Go Yaba Daba Doo!! Flintstone House Is Up For Sale Again
Here is an interesting piece of news for all the ardent fans of the American cartoon series The Flintstones. The sitcom which was first aired from 1960 to 1966 has been a favourite across age groups and still doesn't fail to entertain the young ones. It showcased the lives of a working-class Stone Age man, his next-door neighbour who is also his best friend, and their families.
One of the homes located in Hillsborough, California, that depict the home shown in the show is up for sale. The property known as Flintstones House is listed among the most unique homes across the globe.
With this property going up for sale, MakaaniQ shares what makes this property stand out and worth investing in:
- Nostalgia: Who would not want to live The Flintstones' life. You can live The Flintstones' life permanently if you are ready to shell $3.2 million or can rent it out at a much lesser price with AirBnB. It is a 2,730-sq-ft property sitting on a hillside. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a game room, and a loft space.
- Designed to perfection: And by perfection here we mean that it is exactly like it was depicted in the series. A hillside residence with purple and orange exterior made of concrete. Constructed in 1970s, the structure has bumpy shapes and has unconventional design inspired by carefree and free-spirited people. The bumpy shapes were designed by spraying shotcrete onto steel rebar and mesh frames over inflated aeronautical balloons.
- The current owner: The current owner of the house is an art lover who has transformed the home into a living art gallery using artwork she collected for over 20 years. In fact the current owner is also the one who painted the exterior into bright purple and orange.
- The interiors: The interiors of the house are similar to the exterior, curvaceous. It is made of stucco, a building material that is water-resistant and durable. The colours and accessories used in the kitchen are a replica of the kitchen shown in the original series including wood-cutout swinging doors, a cooktop, stainless-steel appliances, and a fiberglass sink. With so many elements, the kitchen is as functional as it can get. The home also has a 70s style amoeba-shaped sitting pit designed using pop-colour cushions and rug.
- On the market again: The property has come on the market for the third time now. It first came on the market in 2015 with a price tag of $4.2 million. It came on the market again in 2016 with a price cut and then was taken off the market later in the year. It is now that it is back with a price tag of $3.2 million.
