Highly desirable Mountain View area within a couple of blocks of downtown with bountiful of good restaurants. Commerical residential zone. This site can be either one. Fixer upper. Could be a builder/investor’s dream place. Property to be sold in “as is condition”. Lots of potential!!! Easy access to highway 85 and freeway 101.
Don’t let this gem slip away into pending status before you can post it. This is the hot new/old recycled listing from our past – twice – see the olde but goode listings on Burbed.
This crapshack wouldn’t take “no” for an answer a few years ago, so they raised the price $10k trying to win the housing (Facebook) lottery again. I guess they think the kids with new Facebook money will jump all over this place as a diamond in the rough (note to realtor: don’t hold yer breath).
This time, instead of sharing multi photos of Moffett Blvd, they’re just showing us the outside of the lil’ darling in a multi-use neighborhood. (Check out the satellite photo)
This entry must be Burbed-worthy, especially the 3rd time around. It looks like they’ve really spiffied-up the yard in the years since entry #1 graced yer lovely website; they must have raked the leaves at least once in the last 6 yrs.
Based on these front yard pix, i assume there’s a good sized corn mash still tucked away in the backyard. It’s like re-visiting my childhood trips thru Appalachia; and it’s right here in mountain view, but without the nauseating drive through the mountains in the back end suicide seats of a station wagon!
And I didn’t even include the actual trauma of being IN Appalachia for summers w/my dad’s family! That the old station wagon was probably circa 1965 with those back end suicide seats – no seat belts, who needs ‘em!?! One good bump and all the kids would have been projectiles out the back window, which was already rolled down and sucking in additional exhaust fumes (no AC back in the dark ages). If you’re not old enough to remember ‘em, you missed an era.
