A condo alternative w/ a new roof! A great place to start in a lovely town only minutes from SF and Peninsula. Sunny location away from the stress of the city. Small town of less than 4000 people. Free Shuttle to Bart/Caltrain. Close to schools, restaurants, coffee house, library, parks, and public pool.

Thanks to Burbed reader Jeff for this find. Now this is what I like! $832 per square feet!

Jeff thinks the ceilings are moldy – but I’m not so sure. It might just be decorational. What do you think?

Personally I find the exterior pics more interesting. I really like the symmetry of the house vs the shed in the back:

Actually, on second thought, are those two pictures of the same house – front and back? I’m pretty confused at this point.

Nonetheless, I think the person who took the primary photo (at the top of this post) deserves an award for Best Angle and Creative Composition. I bet the photog also worked on Godzilla and other similar projects. Great work!

This kind of stuff just adds value and makes the price worthwhile!

    Hmm, a half a mil for a Bonsai house. In a bad area. Cute.

    Maybe a German teenager will buy it with his allowance, once he changes it into nearly-worthless USbucks.

    I’ve always wondered about Brisbane. I hear some good things about it, but it’s right on the other side of the mountain from San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley, which is one of the most violent parts of the Bay Area. That would make me very nervous.

    Eww – just noticed the ceiling. Do you think that could be a body?

    that’s a tuff-shed! And not even a nice one at that!

    Half a mill for a SHED, in a bad part of town. I love California.

    ESR: Not sure where there would be room to stash a body?? It’s a single-story shack with a “new roof.” I guess someone could have been stashed under the roof when they put it on.

    Looks like stable-turned-house. Horses are gone. Now you live here.
