Here’s another delightful find from Burbed reader sonarrat, who only comments, “One of the oddest listings I’ve ever seen.” And sonarrat has certainly found us some odd ones before!

SQ. FT.: 2,776
$/SQ. FT.: $576
LOT SIZE: 4,620 Sq. Ft.

This beautifully restored Colonial Revival home in new home community combines the character of the past era while offering all the luxuries of today’s lifestyle. 2 story home plus sunroom, detached artist studio and basement/wine cellar. Gourmet kitchen with viking appliances. Large redwood deck off master overlooking wooded creek! Top Cupertino School District (Blue Hills, Miller, Lynbrook).
Odd? It’s a listing with Cupertino schools and there’s 8s in the price. That sounds downright normal! What is odd is the small lot size and all those extraneous buildings. Which ones are yours and which are merely situated really, really, really close to yours?
You know what else is odd? Upwards of a million and a half for the house and not one interior picture. Are they still restoring it? Guess they don’t want you to know, because they conveniently left the year built off the listing.
But the satellite view might give us a hint.
Heck, the $175 a month HOA fees are needed just to sweep up all that construction mess. Well, other than the unspecified townhouses or condos on the site, let’s see who the neighbors are!
Definitely a million plus view! So, is this a convenient location?
You betcha! This house is within 1000 feet of three gas stations, four shopping centers, a bus line, and the world-famous California 85 freeway, which goes directly to Google!
Now all the seller needs is the economy to do a Revival along with this Colonial. Then some lucky buyer, somewhere, will say, “Honey, do you know what I want? I want to live in a big Colonial Revival right next to a bunch of attached housing! Then they will all know that WE live in the Big House, even if it has an apartment number!”
Plantation boss lifestyle without the kudzu! What are you waiting for? Think of the fun your kids will have giving out their new street address!
