The listing agent for the Flintstone House in Hillsborough notified us this morning that the price will be cut by $420,000 later today, taking it from $4.2 million to $3.78 million. Judy Meuschke of Alain Pinel Realtors says that the home has drawn good interest from buyers. "I think the price reduction may entice those buyers who would love this house," she says.
The house that is well known to generations of Bay Area residents went on the market last fall. The three-bedroom, two-bath home presents as a series of amorphous shapes perched on the hills over I-280 in Hillsborough.
It was built in 1976 by architect William Nicholson as an exercise in using innovative building materials. The current owner lived there for 19 years and gave it its distinctive rusty orange shade in 2007.
Echoing earlier statements, Meuschke said: "Everyone loves this house, it is like a piece of valuable modern art."
