'Flintstone House': Owner gives ABC7 News exclusive tour of Hillsborough home, says she's fighting City lawsuit
It's the residence that's divided lawmakers in Hillsborough and those who live there. Here's an exclusive look inside the "Flintstone House" in Hillsborough.

HILLSBOROUGH, California -- The City of Hillsborough is suing the owner of the so-called "Flintstone House" for creating structures, statues and home improvements without permits.

Homeowner Florence Fang told reporter Vic Lee she will fight the city and gave an exclusive tour of the unique, stone age home.

"Thank you for giving me a chance to tell my story," she said.

The homeowner gave ABC7 News an exclusive tour of the house and told us she is fighting the City lawsuit against it.

She declined to go on camera but gave a tour of the now controversial residence.

It's a three-bedroom, 2,700 square foot home built in 1976.

What's most striking is there are no square rooms, only curved lines everywhere.

In the front yard stands a lifesize statue of Fred Flintstone. He's joined by his wife Wilma and baby dinosaur Dino, and of course, dinosaur eggs.

Let's not forget the Flintstones' friends, the Rubbles.

In the backyard, away from the public street, there are large dinosaurs, a giraffe, and even Bigfoot surrounded by colorful mushrooms.

Florence Fang's favorite room is the "conversation pit."

It's peaceful and private, but the view of the 280 freeway also reminds her that she's not isolated from the world, or from the complaints of some residents and the City of Hillsborough which is suing Fang for creating what it calls a "highly visible eyesore."

Fang thanks her many supporters who have contacted her through social media.

"It makes me realize that I am not the only one fighting for the legendary Flintsones. It is truly an American memory that makes people smile and feel good about themselves."

She says the house and fixtures make her happy.

It makes her grandchildren happy as well.

"Let's keep Fred and the Dino alive and work together to keep on," Fang said. "I will fight the best I can. Stay tuned."

She has hired renowned San Francisco attorney Angela Alioto to help her do so.
