An imaginative, cavern-style house in Malibu that looks like something out of "The Flintstones" has come on the market at $3.5 million. What a contrast then that the owners are seemingly ageless television personality Dick Clark and his wife, Kari, according to public records.
The usual architectural retreat sits on a mountaintop within a nearly 23-acre site. Free-form walls punctuated with expanses of glass bring in ocean views.
The one-bedroom, two-bathroom custom house, which has the interior ambience of a bright cave, has vaulted ceilings in the living and dining rooms, a fireplace and a wine cellar.
Clark, 82, hosted "American Bandstand" for more than three decades starting in the '50s as well as game shows and "The Dick Clark Show" (1958-60). His "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" show marked its 40th anniversary this year. He started Dick Clark Productions in 1957 and sold it in 2007 for $175 million.
