Dick Clark’s “Flintstones” Home Faces Rocky Market
You’d think a listing offering 23 acres of Malibu bluff space, with panoramic vistas of the Pacific Ocean and nearby mountains, would be snapped up by an enthusiastic movie star or celebrity.
But when the style of the house brings back memories of Fred and Wilma Flintstone’s stone-age abode, it takes a particularly devoted fan to stay with the transaction.
Dick Clark listed the one-bedroom home, his second house used primarily on weekends, two months before his May 2012 death for $3.5 million. Nearly a year later, the listing dropped to $3.25 million, and this month the price dropped again, to just under $3 million.
Described as a marriage of “form, function, and nature,” the home includes a “voluminous interior” with vaulted ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and “intimate seating areas.” Photos show a striking exterior with an interior that carries through the motif, with neutral colors, recessed lighting, and openings in walls to provide a cavernous feel. But there’s no word on whether the shower comes with a wooly mammoth showerhead or pelican garbage disposal.
The late Clark’s primary home was also well-known for its unique styling, a large hexagon steps away from the Malibu beach.
