A home in the San Francisco Bay area known to locals as the Flintstone House was designed by architect William Nicholson and built in 1976. It was an alternative architectural experiment in forming the structure by spraying shotcrete onto steel rebar and mesh frames over inflated aeronautical balloons, creating organic free-form shapes. At the time it became controversial among other property owners in the upscale Hillsborough community but has since become a favorite landmark that can be viewed from Interstate 280.
Between the architect, interior designers, artists and the current owner, the soaring and curving white walls are a perfect foil for art and collections and provide both the exterior and interior a sense of magic and whimsy. The tangerine and purple home measures approximately 2,730 square feet with three bedrooms, two baths, a freeform biologic kitchen, game room and conversation pit with terraces overlooking Crystal Springs Reservoir. Imaginative bay area hill home reduced from $4.2 million to $3.78 million.
