Today’s prestigious property was sent in by Burbed reader Tracy. You know that saying about shutting the barn door after the horses run away? These barn doors are wide open, and the barnyard is large. Deep, too. Come to Peacock Canyon, and breathe in the fresh air.

$/SQ. FT.: $229

PROPERTY TYPE: Detached Single Family

YEAR BUILT: 1900

Historic ALum Rock Stables is ready for a new start. 12 stall horse stable as well as level lot that could be used for a home or possibly an arena. Gourgeous views of Peacock Canyon and access to the Alum Rock Regional Park make this an ideal location for the horseman or naturist.
I have fantasized about this place, many times when it has been on the market. It looks to be located midway down a landslide, but that might just be me. The view is amazing, and the price seems right, but it is a crap shack, so qualifies for the burbed treatment.
And go over to the Redfin listing to check out the pictures, because this is another one of those homes for visually organized people where every room is painted a different very bright primary color. Maybe the FBs were running a daycare along with the horse business.
Given how old the structures are, these are in surprising good shape! They were built in the 19th Century, yet modernization was allowed to happen. Look, they even installed indoor plumbing!
Now if you really want some cognitive dissonance with your morning coffee, check out Zillow’s price history:
You let those horses out of the barn, and the barn is now worth less than it was 21 years ago. Then again, Zillow has a completely different set of pictures for the property, so that could explain the discrepancy. Also a different address. Maybe these are competing Alum Rock Stables properties.
Well, one address or the other is an ideal location for the horseman or naturist. I just wonder if the Realtard who wrote this copy knows what a naturist is.
Update 12:15 pm: The Redfin link above is now bouncing to 11125 Canon Vista Ave, with 2006 information. And different pictures since that’s a previous listing. It also says that property is pending as of today. Head over to Trulia to see the above pictures and copy, while you can.
