Stalking Barry Manilow, Part II

Last time I was in Palm Springs I did a little stalking of Barry Manilow’s house, but thanks to Richard, who posted a comment on my previous Barry post telling me that Mr. Manilow’s home actually has TWO addresses, I was able to stalk the other side of his house this weekend while I was in the desert.  Barry’s house is so ginormous that it apparently fronts two roads and therefore has two addresses!!  Unfortunately, though, there isn’t a whole lot to see from this side of the house either.  😦 

While we there Barry’s gate opened and a Porsche SUV with Nevada license plates drove out!  It wasn’t actually Barry driving, but I am pretty sure it was his car, as he is now performing regularly in Las Vegas.  We followed the car (only because we had to drive in that same direction – honest!) and the person drove into the local car wash.  My guess is that it was the personal assistant out to get Bar’s car washed.  🙂  The pic to the left is a farway shot of the car that came out of his house.

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  🙂

Stalk It:  Barry’s house can be found at 200 W. Camino Encanto in Palm Springs.  The back side is located at 2196 S. Camino Barranca.  Even though you can’t see much of the house thanks to large gates and trees, being that I am a HUGE Barry fan, it was still pretty cool just being there.  🙂

  1. Architecture

    PALM SPRINGS, CA, SEES SALES UP IN HOMES AS ART BY ARCHITECTS OF ONE-OF-A-KIND ESTATES BUILT IN THE ’70s…
    International philanthropists Craig Baskin and Donald Russell have purchased the “Waterfall House”, created by noted Modernist architect James Cioffi, in Palm Springs South End, near singers Keely Smith and Barry Manilow, and actress Suzanne Somers. Designed in 1978, the home features only two bedrooms but 4.5 baths in 5,000 SF. The noted feature is a waterfall which flows off the roof and into the pool, with 360 degree views of the San Jacinto Mountains. The pair sold their country estate, Hound Hollow, in Charlottesville, Virgnia’s horse country,to that state’s former Governor Gerald Baliles. Charlottesville is the home to bandleader Dave Matthews, authors John Grisham, Jan Karon and Rita Mae Brown, actress Sissy Spacek and philanthropist and vintner, Patricia Kluge. Baskin and Russell were benefactors of the Heritage Repertory Theatre at The University of Virgnia. The pair will now divide time between Palm Springs and their villa, Casa sin Vista in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where they help fund SAFE, Salud de los Animales y Familias con educacion, a foundation which rescues dogs and cats and educates families about proper pet care. In Palm Beach, Florida, they were among the founders of the Tri-County Humane Society Home for Geriatric Dogs. Russell is a former executive with McDonald’s Corporation and Baskin is a cousin to the late Princess Grace of Monaco, who frequently visited Palm Springs during her film career in Hollywood with James Stewart, Alfred Hitchcock and Cary Grant.
