Let’s now return to what makes Burbed the destination real estate site for the entire Bay Area. No, we’re not referring to our excellent Bay Area Bubble 4.0 coverage or our extensive featured looks at half million dollar crapboxes.

Let’s have Swan float in here.
[Today’s home] is in the same area as the Kennedy home [submitted last week]. This house is on Blackberry Hill Road: . You know it’s Burbed material when then listing starts with, "Excellent candidate for remodel." In this case, the listing gets even better! "WATER WILL BE TURNED OFF. DO NOT USE TOILETS. Seller Wants NO CHILDREN in property. .FOR SAFETY REASONS." There is an open house this weekend. I so want to go with a full bladder and a few small children who can run wild while I try to use the bathroom! Be sure to check out the pictures of the lovely wallpaper in the kitchen and master bath!
That is quite something, although our gaping is for the photo above it of the grounds. It looks like it was taken in 1972 and left in a shoebox so the dyes would age properly. And it makes the kitchen treatment look almost contemporary. Oh wait, we meant contemptuous. Using that white tile isn’t fooling anyone; that kitchen was remodeled in 1987 whether it needed it or not!
Remember the WATER WILL BE TURNED OFF. FOR SAFETY REASONS.
