Another great find from Burbed reader sonarrat! I tell you, if it weren’t for sonarrat you’d be reading about Sunnyvale every single day! This house was sent in because, “I had no idea this neighborhood was so hot. Is it because of the easy access to bail bonds?”

MOTIVATED SELLER. NESTED IN A TRULY MAGNIFICENT & ELEGANT VENDOME NEIGHBORHOOD. DTWN JEWEL. A RARE FIND. FORMAL ENTRY, SEPRATE D/ROOM, GRACIOUS L/ROOM W/ FIREPLACE, BEAUTIFUL STAIRCASE, FRENCH DOORS & WINDS, HARDWOOD FLOORS, CROWN MOLDING, BASE BOARDING PARTIAL BASEMENT, CONVENIENTLY LOCATED NEAR LIGHT RAIL, JAPAN TOWN, SHOPPING & EASY ACCESS TO FREEWAYS & MAJOR STREETS.
I went through every one of these pictures and there are no FRENCH WINDS anywhere. I’d even accept ENGLISH WINDS or WOOD WINDS. Just no BREAK WINDS, though.
But maybe this place is worth it for the classic console television, If they throw that in, then it really would be A RARE FIND.
And if it is indeed a DTWN JEWEL then you’d have to worry about being arrested for STEALING it at this low, low price. Fortunately, sonarrat helpfully informed us about the easy access to bail bonds services.
Right. Looks like there are a number of fine agencies competing for our business!
Competition is a wonderful thing, but I am wondering if this TRULY MAGNIFICENT & ELEGANT VENDOME NEIGHBORHOOD has some basic niceties beyond having ten different bail bonds offices within two minutes’ drive.
On the plus side, with this LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, you could rent out some extra bedrooms and bathrooms), plus that PARTIAL BASE MENT, to the city or county as an Overflow Jail Annex. Your “guests” will appreciate how quickly the bail reps can show up! The police will give you concierge service knowing some perp they bust is more likely to stay busted, thanks to your innovative inmate solution. The neighborhood louts will steer clear of the serious muscle inside. And you’ll appreciate knowing this house is making money for you every single day.
