Cupertino school don’t impress anybody these days – how about you buy your own canyon instead? After all, which of your friends can claim they live at address 0 of famed zip 95014 (to be fair, the real address is 11041)? Which of them managed to squeeze horse stables (seating 40), a personal religious retreat and a residential care facility, all on their own property?

True, these and the 10,000 SQ FT MAIN HOME W/SEPARATE RESIDENCE may only be fantasy drawings (also known as Engineering Plans), but what matters in the Silicon Valley anyway is unleashing Potential, enabling Creativity, and planting palm trees in Woodside – not maintaining some historical monstrosity that nobody will let you tear down!

Buy this canyon, but most of all don’t forget to build a garage in there – where you will start the next Hot Startup, Fresh Out of Cupertino (‘s Depths)!

    Too bad it doesn’t say what the Real Acreage of this lot is. I would guess that less than half is usable land.

  2. Alex Says:

    This isn’t a bad deal for gangsters or mobsters. Just imagine the number of bodies you can bury in a canyon.

  3. Petsmart groomer Says:

    Can we at least have a Real™ link to Redfin in the future?

    The asking price used to be $2.5M.

    What’s the catch? It looks like a nice place to build a house.

  4. nomadic Says:

    Redfin says the listing started at $450k in February – odd. The problem is that you probably have to learn to play the banjo to live there and the neighbors will think you have a purty mouth. Actually it isn’t that bad because this place seems to be on the fringe of where the houses end before the reservoir.

  5. Petsmart groomer Says:

    The first listing was probably for the parcel on the right as it showed 0.73 acre as the lot size.

    Looks like a perfect place for bob and his banjo.

  6. SEA Says:

    Cannot afford $2.2M for all 20 acres? We have a deal for you! How about 3/4 of one acre for $450,000?

    I was going to buy this property but I’ve changed my mind. Too bad, it has Real Cupertino Skoolz, too. I am a little bummed the address isn’t actually zero, but at least 11041 has a zero in it. Best of all, that 4 ensures I won’t be outbit by Asians with suitcases full of cash on the sidelines.

    The listing on redfin says:

    Lot Information

    * Many Trees
    * No Fencing
    * Horse Property
    * Parcel Number: 342-19-003

    All those possibile uses for this property… religious retreat, horse stables, wine growing. Well there should be plenty of parking on this place.

    So, I wanted to build a salle, but it says “No Fencing.” What? 20 acres and they decided I can’t fence on any of them? What the hell am I supposed to do with my epee collection? Screw this, I’m going home. At least in Sunnyvale there wasn’t anything in the CC&Rs that said I couldn’t fence on my own damned property.

  8. DreamT Says:

    madhaus – no fancying either!

  9. madEstater Says:

    SEA, oy, what a deal for $450K!

    And this is great, it’s in a different school district than the big lot! I wonder, can I fence on this parcel if I buy it and not the other two?

    Lot Information

    Nope.

    No fencing – do you suppose you can’t practice kendo either? Or maybe the “4″ in the address covers that question…
