Carmaker John DeLorean's Country Club House Too Uncool to Be Modified For Time Travel

New, 22 comments

Well, carmaker John DeLorean's house sure is disappointing. The man behind the gull-wing-doored DMC-12--one of the most boldly-designed cars ever, the car that Doc Brown modified into a time machine in the Back to the Future trilogy--lived in a pretty standard mid-century ranch house in the middle of San Diego County. Oh well. DeLorean died in 2005 (following years of various scandals) and his 1960 house in Pauma Valley (about 50 miles northeast of San Diego) was put up for sale late last year, according to It sits on more than 17 acres in the Pauma Valley Country Club and comes with four bedrooms, five bathrooms, horse stables, "4 distinctive income producing homes, as well as a home and workshop for a live-in groundskeeper." The country club has a golf course, tennis court, and pool, plus its own private airport (So, where the buyer of this house is going, he won't need roads. Sorry sorry sorry.). Asking price is $2.18 million with monthly HOA dues of $251.
