Three bedrooms, two bathrooms upstairs with an in-law unit down (not warranted). Remodeled kitchen. Updated bathrooms. Beautiful city views. Two car side by side garage. Quiet cul-de-sac location.

120614-clayton-viewWe didn’t even know that there was more than one Blossom Valley, let alone a Blossom Valley with City Lights views.  And there are indeed City Lights views in the first picture, thanks to the glare off the car in the driveway. 

Wonder why the listing copy isn’t screaming “Views! Views! Views!”  Because this one ought to be adding another $150K to the asking price.

And we meant it about the big lot.  Take a look!

And check out the listing history!  This house could be the basis of its own soap opera.

Finally, it’s about time we ran another pink house in honor of our founder’s taste in paint.

    no comments? maybe this one is so Special that no one has anything negative to say?

    naw…

    the backyard is lacking in, uhm, backyardiness. it’s a steep slope down the the neighbors’ homes; check out the pic with the ‘beautiful city views’. i suppose that is a great view if you like lording over the neighbors. zoom in on the satellite pic and you can see a fence line or patio line very close to the house, so the usable land is minimal. might be good for teaching the tots about gravity; show them what happens when you put a bowling ball on the edge of the patio.

    the zestimate is $461k and most of the surrounding houses are in the low 400s. $550k is a stretch for one of those stacked, domino houses. but this one is Special.

    mabeldu,

    I do have comments, but typing it up only to see it censored due to difference of opinion or personal bias isn’t worth it for me.

    #2, when you stop attacking other people there will be no need to edit your comments. When you demonstrate you can comment without doing so, there will be no need to send all your posts to the moderation queue.

    That is, you can be done with time-out when you feel like behaving. Have a great weekend.

    Once I did business with someone living in a house in this development. It is a bit awkward to reach, but not that bad. The houses are small and hard to expand with zoning rules, and yet rather livable and also flexible because of the big first floor garage and open areas up top. Not too bad, but not all that great, and overpriced because of views and distance to San Francisco.

    Madhaus, Thank you for the work you put in here. I’m sure I’m not the only Broker or Agent who comes here for inspiration. I get extremely valuable tips on RLTR SPK I can find nowhere else.
