Nothing says Millbrae pride like a house with parking.

Now, I know that real estate in the Valley doesn’t have to follow any rules – in fact, we’re outright encouraged to break the rules!

So I think this house excels in breaking the rules of physics. Just how do you fit 3 cars in a garage like that? Shouldn’t it be an even number?

Or, maybe this reflects some new origami practice? Or car elevator! oooh! The mind boggles!

By the way, they’re not kidding about the shed in the back being large:

What a green, green, lawn!

    Could be tandem. 2 wide in front, 1 wide in back. And to get a car out of the back you move one of the cars in front. Practically speaking, the back bay would be used for storage, bicycles, workbench etc; the kind of stuff that you would put in a basement, if houses here had basements. I would love this kind of setup.

    Judging from the aerial shot, there must be a garage addition just to the right of the original garage. Though that doesn’t technically violate the laws of physics, the violation of aesthetic principle on display is even more mind-blowing.

    “Sq. Ft.: 1,570
    Lot Size: 9,300 Sq. Ft.”

    Approximately 80% of the lot is covered by a roof, yet only 17% is living space.

    Just a bad photo from the real estate agent. Google maps Street View shows the third garage door is to the right of the 2-car garage door.

    Sold for $1.044 million in 2005! This place must be worth at least $1.7M by now! What a DEAL!

  6. SEA Says:

    Listed for over $1M and “Lender Approval Required/Short Sale.”

    Is that a garage conversion with another conversion built on the back of it?

    This property sucks.

    For not a whole lot of money more, I can buy a little shack in Palo Alto for $1.5 M and claim the same zip code as the now defunct Steve Jobs.
