No expense was spared in creating this custome Moss Beach masterpiece

What with all the server problems this past weekend, maybe it’s time to step out for an early getaway this week.  Fortunately, Burbed reader The Klek has a destination in mind.

imageYes, I’m linking to Trulia instead of Redfin this time because Trulia was kind enough to save the photos despite the listing going off market.

Here’s what The Klek has to say about the property:

Maybe you can help me solve the mystery of 2010 Vallemar in Moss Beach).

imageThe house never had a for sale sign but you couldn’t miss the $4.8 million price tag which is, uh, shockingly high for the area and the house isn’t even gold plated! The realtard still has the house listed as active but SFBlockshopper said it was recently delisted. Was this one of those vanity listings where the owner smugly laughs at all the people with distant dreams of upscale homeownership? And how was this property ever accessed at that value? Or is that property actually a quantum bubble of the RBA, circa 2007??


Here’s the listing copy from the agent site:

Enjoy the best of ocean front living from the newest construction on the San Mateo Coastline.  Located on a wide double lot of over 12,000 sq. ft. with durable materials, exciting architecture and spacious rooms, no expense was spared in creating this masterpiece while subtly blending with the environment.  Understated from the street and shielded with beautiful courtyard walls, maximum attention has been given to creating a sheltered water front experience.

Smooth alder cabinets with cherry finish and Travertine -Tuscani Procini flooring are in all rooms except bedrooms.  Brazilian white bay granite enhances the kitchen counters and fireplace surrounds.  Sub-Zero, Bosch, Fisher/Pakel and Frank brands adorn the kitchen.  Hand blown custome light fixtures by Doug Brown.

The separate guest room with kitchenette also enjoys a private patio overlooking the ocean, and has direct access to the main house.  The primary master suite is on the main floor, while the guest master suite and additional bedroom are on the second floor.  Hardi-Plank siding and steel trowel smooth stucco grace the exterior.  Copper gutters, downspouts, flashings, vents and outside lights insure years of care free maintenance.  Double pane low-E glass windows, trex decking and a Hot Springs Spa add to the joy of ocean life.

It’s hard work building spec houses, let alone financing them!  Do you have any idea how much that HDR photography cost, not to mention having to wait for the one day in June that the sun came out?

Now check out what used to be in this location, location, location!


Be sure to snag this copper-guttered beach cottage, a 2010 winner at a 2006 price!

    Trulia allows comments, kind of like Redfin. There’s an interesting one for this property:

    What???? Not on market past 50 years??? Established well????

    THis property has been on and off the market at least for the past 2 years. Last year, one well was dug >1100 feet but was apparently unable to meet county flow requirements. A 2nd well was dug and abandoned. Is the listing agent aware of the history of this property?????

    The property was last sold in 2006 for $1.625M – before the new construction. Ouch.

  2. SEA Says:

    An easy flip: Buy for $5M, drill a well, and sell for $10M right away. It’s really as easy as ABC.

    Having an interest in art glass, I had to look up who Doug Brown is. He blows at Half Moon Bay Art Glass on the weekends, but he’s also a “reverse mortgage specialist” and loan advisor. He’s on LinkedIn if you want the gory details.

  4. gallileo Says:

    Wouldn’t one just use Draino to drill that well?

    And use a light bulbs to plug the failed one.

  5. Divasm Says:

    Did you see the final pic? I think it’s supposed to be one of the 4 bedrooms, but I think it’s more like a .5 bedroom…it’s a closet with a bed in it.

    Is all of the square footage in that great kitchen/living/dining room combo? With all that marble I bet the acoustics are great in that room during a party!

    But, it IS in San Mateo County and right on the beach, so clearly it’s worth the $4.8mil.

  6. The Gilroy Alex Says:

    It’s expensive because it’s Custome. Add an “e” to the end of every word you can, it adds up quick. This is why you see overpriced crapboxes with names incorporating pseudo-words like “pointe”.

    Oh you think it’s worth the $4.8 million, Divasm? I found something else interesting on Trulia:
