Located in Cupertino school district this never occupied Mediterranean home in the heart of Silicon Valley has the added benefit of Santa Clara’s historic low utility costs. Easy access to shopping and freeways and quality craftsmanship with high end materials. The gourmet kitchen has granite counters, custom cabinetry and stainless appliances as well as a two car garage and AC.

Thanks to Burbed reader Herve for this find!

Wow! Will the innovation never stop in Silicon Valley? A gourmet kitchen with a 2 car garage and AC! What will the dreamers of the Valley think of next?

And what’s this… Santa Clara’s historic low utility costs? Fantastic! Fortunately the past is a strong predictor of the future!

It’s a shame that this unit next door doesn’t have these benefits:

  1. paul Says:

    why is property type single family detatched?

  2. nomadic Says:

    is that a trick question, paul? ;-) It’s because a realtard clicked the wrong box. After 160 days you’d think someone would have had her fix it by now, or maybe she figures it’s better to show up on the SFH search results even though anyone could see it’s a mistake.

  3. madhaus Says:

    IIRC this infill development had 10 or 12 townhouses and 2 freestanding houses. Take a look at the map to see the EZ Freeway Access, this place is conveniently half a block off Stevens Creek, close to (very close) Lawrence Expressway and I-280.

    But just steps away from Barefoot Coffee! In fact, you’re surrounded by shopping centers!

    Also, despite 2010 completion date, these places took years to finish. I assume the financing collapsed.

  4. SEA Says:

    I checked the official manual. If the kitchen has a two car garage, it’s considered “single family detached.”

  5. ES Says:

    realtard I know sold one of these things for just under $1M sight unseen to a Chinese businessman as long as the school was “Cupertino.” Wait till he finds out it’s actually Cupertino high and not the famous “Cupertino schools” which are, strangely enough, Lynbrook, Monta Vista, Saratoga, Gunn, Palo Alto and Los Gatos high.

    I heard stories during the peak of the peak that there were far flung parts of the extended bay area where developers were choosing names like “Monta Vista Gardens” or “Cupertino Square” for their townhouse developments just because these Chinese dudes would buy anything with “Cupertino” in it.

  6. Alex Says:

    Buy now or be priced out forever!

    Save $35 bucks a month on utility and apply it towards your mortgage. Think of how many times a month you won’t have to eat ramen noodles or PB&J sandwiches with that saving.

    But if you don’t break that perpetual ramen and PB&J sandwich diet and accumulate those monthly $35 savings, you might even be able to treat yourself to a redhead-Asian sandwich once in a while!

    WIN-WIN!!

    I laughed out loud when I saw the title: “Condo living in Santa Clara for under a million”. WTF is so special about Santa Clara? WTF is so special about a condo? And we should rush to buy this because it’s just under a $1M? ahhaahahahahhahahahahaha this isn’t the RBA! Needs at least 50% off the wish price to be worth considering. Bubble listing prices still in effect in the wannabe RBA.

  8. DreamT Says:

    “WTF is so special about a condo?”

    The original listing says it all: it has lush Berber carpet.

  9. CB Says:

    I think it’s disgraceful that SC has the lowest utility costs. It’s a travesty for publicly managed entities in the Bay Area. There should be a law making them the second highest in the nation.

  10. DreamT Says:

    law-based price fixing? Lenin would approve

  11. CB Says:

    So would Muni and San Carlos fire.

  12. sfbubblebuyer Says:

    The original listing says it all: it has lush Berber carpet.

    If they had lush Bieber carpet, they’d get 2 million easy!

  13. madhaus Says:

    #8, lush Berber carpets? How about rich, Corinthian leather? Huh? Huh?

  14. The Gilroy Alex Says:

    Haha Chinese paying cash …. a friend is apparently selling his house in Irvine for just under a cool mil, cash, to some Chinese dude buying it as a graduation gift for his daughter who just graduated from UCI. When, Oh when, is this whole sad show going to crash and get it over with? – I hope just after my friend gets his money anyway. (And since when is being Asian and graduating from UCI an accomplishment? If you’re white, you’re not even getting in even if you have an Stephen Hawking IQ, unless you’re good at a sport they need you for. UCI’s a school that doesn’t grade on a curve, they use a sodium filter, yellow, get it?)

    This horrible offering today is just part of the many “coral reefs” I’ve seen growing over the last few years in the Valley. I don’t get it, RE’s crashing, yet they’re frantically filling what were rather nice vacant space with these …. things. Right near the railroad tracks! Right down from the Kit Kat Club. Right next to the intersection of 85 and CalTrain! I can’t imagine living in one of these things any more than I could imagine living in Irvine, without being paid to.

    The highest sale price for a condo/townhouse in the City of Cupertino in April was $830K. The highest original list price for a condo/townhouse in the City of Santa Clara in April was $688K. Usually buying the most expensive place in the neighborhood doesn’t work out well.

    Nonetheless, apparently 67 Cabot sold for $950K a few weeks ago:

    http://www.redfin.com/CA/Santa-Clara/67-Cabot-Ave-95051/home/2125906

    47 Cabot is down from a listing at $1.05M.

    Probably cheap construction quality like many developments planned during the boom.

  16. Real Estater Says:

    >>WTF is so special about Santa Clara?

    Because you can get a luxury place like this for under a million?

  17. Real Estater Says:

    >>I don’t get it, RE’s crashing, yet they’re frantically filling what were rather nice vacant space with these …. things.

    Because they are not making any more land. Where else are they going to build in Santa Clara County?

  18. SEA Says:

    Yup, they are building more homes on no more land.

  19. The Gilroy Alex Says:

    #15 I can’t believe it. These things are horrible. They’re cell blocks. I’d rather live in an old wreck of a place and poop in a bucket … oh, wait a minute…

  20. madhaus Says:

    >>WTF is so special about Santa Clara?

    Because you can get a luxury place like this for under a million?

    You misspelled “yuck, sorry place.”

  21. nomadic Says:

    But madhaus, when you live in a hundred-year-old crapbox in Palo Alto that hasn’t been maintained with anything more than light bulbs and Drano, that condo is luxurious!

  22. Petsmart groomer Says:

    Sold for $838K.

  23. madhaus Says:

    And it only took two years.

  24. SEA Says:

    December 2010 to November 2011 is two madhaus years?

  25. nomadic Says:

    Yes, SEA. Turns out she’s only 20 too!

    Hey, this condo is one that spies on the other house we commented on today.

  26. madhaus Says:

    But still older than that wild and crazy socialist, Greg Fielding.
