No es Nada in El Grenada

Here comes a three day weekend!  So let’s travel a little further away from the US 101/I-280 Axis of Specialness, and see what’s over the mountains, through the woods, and down by the bay ocean.  Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night find.

Thanks very much to Burbed reader The Klek for this beachy little number for a quick little getaway.

imageHere’s what The Klek had to say about today’s fine listing:

Here’s a good example of some lazy work on the part of the realtor who couldn’t be bothered with turning on the lights before taking pictures and editing those same pictures to remove any duplicates.

Still, I suppose the shadows and general darkness really underline the cozy quality. The grammar of the description needs work but I like how she mentioned the local sights (all at least 1/4-mile away) confusing the reader that the house offers views of surfers curling on a wave. Views of your neighbor couch surfing is more likely.

Oh, the poor buyers, thinking they’re signing up for volleyball and shell-collecting, when this is what they’re going to be looking at every day.

And have a look at the neighborhood.  The Klek was right about how close the beach was (that is, not yet in the big picture).

imageThere is something seriously hinky going on over on Redfin when you try to look at the house on Streetview, probably because, for some reason, it’s classified as being in Half Moon Bay.  You’ll find yourself a block and a half away, and on the wrong street as well.  But Google Maps had no trouble finding it right away.

Now that we’ve found Home Sweet Home, guess it’s time to soak in the hot tub.

¡Perfecto!

    Pretty solid asking price for East Menlo Park. Must have something to do with the new Facebook campus.

    Interesting find. Certainly better looking than today’s fearsome facade. And about the same size.

    There are some things that I prefer skinny. And paying more than “not a lot of money” to be on the wrong side of right streets?

    Hurry, because this REO is not for sale anymore.
    It looks like the bank pulled it back.
    Why would they do that?

    It was pulled in the 11th when it supposedly went pending.
