JUST SOLD! $3.9M Idaho Barbie Dreamhouse in Sandpoint [PICS + Barbie Facts!]
At 36, I'm a Barbie girl in a Barbie world.
Living a life filled with adventure, endless opportunity, and fabulous friendships, Barbara Millicent Roberts is my kind of girl. Around the time I was eight or nine, I recall thinking how marvelous it must be to change your mind as often as you change your wardrobe, or even your career.
Without notice or explanation, Barbie's ambition catapulted her from teen fashion model to the first figure to land on the moon in 1965. With a resume boasting more than 200 careers, Barbie is every woman.
A world-renowned icon for over 60 years, Barbie was and still is the quintessential feminist. After all, what is a feminist?
A feminist is a woman who assumes self‐dependence as a basic condition of her life.
She may live with and love other people (feminism does not necessarily imply becoming a hermit and suddenly not needing any emotional life) but she knows that her own fulfillment is her responsibility, that if she wastes her life, she will have no one to blame but herself.
It seems to me that sooner or later, all intelligent women become feminists. —Erica Jong
Like Barbie and so many Idaho women in my circle of friends, Jong captures my personal brand of feminism better than most. Simply put, the 1970s author and poet's definition of the liberated woman is one who thinks for herself. That's Barbie.
Equal measures of resilience and self-reliance, Barbie's a door-kicker who champions the badass in young girls and women around the globe.
IDAHO BARBIE dreamhouse
Life is but a dream when you're Idaho Barbie.
With a backyard spanning over 53 million acres to love and explore, Gem State living appeals to a number of Barbie's interests. From her sense of adventure and athleticism, to her appreciation of wild life and free-thinking nature, Barbie is right at home in Sandpoint, Idaho.
Likewise, everything about a certain Sandpoint property reminded me of Mattel's chief maven. Listed on Zillow at $3.9 million, the stunning '90s home is nestled on the beautiful banks of Lake Pend Oreille.
The Pacific Northwest's largest theme park, Silverwood theme park, Boulder Beach water park, and Scarywood are but three of Sandpoint's most popular attractions! Others include:
- Breweries: Laughing Dog & MickDuff's Brewing Co.
- Cross Country Skiing: Farragut & Round Lake state parks
- Golfing with Sandpoint Elks Golf Course & The Idaho Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design golf course
An accomplished golfer, fisher, boulderer, chef, actress, and adventurist—among many other things—of course Barbie would buy this stunning Sandpoint home!
