Halfway between San Francisco’s high-rises and the tech bubble of Silicon Valley sits a prehistoric-looking property that just went on the market. Known locally as the Flintstones House, a reference to the popular animated sitcom about a Stone Age family, the three-bedroom home is available for $4.2 million.
The listing agent Judy Meuschke assured potential buyers that the asking amount was a “pretty good price for a landmark,” USA Today reported.
Built in 1976 and designed by architect William Nicholson, the 2,370-sq.-ft. property eschews right angles for curves and domes. What may look dated today was innovative at the time. The house was built by spraying concrete over a wire mesh moulded by balloons.
