neighbor who ran over the pig that used to walk the canyon because the neighbors are the ones who always speed through the canyon. The conservancy is doing a ok job but they should dump this property is a DUMP. They will also take their fire fighting equipment with them. Good Luck

    Oy vey. Barbra’s taste in decor is as bad as her choice of presidential candidates. Streisand = Hillary Clinton = pure evil.
