Free Plums in Mountain View

Yes, we are back to Mountain View, because we cannot seem to stay away.  Every time we Google “Center of the Universe” this is what pops up.  Although if our readers would send in properties somewhere else, anywhere else, please, please, please, we are begging you, send us a house NOT in Mountain View, even not in the RBA if you have to.

Pardon us. Ahem.  Anyway… hope you like some color other than white in your house.  That is if by “some” we mean “way, way more than some.”  And by “your house” we mean “someone else’s house” because, of course, this pad is Pending!

So much to love about this house, whether it’s that it was foreclosed on this past Valentine’s Day, or that it sold for more in 2005 than the current listing price, or that the helpful Redfin agents want you know that not all appliances are present.  As in are any appliances present?

120823-morgan-backyardBut other than that, this house is indeed near move-in ready, provided you’re near ready to open up a preschool onsite (but only after you clean up the carpets).  This is some serious color coordination we’re talking.  The house was just remodeled, so the sellers decided to stick with the original 1976 paint scheme of tomato, avocado, and mustard.

Which means the plums out back are ready for you to have for dessert.  Or to paint another room.

    Despite the lack of amenities, it’s apparently located in one of the best places to live.

    wow… colors… looks like someone bought all the “oops” paint cans at home depot, and then used them all.

    “Double pane windows * Nice private backyard for entertaining and enjoyment.” a bit of conflicting info there – the double pane windows block out the sound of the freeway 200′ away. yet you’ve got a backyard made for entertaining? sure, if you don’t mind yelling at your guests for small talk. several years ago, i looked at a house a few doors away and you knew the freeway was there.

    but most of all, it’s located in the center of the universe!

    200′ is enough to turn a freeway from a roar to a continuous rushing sound. At that range it’s mostly the dust and smog you’re worried about, not the sound.

    This house is walking distance from Crittenden Middle School. Nearly 55% of students in Crittenden get free or reduced price lunches. Doesn’t that disqualify this house from being a part of the RBA?

    Anyone who thinks any house anywhere in the ’43 qualifies as Real Bay Area… oh boy do I have a house to sell YOU! But this is the Center of the Universe. It’s like the Eye of the Hurricane.

    Save “big” on this house, use the money to re-paint and put new carpet in the bedrooms. Threadbare Victorian cut velvet just doesn’t work as floor covering.

    So many plums, I can already see which room is going to be painted!

    No baiting of the “Perfect Angel”? LOL.

Please be nice. No name calling, no personal attacks, no racist stuff, no baiting, etc. Let's be nice to each other in the true Bay Area spirit! (Comments may be edited/removed without notice.)
