Fans of "The Flintstones" will have the opportunity to purchase their own little piece of Bedrock next week. The colorful, unique home known as the "Flintstone House" in Hillsborough, California, will be for sale for $4.2 million. While it fits right in with Fred, Barney, Wilma and Betty, the house wasn't used in the live-action movie adaptations of the 1960s animated series.
Bay Area architect William Nicholson designed the house in 1976, using experimental architecture and nontraditional building materials, according to an Alain Pinel Realtors press release. The single-family home got its nickname because it has a stone exterior and many bubble-like domes. The house is visible from Interstate 280 and is an area landmark. Hillsborough is 17 miles south of San Francisco.
Located at 45 Berryessa Way, the house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a domed ceiling living room with a sunken conversation pit, and it overlooks the Crystal Springs Reservoir. The kitchen has lighted niches, appliance enclosures and glass countertops.
This will be the first time in 19 years the home is for sale. Alain Pinel Realtors is the listing broker, while the listing agent is Judy Meuschke. More information will be available at flintstonehouse280.com next week when the house will be officially listed.
