According to the listing agent, reports of the Flintstone House being pulled from the market are incorrect. When the so-called Flintstone House in Hillsborough came up for sale at $4.2 million, a lot of people took notice of the iconic property. So naturally, we took notice when we spotted reports of the property being pulled from the market, assuming buyers were saying "yabba-dabba-don't." However, the agent says that offer still stands.
According to listing agent Judy Meuschke of Alan Pinel: "It is active and never intended to be off-market. The listing date expired and the MLS pulled if off automatically. The seller extended the listing expiration. It's still available for that special buyer."
The three-bedroom, two-bath home is instantly recognizable to many Bay Area residents, due to its unusual shape. It takes the form of a series of sprawling blobs perched in the hills over I-280 in Hillsborough. It was built in 1976 by architect William Nicholson as an experiment in innovative building materials. The current owner has lived there for 19 years, and painted it a rusty orange shade in 2007.
"It's really a piece of art," Meuschke told us earlier. "It has amorphous windows and an almost Southwestern style." The agent added that she had been overwhelmed with calls about the home. However, apparently none of those queries has produced an offer (yet).
