UPDATE (4/18/2012): According to news reports, Dick Clark passed away today, only few months after he put his Malibu home on the market. Clark reportedly died of a “massive heart attack” after undergoing surgery the previous night. He was 82.



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 late “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.

Despite a stroke in 2004, Clark maintained quite a hold on pop culture events in the following years, hosting the New Year’s Eve special alongside Ryan Seacrest annually. 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.

Dick Clark's house is drawing comparisons to another cultural icon: "The Flintstones" house.
