Charming, updated home in Monta Loma. Close to Downtown Mountain View, Palo Alto & Google. Light filled living room with hardwood floors and fire place. Spacious updated kithen with view of back yard and open to the dinning area. Beautifully landscaped yard with pavers, great for entertaining. Master bedroom with hardwood floors, updated bath and the view of the back yard. Just move in and enjoy.

120625-thompson-kitchenYipppee!  Another entry from Monta Loma.  Don’t know where that is???  Here’s all you need to know:   Close to Palo Alto, Google and other companies.

F@#k Mountain View!  This house is sooooo close to the land of your dreams:  Utopia, fairies & unicorns.  And it comes with a free choo-choo just yards away.  And by ‘yards’ I mean a mere 4 houses or about 200′.   Wait a sec, my math is off…  First you have to hop over Central Expressway (not so expressy at 8:00am or 5:00pm, tho), then you get your choo-choo.
 
Please allow me to translate realtor-speak “Beautifully landscaped yard with pavers, great for entertainment = There’s not one f@#king blade of grass.  Just what every family with kids or pets desires – warm, inviting bricks to play on.  Better stock up on band aids for the skinned knees, and plastic glassware when you entertain on your new, cold, hard reality  (tho, it’ll be about 110* in the summer on that heat sink).
 
120625-thompson-backyard-2 “… and the view of the back yard.”  Nothing is more comforting than staring out a window at an expanse of pavers.  Why not just move into a condo?  You’d have numerous options to select from in Utopia Palo Alto.  Well… there must be at least a couple PA condo options for $819k.
 
I don’t have time for a full rant about “updated bath other than:  Two bathrooms, two pedestal sinks…  I can hear the ghosts of Christmas past yelling “Great!  Where’s the f@#king extra roll of toilet paper???”
 
All this for not so much money in the RBA.  Wait…  is Mountain View even in the RBA anymore?  According to this realtor, not so much.  F@#k Mountain View, all you Googlers who really want to live in PA!

    “and the view of the back yard.”

    How large is that back yard?

  3. SEA Says:

    To help your measuring: 152 Thompson Ave

    the realtor changed the copy a bit – it originally had that first quote ‘close to pa, google and other co’s’. maybe the ghosts of MTV past complained so she added the reference to downtown MTV; as if anyone looking for utopia would bother with downtown MTV.

    usually references to a “view” mean taht the view is spectacular. in this case, Special. as if any house with windows doesn’t have a view? of something???

  5. CB Says:

    I’m going to actually applaud the Realtor(TM) for a pretty good presentation of this house. It looks much larger than 1280 sq ft. It’s staged well, the photography is good and the copy is indicative of a junior high education or higher.

    I went to the open house and this is a perfectly nice house in a great neighborhood, near a park. It’s priced reasonably and it went pending in about 3 days. Is this really the worst you have to complain about Burbed?

    I don’t think you can cross Central at Thompson. I’d give this place a worse walkable score than my place in the hills – it’s just as far to a store, but not through the redwoods.
