Debbie Reynolds & Picasso Home Auctions

Pablo Picasso’s last home on the French Riviera, where he created much of his art and where he died in 1973, is going to auction.

“Debbie’s Ranch & Dance Studio”

Debbie Reynolds was involved in one of Hollywood’s famous marital breakups when her husband (Carrie Fisher’s father), Eddie Fisher, left Debbie for Elizabeth Taylor – who in turn left Eddie Fisher for Richard Burton. When Carrie died last year from a cardiac arrest at the age of 60, Debbie died from the complications of a stroke the day after Carrie’s death. In October, Debbie’s ranch, dance studio and both mother’s and daughter’s personal property will be going up for auction.

Debbie’s 44-acre ranch in Creston, California was not her primary home but was where the family gathered on many occasions. It includes a main residence with custom home theater, library and gym; a guest house, caretaker’s house, art studio, barn as well as a professional film and television production facility. There are irrigated pastures, abundant wildlife, a spring-fed pond and panoramic views. It is estimated to sell between $4 million and $8 million.

The dance studio was designed as a rehearsal facility with perks not normally available in similar structures. It is an 18,000-square-foot building with lounge area, dressing rooms, showers and six large studios. Some of the celebrities who have rehearsed there include Lucille Ball, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Bette Midler, Cher, Usher and Mariah Carey. It is expected to sell between $6 million and $8 million. The auctions will be held by Profiles In History Auction House of Calabasas, California.
