Dick Clark's House
An iconic celebrity needs an equally impressive home, and that is exactly what television legend Dick Clark has had. It looks just like the Flintstones' home in the famous cartoon. Sitting on top of a very steep hill, the specially designed home is on the market for $3.5 million, but its appearance from the outside is not the biggest selling point it has to offer.
The unusual architectural retreat has huge glass windows in every room which give amazing views of the nearby Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, Boney Mountains and Serrano Valley.
Although the property only has one bedroom, it boasts two bathrooms and looks like a cavern throughout the whole house.
The cave like structure and high ceilings add to the Flintstones feel, as does the log
burning fire place and its wine cellar.
Set in a 23-acre estate, the luxurious and extrovert home is an architectural marvel and
is classed as one of Malibu's landmark buildings.
The listing agent describes it as: 'art as architecture at its finest.'
They said it is: 'Truly exceptional and one-of-a-kind from within and without.
The architecture of this home seamlessly marries form and function. The interior
space is extremely voluminous and features an expanse of glass to capture the views
from every room of this home.'
The owners of the property, Kari and Dick, are well known in America
for their youthful appearance and Dick's impressive career.
The television and radio legend is best known for hosting long-running TV shows
such as American Bandstand, the game show Pyramid, and Dick Clark's New
Year's Rockin' Eve.
He is also known for his departing catchphrase, 'For now, Dick Clark, so long,'
which he says while doing a military salute. Clark suffered a stroke in 2004 but
returned to host his New Year's Rockin' Eve show on 31 December 2005 with a
shaky performance and slightly slurred speech.
In 1973, he created the American Music Awards Show, which he still produced
