Anyone with a few million dollars and a hankering to experience the Stone Age can now purchase Dick Clark's cave-like mansion in Malibu, Calif., which the legendary television host has recently put on the market, according to reports.

The property, which sits on a nearly 23-acre mountaintop site, is listed at $3.5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. The paper describes the cavernous home as resembling "something out of The Flinstones."

The one-bedroom, two-bathroom house, where Clark lives with his wife Kari, boasts vaulted ceilings in the living and dining rooms, as well as two fireplaces and a wine cellar, reports the Times. It also features an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean and other natural surroundings, according to the property listing.
