Perhaps people love the movie celebrities on the screens and not near them. There have been lots of stories how celebrity neighbors created troubled for their neighbors – from socialite Paris Hilton to calm and somber movie star Gwyneth Paltrow everyone has caused some kind of trouble to their neighbors.
It has been reported that Gwyneth Paltrow and her hubby Chris Martin have made their neighbors upset after they bought their third house on North London Street, in London. The the movie celebrity couple has caused their neighbors to complain because they plan to create a 10 foot steel security barrier across the premises getting rid of the house’s original wooden fence.
The neighbors are offended over the issue that the fence would make the locality look out of place. While the couple wish to build the steel fence for safety concerns, angry residents of the locality came out with an outburst and complained that the fence is just going to look ridiculous and they plan to object.
"They are turning a Victorian house into a fortress," another householder commented on the issue. The neighbors have also complained that they have taken down trees so they can park their flashy cars in the driveway and are putting a huge swimming pool in the back garden. The celebrities said the trees were diseased but the neighbors think that they can say anything they want and get away with it if have that amount of money and are using their power and riches to get what they want.
Roswitha Gerlitz, another irritated neighbor on London Street also expressed her disapproval of the fencing and said that she can understand that they want their privacy but she thinks it's a bit unnecessary. She thinks the metal fence will look quite hostile and unappealing. She felt that it was useless and said, she doesn’t think it's necessary. Their privacy is respected anyway.
Paltrow and Martin first originally the home in London Street in 2004 from Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes for about $4 million dollars. After that, they added another property there for $5 million dollars that enabled them to create a 33-room super house. Now the newly bought third house is a $700,000 house and they plan to use it as a staff house.
Whatever the residents have to complain, nothing is going to change the plan of the couple. Though they maintained silence in the issue and nothing has been commented on the complaints, it seems that their silence is the answer to their adamant move to erect the steel fence.
