    Looks more like a win for the prior owners who gained 4.5% per year on this burned out hulk, in spite of the bubble bursting. They bought it for $355k in 2002.

    I wish the new owners luck; they’re going to need it.

    What they need is 25 gallons of gasoline and a matchbook. And really good fire insurance.

    Are we getting more of these “Behind the Housing Music” where are they nows this week? If so, I’m pretty excited!

    Also, some “chasing the high-high-high end market down” fun for everyone. 3.4 million reduced to 2.6 million. IN REDWOOD CITY!

    #4, oh that would make a great featured house. Love the price history. And wtf, Emerald Hills, CA 94062? Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha that house is in Redwood City!

    “2 Jack & Jill bedrooms”

    I’m guessing two sets, but a $2M+ home with four of the six bedrooms Jack & Jill style? WTF! For $2M+ who thought that’d be a good idea?

    Frank Lloyd Wright could teach these people a thing or two on how to build proper homes.

    I know; I know–the value is in the land…

    CRAZY!

  7. nomadic Says:

    who thought that’d be a good idea?

    LDS (Mormons) & Catholics – lots of kids!

    Seems weird though; with all of those Jack & Jill’s and six bathrooms, it doesn’t balance out.

  8. madhaus Says:

    Hey, I am still trying to figure out why The Brady Bunch was ostensibly a show about Mike the Architect, who designed the house the show took place in, and the house had 3 boys in one room, 3 girls in another, and the six of them shared one bathroom between those two rooms.

    Remember, these folks were wealthy enough to afford a full-time housekeeper. Fookin’ insane.

  9. nomadic Says:

    That’s because he was pressured to stay in the closet and he wanted to subject the kids to a similar feeling, being crammed into two rooms.
    ;-)

  10. madhaus Says:

    The girls’ room in particular was crammed, featuring three beds taking up just about every square foot of their room, plus ONE half-sized desk. The boys’ room appeared to have some elbow room due to the must-keep-boys-from-ever-sleeping-together-in-same-bed solution of a bunked set, so the footprint of two beds instead of three. I also suspect their room (well it was all a set) was larger.

    You forgot to work in how the actor playing Greg Brady asked the actress playing his mom Carol on a “date,” so we not only have a life of hopeless desperation but also Oedipus as a curly-haired teen. (She accepted, btw, but I doubt she saw it as anything other than let’s have coffee.)

    What the HELL is that growing under the …. eaves?

    Those are endangered condor’s nests. They only live where it’s Special, that’s why they’re endangered.
