The home has been gutted and virtually demolished in recent months by the present owner. No word whether he remodeled or has torn it down.

I think it's an ego trip for someone to tear down a star's home.We need our history to be protected.Some people are
only interested in themselves and don't think about what they are doing.I've heard different stories,one being the house was torn down in 2003 but not sure.Beyond sad..

I just now looked for the home on yahoo map and only found
a somewhat recognisable boarder ah! road etc...The area seems without character now...To be honest it looks like parts
of Thousand Oaks where they have some large new homes..
Homogenized ...

Looks like a new house and the original guest house.

It's so sad when we lose a part of history. Falcon Lair was wonderful! People just don't care. They bulldoze wonderful old historic homes and think nothing of it.

Actually it wasn't a new house that birds eye view shows, it was in fact Falcon Lair before it was completely demolished in 2006. Of course, the house looked much different from when Rudolph Valentino and Doris Duke lived in it.

Just learned that some idiot tore the place down...what a waste. That property should've been land-marked or something to protect it. Would've made a marvelous museum.

I agree it would have been a great museum
How sad that a part of Hollywood history has been erased...
