Here’s what nomadic had to say about this house:
I was checking out the most expensive houses in Willow Glen, wondering "who in their right mind would spend $2.5M to live there?" Then I found this house. This house has a seven car tandem garage. It is two cars wide. Check out the satellite view. A house perfect for the car collector who doesn’t like to enjoy their cars and just keeps them in the garage all of the time.
Okay, check out the satellite view we shall!
Looks like the garage is the same size as the entire house. Somebody had their priorities straight. And I must say, a seven car tandem garage is pretty amusing, especially because the agent called it a “7 tandem car garage.” Plus it’s got granite, both inside and outside, so you can have that bubbly mid-oughties feel. But there’s a bonus in today’s feature, one I am very excited about. I am so delighted because I get to break out the red arrows again!
Look, everyone, it’s the return of the MAWBUL KAWLUM. Even in this master bedroom picture, there are all kinds of KAWLUM-like objects.
And the rooms that spared themselves KAWLUMnosity are almost as silly. Like the dining room where the swag matches the built-in cabinets and the picture frame.
Or the wine cellar. Nothing says grapes aged to perfection like halogen track lighting and both walls and ceiling painted to match Campbell’s Cream of Tomato Soup.
And what is that in the backyard at the right rear? Looks like the covered wagon was left in place, to remind them of their pioneer roots. And they value their history so deeply they’d leave that hayseed dispenser on the grounds despite destroying the entire house and erecting this neo-Tudor with a bunch of fourdoors in the tandem garage. There’s just the littlest hint of that 7 car garage in the upper left, showing how far they’ve come from horse-drawn farm vehicles.
Update: nomadic found the link to the virtual tour, so enjoy the 7 tandem car garage!
