Zoned industrial, currently used as a single family house, not allowed to increase the living sqft. Can be used also as mixed residential/industrial. Currently considered non-conforming use and can be kept this way. City will not allow to change the industrial zoning to residential zoning.
This agent is such a defeatist! Of course the city will allow to change the industrial zoning to residential zoning. The only question is, how much will it cost to encourage them to do it? When you see what this house is near, the answer to whether it’s worth it isn’t just yes, but FOUKING HELL YES.
We’ve seen mixed residential/commercial zoning before, but this house enters a new paradigm for the Silicon Valley engineer/inventor who doesn’t want to be limited to just the garage. Take a look at all you get just on your block! Places to build things or store things or blow them up to the left, other is-this-a-house-or-a-wrecking-yard mysteries to the right. It’s a win either direction you go.
Plus, look at the neighborhood we’re talking about! It’s not often that the vehicles go so perfectly with the front yard decor.
And across the street, it gets even better! No less than Burbed’s favorite townhouse community EVER!
If Burbed were a business that actually made any money, this house would be the place we’d be headquartered. So run out and buy the place, and start your Web 3.1 empire today!
