Among the rocky landscape of Escondido’s Hidden Meadows, a cave-like dwelling fit for the Flintstones or Dick Clark is on the market for $895,000.

The artsy estate was built in 2005 by architect James T. Hubbell. Both the exterior and interior look like he carved it out of a giant boulder.

Domed ceilings, stained glass windows and hand-carved details fill the formless floor plan, which holds four bedrooms and 2.75 bathrooms in 2,107 square feet. Artist Gale Pruitt owns the place, and a few of her sculptures dot the landscape throughout the 15.8-acre setting.

The home also features a hardwood-lined living room, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, two fireplaces and a set of custom stairs. On the second story, a balcony and terrace take in canyon views.
