Phillip Jon Brown, the architect who designed the house, was able to help both sides reach a compromise when he suggested building a home that looked like a natural rock formation.
This real life version of the Flintstones’ home is built on more than 22 acres, and it has several large glass windows offering views of the Boney Mountains, the Channel Islands and the Pacific Ocean.
After Dick Clark passed away his widow sold the house.
