Here at Ealuxe we love movie-themed houses, and this time the Flintstone house got our attention.

And after we’ve seen the best movies and TV bars and restaurants, a Flintstone house was all we needed.

Yabba Dabba Doo! You can now live like Fred Flintstone in this Flintstone inspired house! Of course, if you have $4.2 million at your disposal.

If you have ever traveled between San Francisco and Silicon Valley you surely have seen the orange and purple domes of this home in the distance, right?

At the time you weren’t sure where you have seen this house before, but now you remember don’t you?

This place was inspired by the house of the Flintstones. Now you remember, I know it!

The 2,730-square-foot home was named “The Flintstone House” by the locals. It combines a prehistoric vibe with design twists that are more Space Age than Stone Age.

The house is listed for $4.2 million at Alain Pinel Realtors. It was designed by architect William Nicholson as an experiment in innovative building materials and was built in 1976.

However, it made its first market appearance since 1996, when it last sold for $800,000. And after 19 years the house is finally on sale.

The building’s interior is quite special, one dotted with bright-orange furnishings and accents, punctuated by whimsical works of art that lend to its playful vibe.
