    That looks like a painted garden shed, both inside and out.

    Also, whoever put that fireplace there deserves to be shot.

    I suspect this house has a secret dungeon where the sex slaves are held.

    Rather a high price to pay for kitsch, but it’s the perfect house for the retro-lounge hipster.

    I can already see the amoeba-shaped coffee table.

    I am hung up big-time on that street name. I mean, I know how it would be pronounced in French, but I think the average American would sound like they were choking on a croissant.

  5. DensityDuck Says:

    What is this obsession with fireplaces? I have lived in three places now where there was a fireplace crammed into the living room, taking up space, massive and dominating and pointless. Are we supposed to be connecting back to some imagined agrarian heritage?

  6. Area 51 Says:

    Since those “eichlers” are made of cardboard and have an R rating of maybe 1 or 2, you’re gonna need that fireplace cranking 24/7 or else expect a heating bill of $700-1000/mo. in the winter.

  7. Area 51 Says:

    HA! I think that street name would be pronounced something like:
    or GAS-SWAN

  8. burbed Says:

    Actually, fireplaces are shown to make other parts of the house colder. So that would be a bad idea.

    A-51, ain’t you the cunning linquist!

    In Alameda, they pronounce Versailles as “Ver Sales”. This address would be unpronounceable. Gase kwon? Gas kone? Gas qoon?

  11. sonarrat Says:

    The real problem is that it’s Gascoigne DRIVE. Even if you knew how to pronounce it – gos KWAN – you would have to shape your lips like a flehmening bull and then snap them back down to pronounce the next hard consonant. If it was, say, 10605 Rue Gascoigne it would be fine. Brilliant actually.

  12. Elsie Says:

    Looking on the web – found out about a South Carolina Plantation –

    “Gascoigne (pronounced “gas’-co-ny”)”

    Also, if no Eichlers in area to “preserve” this is most definitely a tear-down for the land.

    And yes, fireplaces are the stupidest thing for California – alot of my friends bought houses with them and they (a) take up too much valuable real-esate space, (b) shouldn’t be used as they aren’t “retrofitted” for Earthquake and (c) they create more pollution than buying a “fuel-efficient” hybrid will ever save. When we bought our house, we tore out the chimney and got back a 1/3 of our living room back to put the flat panel TV. It’s all about maximizing your living-space.

  13. Ben Says:

    in other words, don’t try to understand ’em — just poke and rope and brand ’em.

    “I suspect this house has a secret dungeon where the sex slaves are held.”

    Then it’s a bargain.

  15. REnevergoesdown Says:

    I think the paint scheme is called Avocado ThrowUp

  16. Tria Says:

    Okay, I see where the laundry area is identified as being inside, but what about the bathroom?

  17. ex-sunnyvale-renter Says:

    Hewlett-Packard test equipment (when it was made here (when they made real test equipment)) used to be colored a shade just a bit lighter than that, which we tech types call with pride, “monkey-puke green”. It’s a thing of pride to have a “wall of green” hehe. However, that goes not go for that God-awful house.

    Yeah, I’d bet for meth lab or sex-slave holding tank down below, rotting kitsch “kitschen” appliences (or really badly done “granite” countertops) silverfish and centipedes and silverfish galore. And, well, check the Megan’s Law site before making your offier….

  18. ex-sunnyvale-renter Says:

    Wow I can’t spell.

    I’d bet it’s pronounced “gas-coin” around there though.

  19. Jay Says:

    I’m betting on gas-COYG-nee.

  20. Thats cool Says:

    that’s a great price

    Avacado Throwup? Now I have Swiss Coffee through the nose.
