Yabba Dabba Dick Clark’s Flintstone-esque House for Sale

- — Who knew that the timeless music countdown maestro Dick Clark was also a lover of architecture as art? Or, make that, architecture as cave.

A new listing by the 82-year-old "American Bandstand" host and host of countless New Year's Eve nights in Times Square has hit the Malibu real estate market and caused a few heads to turn.

Of course, those heads have to turn up, since the cavern-like structure, listed for $3.5 million, is nestled on 22 acres on top of a mountain. The 1-bedroom, 2-bathroom specialty dwelling affords some spectacular, 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Boney Island, Channel Island, the Serrano Valley and the bright lights of Los Angeles.

Dick Clark continues to maintain his hold on pop culture events across many venues. Despite a stroke in 2004, he returned to host the New Year's Eve special alongside Ryan Seacrest a year later. And while he sold Dick Clark Productions in 2007 for $175 million to Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder, the Dick Clark brand continues to be part of some of the biggest productions in showbiz. Currently, Dick Clark Productions is in a big legal battle with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association over the production of the Golden Globes award show.

So while Dick Clark and his wife are looking to part with their mountaintop cave home, his name brand is still shining in those bright Hollywood lights.
