OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS to own this spectacular spacious one-owner executive home with stunning Bay and City views. The contemporary European design with generous functional living space provides for a relaxed and inviting ambiance. The upstairs features a living room with vaulted beam ceiling and stone fireplace, formal dining room, large kitchen with hardwood floors, ample storage and dining area.
A few years ago, I met some neighbor parents when one of my kids befriended their kids, and we got to talking about real estate. The dad was going on and on about how ridiculous it was that all he could afford was a dinky little tract house. “I am a Vice President! I should be living in an Executive Home! Not here!”
Now I never asked him what he meant by “Executive Home.” He probably meant a big, new house, on a big lot close to a golf course. He sure didn’t mean his late-50s rancher with second story addition, on a lot closer to a fifth than a quarter acre.
I wonder if today’s house would have been acceptable to him, or if it’s still too close to the (gasp) worker bees. Anyway, the guy and his family soon moved back to San Diego (where he could buy himself an Executive Home on a golf course, but then again, by 2003 so could almost anyone else). I wonder what he thinks of Occupy San Diego?
Weren’t executives, at least back in the good old days, famous for having three-martini lunches? Well, the bar’s all ready in this house! Now, which is worse, the carpet or the wallpaper?
We have plenty more photos after the break!
Oh wait, I meant THIS wallpaper. When was foil wallpaper last in vogue? Maybe 1973? Also, here’s a great view of the Real Power Lines to go with the Bay and City views. And maybe by City views they meant Foster City.
There’s too many pictures full of win to choose from. These show what happens when you take photos in full daylight instead of near sunrise or sunset.
Remember, when an agent is trying to get a share of a 6% commission on a $1.678 million dollar house, time is money! No need to dawdle with silly things like sunlight and exposures. Oh my god, is that FORMICA in the large kitchen with hardwood floors?
Thank goodness, it’s only tile. Tile produced in a FORMICA color. And some more wallpaper for you to admire, all in a relaxed and inviting ambiance, provided you felt relaxed and invited in the seventies. Or you can be uptight and standoffish. This is, after all, an Executive Home.
