Visible from Interstate Highway 280, the 39-year-old three bedroom, two bathroom house is striking for its amorphous dome shapes, made of wire and shotcrete.
“Everyone knows the building driving on 280, but when they come inside, they’re in awe,” listing agent Judy Meuschke said.

Zillow — and lots of people — colloquially call it the “Flintstones house.” In the 80s, it was also known as the “Barbapapa house,” after a set of children’s books that was more popular in Europe, though their cartoon shorts briefly aired in the Bay Area at the time.

First, let’s start with the artist’s rendering of the home.

Spacious Loft near The 606 Trail in Logan Square does Price Drop

2436 W. Bloomingdale Ave

$2,499,900


There’s a bow truss timber loft near The 606 Trail, and recently, the former auto mechanics garage has dropped a whopping $350k from the original asking price.

Situated between the border of Logan Square and Bucktown, the 7,600-square-foot home was priced at $2.85 million last August, and is now selling at $2,499,900. 

The home is most specially designed and architecturally unique as they come. From the massive glass enclosed deck to the 23 ft tall ceilings that are packed with industrial skylights, this home offers both beauty and brains.

Things to take note of: there are six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a designer chef’s kitchen with a massive island that includes imported Scavolini cabinets, top-brand appliances, plus twin undermount sinks. So, if you’re a connoisseur of kitchens, a chef, or simply a chef at heart, this one wouldn’t disappoint.

There are radiant heated floors throughout the home, which is often considered the best kind of heating system, because you don’t realize it’s there.

With a split 4-car heated garage, there’s ample room for you and your guests to park your vehicles, as well as do—well, plain ole’ garage stuff.

And have we somehow failed to mention that there’s a rooftop deck overlooking The 606 Trail? Or how there happens to be a den on the third floor? Just thought we’d add that much in there for you to take into consideration.

In the meantime, check out this masterpiece for yourself.
