Iconic Bay Area Flintstone Home Under Stone Age Criticism
Last week the city of Hillsborough filed a lawsuit against the homeowner of the landmark Flintstone House nestled in the hills off of I-280. A longtime Bay Area icon, the historic domed home was designed by architect William Nicholson in 1976. Since then, it has been heralded as an architectural marvel for its experimental style and use of new materials.
However, naysaying neighbors and city planning officials are now opposing the unique house and its stone age adornments added by the new owner, citing them as a public nuisance and eye sore. The iconic home is owned by distinguished Bay Area business leader and philanthropist Florence Fang, who plans to fight the lawsuit alongside a bastion of supporters who want to preserve the celebrated landmark and her vision.
