Do you find yourself dreaming about what it would be like to be in a cartoon? Stop dreaming and take action. At least that's what Dick Clark did when he masterminded this Flintstones-inspired villa in Malibu, now on the market for a cool $3.5 million, and apparently, so did a few others.
Let's start with Casa de Fred and Wilma. Clark's villa sits on 22 acres overlooking a private beach and has spectacular views of the neighboring area. It looks like the original homestead survived centuries worth of earthquakes, general wear and tear, and whatever killed the dinosaurs, and just got a renovation from Kitchen Cousins. Really, the only thing missing is a golf cart made with logs.
But look! Anything is possible...
All-cartoon-everything isn't limited to the Neanderthals. In Utah, there's a house modeled after the movie "Up," complete with Carl's ties.
In Nevada, a $120,000 recreation of the Simpsons' place was built in 1997 as part of a promotion for FOX and Pepsi. You can practically smell Homer's beer just from the pictures!
Perhaps the best and most realistic house of all is this Hobbit-themed abode in England, constructed by a former art teacher for a mere $247. Michael Buck, a farmer in Oxfordshire, built the house himself after spending two years gathering natural and reclaimed materials for construction. The walls are painted with chalk and plant resin, the roof is made of straw, and he even managed to get around utilities.
OddityCentral.com reports, "Free running water is available at the hut 24/7, thanks to a diverted nearby spring that gurgles out of a pipe outside the house. There is no central heating, but the cob walls and thatched roof provide excellent insulation. The wood-burning stove can be used for cooking and it is strategically placed beneath the bunk style bed. This makes sure that residents stay warm throughout the night. Candles and lanterns provide light."
We looked into a Jetsons home, but then realized that's practically everyone's house now, but where are the flying cars?!
