Whoever buys the place from the “world’s oldest teenager” will likely feel as if they are channeling another celebrity: Fred Flintstone.
The architect, Phillip Jon Brown, said the prehistoric design was dictated by circumstance. The 23-acre site is next to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area, which originally objected to Clark building a home on the property.
“[Clark] dug in his heels and said he was going to build a house there,” said Brown, “I came up with the idea that if the house looked like a rock formation, the park conservancy would let us build on top. They liked the concept.”
