No, that’s not Fred Flintstone foot-driving his way up to this unique Bedrock-esque house in Malibu, Calif., but the property is home to a legendary Hollywood personality: Dick Clark. The Los Angeles Times reports that the esteemed television host and his wife, Kari, have recently put the eye-catching property up for sale and are asking $3.5 million for the retreat.
Set atop a secluded 23-acre plateau, the Clarks’ home boasts expansive 360-degree views that stretch as far as the Channel Islands, Boney Mountains, Serrano Valley and the bright city lights of Tinseltown. It has a very cave-like architectural feel, hence "The Flintstones" reference, and, despite offering just one bedroom and two baths, has a voluminous feel due to use of vaulted ceilings and an expansive use of glass in the design. Living and dining rooms, intimate seating areas and a wood-burning fireplace round out this one-of-a-kind real estate offering.
The host of "American Bandstand" for more than three decades, "The Dick Clark Show" and various game shows, the veteran entertainer has seemingly stood the test of time and has become synonymous with New Year’s Eve celebrations with his annual year-end special, "Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve."
The listing is presented by Diane Carter of Coldwell Banker – Malibu Colony.
