Being the neighbor of famous actress Gwyneth Paltrow might not be a lot of fun. At least this is what the latest rumors have been claiming. According to these rumors, the popular actress is actually seen as an enemy by her neighbors because of her intentions to do some renovation work.
So, it has been claimed that Gwyneth plans on building a 14,000-square foot mansion in the area of Montecito, California. And this decision has “created an uproar with neighbors on all three sides.” The main reason why the neighbors don’t agree with her construction plan is linked to the fact that such a building would block the neighbors’ views. And it seems that they are determined to stop the actress from completing the planned construction.
“She’s created an uproar with neighbors on all three sides,” a spokesman for one of the neighbors said. The same spokesman claimed that all the neighbors think that the construction would be too big and too tall. Furthermore, the construction would be incompatible with the rest of the houses in the area, Page Six reported. The same spokesman said that the neighbors tried to talk to the star and reason with her, but they achieved no conclusion and Gwyneth is set to continue with her building plans.
Allegedly, the property’s construction has already been approved by the Montecito Board of Architectural Review, but only after the actress’s architect claimed that the house has been lowered 8 feet. Andrew Rice claimed that despite these statements, the house was lowered only 1 foot, so the actress has broken this requirement and the project is moving forward.
This is not the first time when Gwyneth has been dealing with some problems because of what she wants to build in or add to her home. The same happened with her Brentwood property, when neighbors filed a complaint against the star for erecting an oversize 9-foot gate in the area. Locals accused the star of not carrying about their concerns and continuing with her construction plans.
