130213-eastbrook-frontWe’ll leave it as an exercise to the reader to find out why Zillow led with the cabinet picture instead of the front of the house.  Now let’s check in with Dibber:

Or maybe it never left?  Winchester Mystery House, Los Altos Hills campus.   Check out the listing history.  Who says Silicon Valley is expensive.  I can get you into Los Altos Hills baby!  And only $269 per square foot.  I’m thinking listing mistake…Concord? 

 

130213-eastbrook-dungeonPerfect for the large extended family?  Honey, please show aunt Betty to the 2100 square foot guest house, but this time please keep her out of the wine cellar and off the roof deck.  And honey, the kids really shouldn’t be playing pick-up soccer on the 280.

Yes, ridicuously cheap.  Too bad Foothill College doesn’t have fraternities.  This place would would be perfect… traffic noise would drown out the party noise!

Wonder why this never got snapped up last time we featured it… And here it is all the way from 2010!  Remember this one?

Wow, has the unwitting seller finally dropped the price low enough price to find a buyer?  Or is this just a coincidence that prices are finally going up again?

    ^ Someone is getting a huge bargain!

    Do any expert know: is the ’8′ in 280 lucky?

  2. SEA Says:

    I’m sure the buyer understands that the June 2010 list price was $3.6M, so the seller should expect an offer of at least $4M. “The overbidding will take care of everything.”

    Time to play “will it close?” According to Redfin, this pile has been pending since November. Maybe it did close and Redfin didn’t get the memo.

    High density build-out at San Antonio corner in Mountain View is going to screw up the Los Altos School District. Check it out.
