The perfect house for Valentine’s Day is in Redwood City!

Last August, this house was featured on Burbed:

This is not a motel… really? [Burbed.com]

Back then, the house was playing hard to get – by not posting it’s address. What a tease!

Well, times have changed! Let’s look at this house now:


Ah hah! Now we know it’s at 40 Laurel St! And it’s still available! And it’s 24% off!

And most importantly, it’s still pink – which makes this a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your loved ones.

What are you waiting for? Think of your spouse!!

    A spouse will like it only if he/she happens to be a pimp. Even the ad talks about “business on site”. This “pink motel” has no other use.

    Hm, live on one floor, run your little business in the other one…. wonder if you get points for looking like a cathouse and really running a crackhouse?

    A sure money maker!

    It looks like a brothel from an old western movie. Balcony out front, hard-charging dame with a heart of gold in the back.

    Doesn’t look as classy as Al Swearingen’s Gem saloon from Deadwood.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that Redwood City pioneered the acoustic gunshot localization system in 1996. Such a wonderful Burb!

    yeah but there are little sniper tricks that can be used to get around that …..

    Does it automatically toggle to an orange color for Halloween?

    Welcome to “mood housing”. Only in California….

    Laurel is actually part of the Redwood Junction – to be specific, it’s the link from westbound Woodside Road onto southbound El Camino Real. So not only is it pink, but your kids won’t be able to play outside.

    I had to LOL when I saw this house, because I used to live in RWC and recognized this pink mess of a house immediately. Love the fact that there’s a “business on site as well as a residence on second floor”. Dual usage? Residence AND business? Bonus!!

    Yes, at night they put the swingset and the leather straps and the “toys” into the closet, and the “office” turns into the “master bedroom”.

    Where’s RealEstater?
    $185,000 discount.
    Is Redwood City not the “core Bay Area”????

    “Oh, but ain’t that America….little pink houses for you and me babe..”

    John Mellencamp had this place in mind, I guess?

    […] The anonymous Burbed reader who submitted this thought I should make note of the fact this house is pink. Like Pepto Bismol pink. Pink sure is a popular color in Redwood City – I think this one is even better than the Valentine’s Day special one. […]
