DICK CLARK'S HOUSE!
House of the Day: Dick Clark's Rockin' Stone-Age Home! Everyone knows that "America's Oldest Teenager" Dick Clark, who died at the age of 82, liked rock. But even we didn't realize how much until we saw the listing for his hilltop Malibu retreat. The house, on 23 acres with ocean and mountain views, bears a striking resemblance to the one owned by cartoon character Fred Flintstone.
Architect Phillip Jon Brown explained that the house was built to look like a rock formation because of its proximity to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area. Brown told CNNMoney, "I came up with the idea that if the house looked like a rock formation, the park conservancy would let us build on top. They liked the concept."
Sitting on top of a very steep hill, the specially designed home is on the market for $3.5 million but it's 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.
Here Are Some Photos Of His Beautiful Home. Enjoy! :)
Although the property only has one bedroom, it boasts two bathrooms and looks like a cavern throughout.
The cave like structure and high ceilings add to the Flintstones feel as does the fire place and wine cellar.
Set in a 23-acre estate the luxury and extrovert home is an architectural marvel and is classed as one of Malibu landmark buildings.
The listing agent describes it as "art as architecture at it�s 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 TV and radio legend was best known for hosting long-running shows such as American Bandstand, the game show Pyramid, and Dick Clark�s New Year�s Rockin Eve.
He was 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 December 31, 2005 with a shaky performance and slightly slurred speech. Sadly, he passed away this year, 2012.
In 1973, he created the American Music Awards show, which he still produced every year before his death.
