Wow… if I had this house, I would so totally cross that bridge every day. I mean, how cool is it! You start on one side, and then you end up on another side. A totally different side. It’s like a bridge to the jungle in one direction, but a bridge to the future in the other.

I bet you could charge for admission and get a second source of income out of this. California Adventure anyone?

    Makes me wonder if something bad happens to that two-tier yard when it rains.

    Isn’t this a repeat? I swear I’ve seen this house and bridge to nowhere before…

    That bridge, and the other stuff on the lawn, look like they were left there by a flood. You sure someone didn’t Photoshop out the water line on the house?

  4. DensityDuck Says:

    I like how the whole thing leans to one side. You can tell that they just bought a prefab bridge from Home Depot or Lowe’s and stuck it out there.

    I mean, the thing is that a “footbridge” can look nice–if you put a lot of other expensive landscaping around it, and spend a lot of money tending it. You can’t just throw something out there and expect it to look good all by itself.

    There’s probably trolls under that bridge.

    Must belong to a Japanese.

    The small house goes hand-in-hand with this, a Japanese garden at the back yard.

  7. RoxBoy Says:

    I don’t like it. What if I fell off the bridge and drowned since I cant swim?

  8. Jim D Says:

    Never has much ugly been quite so expensive.

  9. Pralay Says:

    Windows are nailed with plywoods. Looks like a bank-owned property which was deserted long time back.

    Oh my god, I have visited people who live on that block of Lois Avenue, just five years ago. When did it become the backdrop for Bill Clinton’s 1996 campaign? And who stole the plastic flamingo that goes with that bridge?

    […] its best moments play out in the comments.  Maybe it’s like Burbed though, where it’s that much funnier if you live in the Bay […]

    I can’t tell if that’s a back yard or a front yard. That opening on the right looks like a garage door but it’s hard to tell. Maybe the “spa with wood deck” is really the bridge?

    Hey, according to redfin this property has had a “HUGE PRICE REDUCTION” and is now only $750,000. RealEstater, act now before the Spring bounce! Getcher instant equity right here! They’re never going to make more land like this lot.

    Plus, it’s open tomorrow afternoon! Don’t you feel the specialness?
