Not another one of those backwards houses! And by backwards we mean a “luxury” type McMansion that has an impressive address, but forgot to bring the school district along for the ride. Let nomadic explain:
New construction for a premium in the slums of Los Gatos!
I’m calling them out because on the “features” tab it says: “Excellent Los Gatos and San Jose Public & Private Schools.” They must be referring to private schools in Los Gatos, because the public schools (while quite good) are in the Union Elementary and Campbell Union High School districts.
Redfin has the location all wrong for these houses on the Google map, which makes me think they’re taking liberties with the lot sizes too. If you look on the map and pan down Union Avenue to just north of Leewood Court, you can see the two of them nuzzled together on the construction site.
Wow, it looks AWFUL on the satellite view – worse than the view from Union.
The better-looking but much too close companion chateau finally went Pending a couple of weeks ago. And given how lovey-dovey these two homes are, who wants to guess that the lot size of 10,500 is for both of them? (Lot size of 117 is conveniently provided in acres to make comparisons quick and easy! That’s 11,326 sf. You’re welcome.)
