A Malibu home that once served as the romantic getaway for the late Dick Clark and his wife has sold for the odd sum of $1,777,777. Clark's widow Kari sold the cozy pad for that strange figure because of the significance the number 7 held for her and her late husband. Dick and Kari Clark were married on July 7, 1977 (7/7/77), and remained married until the American Bandstand host's death in 2012.

The home was a one-bedroom, two-bathroom getaway for the Clarks designed by the architect Phillip Jon Brown, according to the L.A. Times. The house was designed to blend in with its surroundings and look like it was carved out of stone, and sits on a 23-acre property with views facing the ocean.
