Great opportunity in Mountain View. Blocks from Google and in the path of progress. This is an older two bed one bath home on a huge lot, perfect for a family who wants property or for a developer. New construction coming two parcels away.
Here’s what sonarrat had to say about this house:
We have a new Burbed classic in the making. This one’s in the path of progress! Why, you ask? They’re building a stairway to Google!
That’s even better than an overplayed Led Zeppelin hit, because it won’t hurt your ears and it costs nothing to look.
At least it has electricity!
Now, check out the neighborhood. I’m not sure which parcel has the new construction coming, but there sure seems to be a number of multifamily units quite nearby. You’ll have so many more neighbors to socialize with, or at least so many more cars blocking your driveway.
Actually I think I might have found it, at least I found a bulldozer.
It sure would be a shame to lose that terrific vehicle collection. Maybe they could put them in that nice parking lot next door.
But this house has something even better going for it than the bridge they’re building to Google. Look what you have in easy walking distance.
Yes, if you ever get tired of this house, just remember, you could be living here!
