The Fred Flinstone House in Mailbu - listed at 3.5 Million
Malibu is an affluent beachfront city in northwestern Los Angeles County, California, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 12,645. Malibu consists of a 21-mile (34 km) strip of prime Pacific coastline. Nicknamed “the ‘Bu” by surfers and locals, the community is famous for its warm, sandy beaches, and for being the home of many Hollywood movie stars and others associated with the entertainment industry. Signs around the city proclaim “27 miles of scenic beauty”, referring to Malibu’s original length of 27 miles (43 km) before the city was incorporated in 1991.
Most Malibu residents live within a few hundred yards of Pacific Coast Highway (State Route 1), which traverses the city, with some residents living up to a mile away from the beach up narrow canyons, and many more residents of the unincorporated canyon areas identifying Malibu as their hometown. The city is also bounded (more or less) by Topanga Canyon to the East, the Santa Monica Mountains consisting of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, and Woodland Hills to the North, the Pacific Ocean to the South, and Ventura County to the West.
Malibu’s beaches include Surfrider Beach, Zuma Beach, Malibu State Beach, Topanga State Beach, Point Dume State Beach and Dan Blocker Beach; its local parks include Malibu Bluffs Park (formerly Malibu Bluffs State Park), Trancas Canyon Park, Las Flores Creek Park, and Legacy Park,] with neighboring parks Malibu Creek State Park, Leo Carrillo State Beach and Park, Point Mugu State Park, and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, and neighboring state beach Robert H. Meyer Memorial State Beach, that was once part of Old Malibu (before Malibu became a city), and better known as pristine beaches, El Pescador, La Piedra and El Matador.
Malibu Romantic Flintstones Retreat House was owned by American television and radio legend, Dick Clark. This house sits on a 23 acres lot in Malibu giving one a 360 degree view of mountains, seas and cityscapes.
This home would make you say “Yabaa-Dabba-Doo” like the famous expression of Fred Flintstone. One would have the feeling of being a modern day Fred with the aura and design of this house. One look at it would make you think that it is a massive structure but it is actually built using light materials combined with concrete. The inner walls are made of wood while the ceilings used steel beams covered with concrete to get that rock-like appearance. It has one bedroom and two bathrooms that both made use of modern appliances despite retaining a pre-historic look. The interior design of the house used irregular shapes and stone colors. While the exterior really looked like real rock especially that real stones where integrated to the concrete and scrubbed to expose it.
The house came from the idea of Architect Phillip Jon Brown who suggested to create a house that looked like a rock formation since it is situated next to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area. The prehistoric design was dictated by circumstance. The 23-acre site is next to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area, which originally objected to Clark building a home on the property. The idea was then made real with this home. Aside from its impressive design, this home also offers a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean, Boney Mountains and Los Angeles. One will love the place for it is like a secluded retreat right in the center of nature’s gift of beauty, peace and serenity.
The one-bedroom Malibu home is listed for $3.5 million
