All About The Pink Abode
The oceanfront Malibu mansion boasts of panoramic views of the ocean. Guests will be able to take a spin through Ken's colorful wardrobe and choose the best outfit for themselves to enjoy at the beach. Guests can also unleash their inner cowboy and learn line dance on Ken's outdoor disco dancer floor or can even perform on Ken's guitar. They enjoy plenty of sunbathing and take a dip in the mansion's infinity pool.
The mansion has a spacious pink bedroom with cowboy-themed hats and horse-printed throws as well as a closet. Some of Barbie's iconic clothing pieces are also in the house, like the pink show or the feather decoration from the movie that hangs in the closet.
"I've added a few touches to bring some much-needed Kenergy to the newly renovated and iconic Malibu DreamHouse," Ken said in the announcement.
