Flintstone House is Still on the Market

This non-traditional Flinstone house is available in the San Franciso Bay area.

I am all for non-traditional architecture, but the décor of the Flintstone house in the San Francisco area is so specific that it’s having a hard time finding a buyer.

Originally designed by architect William Nicholson in 1976, the bubble-like structure was created as a way to experiment with new building materials and techniques. Nicholson sprayed concrete onto wire mesh frames and inflated balloons in order to create the bubble-like appearance. It was remodeled in the 2000s, but with three bedrooms and two baths, the 2,730-square-foot-home last sold in 1996 for $800,000.

The Flintstone house is considered by some to be a Bay Area landmark, and it is certainly a fun idea. Hopefully someone with a wacky aesthetic (or penchant for psychedelic substances) will snatch up the property, and turn a house into a home.

As of September, the Hillsborough home was listed on the market at $4.2 million. On a totally selfish note, for 800k I’d buy it now, but the price of $4.2 million makes me wonder just how much more I’ll be shelling out for maintenance. Last I checked there were no Angie’s List contractors for Flintstone homes, and I’ve yet to hear of a bank advertising great low rates on prehistoric style abodes.
