The good news: This house is barely sporting a six-digit pricetag!  Plus the agent took more than one photo!

121202-first-kitchenThe bad news: Is that moss growing on the roof?

The interior photography is intriguing.  It appears this agent is doing whatever is possible to not include a single square inch of the floor in any shot, which means most of them tend to show ceiling.

Lots and lots of ceiling.  This view of the kitchen only shows a little, but for this vintage stove, plus the solo wall-mount cabinet unit, along with the distressed treatment of the door, we could not resist.

And you could not resist this price. Sure, the house has a FAR of 0.796, but what do you want for just one homeowner spending unit?

    I just love the square footage to lot size ratio! It’s a true California property. To think they were overbuilding on the lots back in 1920. Visionary.

    It’s the Russian River area, not much buildable land that doesn’t flood every year. And yes, that’s moss on the roof. People head up to the area in August and September and love how cool and refreshing it is. They don’t usually wonder why all the roofs (And sometimes all four exterior walls) are covered in moss…

    If anyone wants somewhere dark and damp to live without driving all the way up north, try some of the little valleys in the Almaden area. This time of year, it gets dark an hour earlier than in San Jose and the cold just sits there between the hills. It’s great for ducks and Hobbits.
