Flowing open floor plan in the far-flung exurbs

We have been spending FAR too much time in Silicon Valley. Let’s take a look at a property far away from Google in the far-flung San Jose exurbs. Or would that be Mountain View exurbs, given our comments about San Jose yesterday? This one’s a good fifty miles from Downtown SanHo, so it definitely is a long enough commute to be beyond a mere suburb. And like most exurban homes, it’s bigger than the usual Monta Loma Eichloid.  Whoops, Pending, even in the exurbs!

Thanks very much to Burbed reader amer_icongrl for today’s listing!

Panoramic ocean views are just the beginning in this exceptional Spanish Mediterranean home on a premier 17th Ave block. With a flowing open floor plan, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, wood burning fireplace, and hardwood floors throughout, there is everything needed for gracious living. Enjoy the views from enclosed sun porches and dine casually in the eat-in kitchen.

130814-17th-sunporchYou’re going to have to enjoy views from the enclosed sun porches because this house doesn’t have a lot size. Oh, wait, the public records say it’s 3,000 square feet.

You’re welcome.  Here’s a typical example of the spectacular sunshine you’ll enjoy on the sunporches when you’re 50 miles from San Jose.

Now let’s hear from amer_icongrl.

17th Ave is the new "Inner Sunset"

130814-17th-stackedI gasped when I saw the location of the stackable washer & dryer.  Also, an overpriced home in SF is no surprise, but typically for 1mil + they put some effort into staging the place (or at the very least, put the toilet seat down).

I just love the "why bother? they’ll come with cash and overbids anyway" attitude!

It’s pending, right?

130814-17th-toiletWait, did you say open toilet? You are talking some serious Burbed win, here.  We’d been doing such a good job educating realtards on basic Dos and Don’ts, (Do include more than one photo, Don’t shoot until you’ve cleaned up the room, that sort of thing) that it’s been ages since we’ve seen a toilet salute.

Thanks for making our day! We’ve added it to our grand collection of Saluting Toilets over on Redfin Collections!

Be sure to check out more of the photos. These are some of the saddest, loneliest listing pictures in a million dollar house we’ve seen in a while. If only this place knew the way to San Jose.

    DHO on pictures #19, #21 and #22. Come on madhaus, focus!

  2. nomadic Says:

    Dang, Redfin snatched the pics away!

  3. nomadic Says:

    Now that’s interesting: the pics are up on the website, but they weren’t on the mobile app when I posted earlier.

  4. nomadic Says:

    BTW, amer_icongrl, the washer and dryer are in the laundry room. I’m guessing you thought that was the kitchen?

    I think the big effort for staging faded away by the time they emptied this place out. It probably had a lot of crap accumulated over the years, given its assessed value of just $97k.

    (Madhaus, I’m making up for a lack of posts on other days… 😉 )

    I was hoping the laundry was in the kitchen. Imagine how delicious bacon scented underwear would be on your spouse.

  6. KikiSC Says:

    Hey! No huffing my spouse! I wonder when they shot the exterior pic – the sky isn’t usually so SJ blue in that part of the world.

  7. amer_icongrl Says:

    I did think it was the kitchen–oops! In that case the super-delux laundry room can be rented out as a studio apartment for $1895/mo.

    Yikes! a million! I grew up in the inner Sunset on 10th Ave. and it was very much middle class and affordable back in the day (60’s and 70’s)…very sad to see this but this place does qualify as inner Sunset, 19th Ave. is the unofficial boarder IIRC.
