This house is OZZING WITH OLD WORLD CHARM! WOW

Wow, we must have been more upset about that ZipRealty schools report than we thought! Three houses in a row in the East Bay! Don’t worry, everything is back to normal now with this winner of a wigwam in Mountain View, on the best street in the whole city.  It isn’t in the newly named* neighborhood of CloGo (Close to Google), but you can’t have everything.  Thanks very much to Burbed reader dollarbin for smacking us upside the head. Um, we mean thanks for sending in a place that can pretend it’s in the Real Bay Area on a good day.

*Heck with that, we named it. And we’re durned proud we did.

130529-paloalto-bigkitNo wonder this place hasn’t cracked a million dollars, it’s a HALF-WAY REMODELED HM. We think they misspelled HMMM?

Also wondering what kind of BIG KIT awaits YOUR SPECIAL TOUCHES. Most KITS like to be scratched under the chin.  Maybe this one is waiting for the floor to choose just one color.

Here’s the streetview, for another look.

    Does Ozzy live there or come to play rock concerts in the yard?

  3. dollarbin Says:

    I love CloGo, hopefully we’ll see the term on any future listings from Gables End. The question is, how do we pronounce it? Rhymes with “Soul Glow” or “Shoe Goo”?

  4. Spizzi Real Estate Says:

    Love the amount of mature trees this home has.

    Love the amount of mature realtards from outside the region this site has. So much to say about this house and you’re going with the mature trees? Sheesh, just for that NO URL LINK FOR YOU! –ed.

    “WHO RUN DON-W’TOWNS?”

    “Big Kit.”

    “SAY LOUD”

    “BIG KIT RUNS DON-W’TOWNS!!”

    “Charming. Your special touches: waiting.”

  6. Bob in Oakland Says:

    Note the bare tube fluorescent bulbs in the kitchen (see pics at Redfin site). I wonder which half of the remodel they’re from – before or after?

  7. Divasm Says:

    Has this house already gotten the $100K markup on the price because it’s on PALO ALTO ave? There’s a premium for having those two words in your address anywhere people!

  8. PK Says:

    #2 – That was my suspicion too. Or maybe there are a bunch of headless bats in the attic?

  9. mtv-renter Says:

    This place is a piece of junk in a good area that’s a short walk from Castro St. Got help me, I’m going to put in an offer, since the place has some potential, but the only thing it’s oozing with is termite crap, black mold and fungus. The roof is full of holes, all the renovated stuff has leaks onto it, and the “remodeling” has been done by the occupant without any permits, so there;s lots of due diligence to do. As usual in a housing frenzy, time line is short. It went on the market Thu, offers are due on Tue.
