Here’s a fantastic find from Burbed reader Petsmart Groomer for your Super Tuesday pleasure. Almost anything with a Mountain View address is going to sell in a New York minute, so imagine how Rocky Mountain High the overbidding will go with a brand new house!

Here’s why Petsmart Groomer sent this house in for some Burbed loving:
That sounds really handy. Pick up your disability check and your government cheese without needing to borrow a shopping cart from the Safeway.
And we can see from the 25 photos of the house that the inside is just loving its close-up. Wonder why the outside was so shy? Nary a shot of the house or the grounds. Let’s see if Google Streetview can help.
Looks like the Googlecam is overdue for a neighborhood spin. Fortunately, there’s a Virtual Tour available. And I do suggest you check this one out, because it has dozens and dozens of pictures not found on the listing. The Virtual Tour is not afraid to show us what the house looks like. Click on through to see those pictures and so much more!
Yup. That’s exactly what I expected for a million and a half dollars in the ‘43 (Close to Google!). And look at this one. It looks shopped. I can tell by the pixels.
Do check out the many, many extra pictures on the Tour. I’ve included my two favorite shots here. Feel free to ponder why the agent thought these could help sell the house, and just how romantic a patio sunk to coffin depth could be. Also ask yourself how this genius thinks he’s going to sell a house for double the going rate in this zip code without writing a single piece of listing copy.
But wait, there’s more! Can you say location, location, location?
UPDATE 10:30 am: Burbed reader Metalhead points out that this home’s previous listings are still available on Redfin, complete with photos. Or rather, this lot’s previous listings, as it was a very different building before this paean to New Soviet Design appeared. Just in case something terrible happens to them, here are the “better” photos for your edification.
And a few examples of what a fixer upper is:
Now I see where the architect got those amazing ideas for the current home!
