And we’re done with another exciting week of properties, finishing off in the “Capital of Silicon Valley”! Today’s featured home was sent in by Burbed reader Tracy Tea House. Sit back and relax as we bring you yet another San Jose Special, after we let Zillow and Redfin duke it out over what neighborhood it’s in. Is it in West San Jose? Is it in the Campbell area? You decide!

BRAND NEW CONSTRUCTION, this “Estate Quality” home features a wonderful open floorplan and so many designer features that include a “Chef’s Kitchen w/all stainless appl incl. refrigerator, wine chiller, wet bar, walk-in pantry and more! Fully landscaped! 10′-11′ coffered ceilings, crown/baseboards, 1,200+/- sft attic w/engineered flooring and so much more! A must see! Open Sa/Su 1-4!
Here’s why Tracy sent us this house:
Look quick cause this one shows the pictures from pre-flip. They bought the house in Feb. I think tore it down, built a new house in six months and are trying to sell it for double the purchase.
Guess we didn’t have to look that quick, because Tracy sent this in 3 weeks ago, the day after it was listed. The house went pending 2 days later. It must have been a cash deal, because the sale was recorded just one week after that.
Now we could be party-poopers and show you the fancy pictures on Redfin, or we could be Burbed and revel in the cognitive dissonance between the listing copy above and these lovely photos still available on Zillow from the February listing. We are talking “Estate Quality” in every room.
Also fortunately for us, Redfin saved the pre-flip listing so we can share that description with you too!
New listing! Large 9,300 +/- SF lot. Perfect starter home or for investment! Attached 1-car garage with washer/dryer hookups. Close to Santana Row, Westfield Shopping Center, and entertainment. Close to highways 280 and 880.
Yeah. Definitely close to 280.
Bunus: Even closer to Winchester Ranch Mobile Home Park.
