First time on the market! This San Bruno fixer offers 3 bedrooms, 2 baths with open floor plan with plenty of natural light and inviting garden . Great potential to make this gem shine. MUST SEE!!!

Let’s see what else it offers.


This carpet looks like it has more chlorophyll than the grass.  Now, check out the aerial view (because there’s no streetview). Looks like you’re going to get to know the neighbors really well!


And what’s that in the backyard?  A freeway (CA 35) PLUS high tension power lines! Win-win-win!

    Wow, I didn’t think the bubble would reach San Bruno – we lived there for several years until we bought our current place in the RBA. That neighborhood, Rollingwood, isn’t a bad area, it’s just that all the tract homes are really small with these big lots (this one is 14,500) that aren’t really useable due to the shape and/or slope. I would guess most of their lot is a hill leading towards 35.

    That price looks fairly reasonable. Go a few miles south and it’ll cost you at least $500k more. Anyone with a budget below $1m is turning further north.

    That’s not just Skyline Blvd and power lines behind the fault – that’s the San Andreas fault. That’s not necessarily a stow-stopper;I’d assume the shaking’s not going to be any worse on Fleetwood as it would be anywhere else on the peninsula in a major quake.

    Now, the fog up there – now that’s a show-stopper for me. 18 years in fog and wind was enough.

    ^don’t really see that many people moving north, south bay is heavily impacted and it would makes more sense if you work there to move further south like gilroy or mogan hill with a budget under 1m

  5. Real Estater Says:

    This type of property and area is the among the most overpriced in the Bay Area. Total location fail, airport noise, inadequate schools, non-ideal weather, not to mention being a crap shack. This is totally non-RBA material. When the market goes sour, this place would be the first to fall out of favor. If you can’t afford peninsula, look East, where properties are still under-priced.

  6. corntrollio Says:

    That’s not a bad neighborhood, but unless this location potentially has Bay views for some reason (usually west of Skyline = views, east of Skyline = no views), I don’t understand the price — especially as it approaches what people were paying at peak in San Bruno.

    It is a 1/3 acre lot, but you can’t use much of the lot and are right against your neighbors as you would be in many of San Bruno’s 5000-6000 square foot lots.

    I don’t think Real Estater knows this area, because you actually don’t get much airport noise here. You are in the fog-line by being almost in South City and it’s damn windy up that way, so RE is right about the weather.

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.)
