After the cherished property languished on the Malibu housing market for two-and-a-half years, the estate of the late, great Dick Clark has finally sold his beloved Flintstone-esque home atop a bluff.
Originally listed for $3,500,000, the home saw its price come tumbling down $250,000 in the summer of 2013, and without a buyer in sight, the price was again reduced by a quarter-million dollars in March 2014. Property records show the rock-solid home sold on December 17, 2014, for just half of its original asking price: $1,777,777.
One of Malibu’s landmark properties, Clark’s stone home features unparalleled 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, Boney Mountains, Serrano Valley, Los Angeles sunsets, and sparkling city lights. According to his real estate agent, Diane Carter, the Clarks used the home as a weekend retreat for many years.
This unusually imaginative architectural creation is nestled atop a mountain on an eye-popping 22.89 acres and features 1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms, as well as breathtaking ocean and mountain views.
Truly exceptional and one of a kind from within and without, the architecture of this home seamlessly marries form and function. The interior space is extremely voluminous and features an expanse of glass to capture the views from every room of this home. Vaulted ceilings enhance the living room and dining room with its wood-burning fireplace and intimate seating areas. The master suite is simultaneously spacious and intimate.
According to the listing agent, “This is art as architecture at its finest.” For the new buyers, Clark’s former Malibu retreat offers seclusion, privacy, and serenity but is still just minutes from the beach.
