Now as we all know, Newark technically isn’t in The Real Bay Area. After all, the median price there is below $690k.

But still, Burbed reader Peter thought it would be nice to share this entry. And I agree. For those not fortunate enough to make more than $125k a year, this is a good opportunity for you to at least live near The Real Bay Area.

In particular, Peter called out the kitchen – let’s take a look:

Wow, is that retro chic or what?  $399k for 752 sqft, includes this? Sold, sold, sold.

If I were you, I’d keep it exactly like this – they don’t make appliances like that anymore, and thus it can go only up.

Or at the very least, you can donate this kitchen to the Smithsonian and get a big write off!

    There’s no HOA – anyone surprised by that? No? The gigantic stump in the middle of the front lawn should tip you off. But it’s a single-family home not in the middle of a war zone for less than $400K, so hey.

    OMG! Look at that stove! You can’t find that kind of ‘retro’ these days. This home is worth every penny of $399,950. LOL

    You mean that stump wasn’t left as a picnic table? I can imagine the home owners dining outside in the beautiful bay-ish area weather, after cooking a fine meal inside that lovely kitchen. Think of all the steak you can afford after you buy this delightful home for under $400,000. It’s a bargain!

    I grew up with a stove like that. Believe it or not people will pay good money for a stove like that. They’re build like tanks.

    Why, oh, why is the window above the sink boarded up? Did a garbage dump get put in next door?

    Oh man I can just smell the mold! I don’t know which turns me on more, the metal pipe out of the back of the stove (easy to put a wood stove in though) or the layer of dust on that bulby thing over the sink!

    Bring boric acid!

  7. ex-sunnyvale-renter Says:

    OK ok I’ll lay off the stove though, grew up with one with a clogged pilot light, we lit the fucker with a match in the morning, they ARE built like tanks

  8. Renter Says:

    It looks like this is also a short sale. The owner refinanced to borrow $435,478 on 6/1/2004. Smart home owner, stupid bank.

    My grandmother had a stove like that in her house. It probably doubled as a bomb shelter during the cold war era.
