Yabba Dabba Doo! Dick Clark's 'Flintstones' House Sells
TruliaThe unique retreat in Malibu once owned by Dick Clark has only one bedroom but sits on almost 23 acres.

After languishing on the Malibu housing market for more than two years, the Flintstone-esque home of the late, great Dick Clark has finally sold.

Originally listed for $3.5 million, the one-bedroom home's price came tumbling down $250,000 in the summer of 2013, and without a buyer in sight, the price was again reduced by a quarter of a million dollars in March 2014. Property records show the rock-solid home sold this week for just half of its original asking price: $1,777,777.

One of Malibu's landmark properties, Clark's former retreat features unparalleled 360-degree views that take in the Pacific Ocean, area mountains and the sparkling lights of Los Angeles. According to real estate agent Diane Carter of Coldwell Banker, who represented both the buyer and the seller, the Clarks used the home as a weekend getaway for many years. The TV and music industry personality died in 2012.

This unusually imaginative architectural creation is nestled atop a mountain on an eye-popping 22.89 acres and features one bedroom and two bathrooms, as well as breathtaking ocean and mountain views.

Truly unique inside and outside, the architecture of this home seamlessly marries form and function. The interior features an expanse of glass to capture the views from every room. Vaulted ceilings enhance the living room and dining room, which has a wood-burning fireplace and intimate seating areas. The master suite is at once spacious and intimate.

According to the listing agent, the striking home designed by Phillip Jon Brown "is art as architecture at its finest." For the new buyers, Clark's former Malibu retreat offers seclusion, privacy and serenity, but is still just minutes from the beach.
