Beautiful drawing of a house, comes with huge sandbox

Here’s a find from Burbed reader Wendie, from the zip code that is singlehandedly responsible for keeping construction workers employed.


3798 LAGUNA Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94306


BATHS:  3.5
SQ. FT.:  2,783
$/SQ. FT.:  $898
LOT SIZE:  8,378 Sq. Ft.
PROPERTY TYPE:  Detached Single Family
STYLE:  Modern/High Tech
COMMUNITY:  Barron Park
COUNTY:  Santa Clara
MLS#:  81118659
STATUS:  Active
ON REDFIN: 107 days

Barron Park Style Home with Great Room overlooking back yard. New construction by Excellent Builder James Witt that has been building homes for over 40 years. Buyer may select 8 finishes. Completion date by end of September 2011.

imageHere’s what Wendie has to say about this property:

Wow, they are trying to sell a foundation!

Well, that’s not all you get, Wendie.  You can select 8 finishes, and we’re talking Excellent Builder James Witt that has been building homes for over 40 years.  So that’s 5 years per finish.

Hmmm.  So is Excellent Builder James Witt a person, place, or thing?  And if that has imagebeen building homes for over 40 years, wait, it’s homes, so at least he/it hasn’t been working on this one since 1971.

I do wonder just which is more unlikely, though, that this house is going to be ready in six weeks, or that the agent is going to update the virtual tour so we don’t conclude that Excellent Builder James Witt has done nothing but tear up the yard.

But since this Barron Park Style Home with Great Room definitely won’t be ready in time for school starting next Tuesday, you could camp out in what’s left of the back yard.  I hear there’s a Great Room overlooking it.

    Then another quick search:

    “Eden Gloria

    Awwww… it’s somebody’s First Flip! And it looks like it’s going to flop!

  3. The Gilroy Alex Says:

    That’s an awful lot of money for an RV parking space.

  4. nomadic Says:

    Who would have guessed that “Barron Park Style” = STYLE: Modern/High Tech?

  5. madhaus Says:

    Hey, it’s in Palo Alto, I don’t have to do NOTHING to this dirt, you can PAY me millions for the privilege of having a 95% unfinished project that I will abandon if I feel like it.

  6. The Gilroy Alex Says:

    The total lot is about 1/5th of an acre.

    You couldn’t pay me to live in Palo Alto.

  7. Divasm Says:

    I, however, would just like to put out there that you could pay me to live in Palo Alto. I would happily accept 2.5 million to live in Palo Alto. I would stipulate, however, that it be in an actual house, but on the virtual tour site it says this is supposed to be done in August, so it must be so!

  8. nomadic Says:

    It must be so! Too bad the realtard can’t be bothered to update the photos for his measly $75,000 commission. (Yeah, so he probably “only” gets half of that with his broker split. So?)

  9. SEA Says:

    Good project for an ‘Entry-Level Architect.’ We all know that income does not matter.

  10. Sunny(vale) Kim Says:

    Value is in the land. Land = dirt + sand.

    Looks like the listing taken off already. Probably overbidding took where price needs to be. Talk about value (I mean dirt and sand).

    I think we need some sort of badge for property listings yanked the day they’re featured here. How about Burbed & Perturbed?
