This warm and elegant home is a rare find. Nestled in the heart of the Hidden Lake Villages in Milpitas, this remarkable home features include: newly painted interior, ceiling fans, 2-car garage w/add’l storage units, Air Conditioning, Upgraded tile floors, bay windows, and MUCH MORE!

These days you really don’t know when or where the terrorists will strike. Now, granted this is already in Hidden Lake Villages, which makes it harder to find, sometimes you need to do more. And that’s why this house comes with camouflage! Hah!

Try finding the kitchen to blow up now, you dastardly terrorists!

Try finding the bedroom where the innocent daughter sleeps – foiled again terrorists!

Note that this listing slyly hints that there is much more, but it never actually says what that is. There’s also the fact that there are no interior photos. I’m sure you can appreciate the sensitive nature of this listing.

Good luck dropping by to see this house – you might never actually find it!

    Located in Milpitas the armpit of the bay area, this one is still over $380/sq ft. No thank you, even with the ‘MUCH MORE’. The terrorists can have it.

    Someone went a little hog-wild with the Swedish exterior treatment. How 70errific.

  3. Hellboy Says:

    I was thinking German or Dutch, but Swedish works too. I wonder can they throw in a couple of cows for free?

    I’m just imagining the the Swiss Miss or St. Pauli girls waving from the windows.Perhaps the roof has one of those big Ricolah horns and a yodeler to warn you of impending aerial attacks.

    It needs a little windmill on top for it to look like the picture on Svenhard’s danishes.

    There are a few interior pictures now so you can see what your barracks will look like.

    What is a Tudor house doing on Michigan Road? I would expect a little hunting lodge or something at the “hidden lake.” One thing it isn’t hidden from is the freightyard, there’s some heavy duty tracks just a couple of blocks away. And did any of you catch another clever way to foil the terrorists?

    It’s a “duet” home. That means half of it belongs to another victim. The terrorists can waste time trying to kidnap the neighbor’s innocent child instead of yours! It’s hard to see this because the photographer overexposed the neighbor’s garage door on the right, making it look like a retaining wall. Either that was very skillfully done or the shooter’s a bozo who didn’t set the white balance.

    Movoto has this house delisted already, but it’s still on redfin.

    nahhh, that’s the hunting lodge for the “hidden swimming pool”. you can shoot BB gun at those who swim naked.

    Tudors in Michigan… it was a very popular style for 1920′s & 1930′s auto barons to build their homes. A la Meadowbrook Hall: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meadowbrook_Hall

    Also a very popular style for the McMansions of the 1980s.

    Hey! How did that neigborhood escape a street named “Huron?” They have the other four Great Lakes in there… Maybe they forgot the mnemic to remember them all (HOMES). Heh – accidental pun!

  11. madhaus Says:

    nomadic, you have discovered the HIDDEN LAKE. Congratulations!

    Unfortunately, you cannot be allowed to leave knowing this information. You’re about to discover what else is HIDDEN in that LAKE.

  12. nomadic Says:

    psst – I think “Jennifer” is in the lake. That’s the odd street name that took Huron’s place. AHHHH! The terrorists got her!

    But just in case, I’ll get my cement shoes ready. LOL

    This house is next to mine (we rent our half for $2k a month). It’s been on the market for almost 6 months. It definitely hasn’t been sold.

    Hidden Lake Village is almost entirely for sale (at least 1 out of 3 are for sale — drive through it if you don’t believe me. They’re all the same cookie cutter duet style places. They’re not “bad”, but they sure as hell aren’t worth half a million.

    “Rare find” indeed — as long as you ignore the other 5 2/2.5 duets in the same subdivision that are for sale for pretty much the exact same price.
