Oh, The Flintstones — you know who I’m talking about: Fred, Wilma, Pebbles, Dino, Barney, Betty and Bamm-Bamm — the iconic cartoon family created by Hanna-Barbera.  The 1960s primetime animated sitcom became and American sensation and now, if you’ve got the money, you can purchase a piece of San Francisco history — The Flintstones house!

conversation-pit

Officially, this is only the nickname given to the house by locals, but it’s as fitting as it gets.  The house itself is in one of the wealthiest cities in the country, Hillsborough; about 20 miles south of San Francisco.  The home was built in the 1970s using an experimental technique known as “monolithic dome construction” by the Bay Area architect William Nicholson.

There is very little information about any of the owners.  The house went through major renovation during the 1980s after it was destroyed due to a lack of care, but since then, has become a staple of the community.

The house is currently on the market for a  breezy $4.2 million.
