Two story, with separate living quarters on second floor. Has great potential, some updating completed, needs finishing. Property is situated at rear of flag lot. Single family, zoned R2, 2828 sqft interior, 7054 sqft lot per county records, buyer to verify zoning, permits & all square footage.
Here’s what Tracy had to say about this, um, delightful domicile:
Weird flag lot
Also, if the listing figures are accurate, that means the FAR is 2000 sf/1332 sf = 1.50. I don’t know what the allowable FAR is on an R2 lot, but I suspect it’s a lot lower than that, like maybe on the order of 0.5.
Plus it’s a really patriotic house. Not only will you be rescuing the economy by purchasing it, it’s even on a flag lot!
Here’s a nice view of the house, complete with deck (CAN YOU GO ON THE DECK?) and a few dozen of the neighbor’s favorite vehicles. And I call shenanigans on this realtard. If 338 Bonita is a 7000 sf lot, that means it backs up to a trailer park full of 5000 sf manufactured tin boxes McMansions.
Also be sure to try to check this place out on Google Streetview. Dick Cheney spent millions of our tax dollars on an undisclosed location. You can have one for under $400,000!
