Description – 354 MENDOCINO ST, Brisbane,CA,94005
This home has great “bones” in an awesome location! Needs some TLC and this could be your dream home! Features hardwood floors, granite counters in the kitchen, updated bath and dual pane windows. Attached garage w/inside access, full basement has lots of possiblities. “As-is” sale only.

Burbed is a sucker for homes that have great possibilities! There’s nothing better than buying a house which enables you to have the freedom to completely redo the house – it’s a pride of ownership thing that most renters don’t get: spending money makes you more proud.

But this house has great bones says the seller! Let’s take a look!


Wow… great bones indeed. If you just widen that up a little, you could… uh… fit the SUV that’s in the driveway. Uh… yeah.

Maybe bones wasn’t a good analogy. What analogy would you use?

    That is a super nice house, I’d pay well over a mil for it.

    reminds me of the final scene in blair witch project

    Bones is close. It’s definitely a skeleton of a house inside.

    You’re right, basically, “We stripped the flesh off this house, all so you can start fresh!”

    Great if you’re the SIZE of an SUV, you can make all the halls doorways etc “two axe-handles wide” and be really comfy, invite all your BBW/M (big beautiful man/woman) friends, for food orgies don’cha know.

    They should advertise this on bigfatblog.

    Is it (the 2nd picture) a subway tunnel being digged under house? Looks like so.

  7. RealEstater Says:

    Brisbane ain’t no San Francisco. Great bones ain’t gonna cut it.

  8. DensityDuck Says:

    My parents bought a house like that, fixed it up, now it’s worth double what they paid for it.

    Of course, their house is on two acres on the side of a mountain in Pennsylvania. But still, don’t underestimate the effects of TLC amirite?!

    Seriously, though: I think this house is one of those nominated for the “most likely to finish up as a smoking hole in the ground” award.

    I don’t care about bones, that house has terrible feng shui. The tree prevents prosperity from entering the front door. Or maybe it stops it from leaving.

    Why are you running a series of lavender houses, burbed? Are you trying to tell us something?

  10. mrbogue Says:

    i think he’s telling us we’re a bunch of panzies.

  11. Target-Addict Says:

    Good bones, no. Good veins, maybe….

    What kind of license plate does that SUV have?
