This is a great opportunity for a large family, the main house has 4 bedrooms 2 bath with a attached legal in-law unit. The house needs cosmetic work but it is in good shape. all additions were done with permits.

Those of you who have read burbed for long enough know why this is a shocker… it’s a house that has additions with permits. A legal in-law unit.

Normally, the Real Bay Area is full of disruptors and entrepreneurs – leaders and visionaries who know that laws and regulations are mere guidance meant to be broken.

In fact, reading this listing, I almost have a certain disdain for this house. So ordinary. So legal. There’s a real lack of ambition.

Someone with true leadership and ambition would add 4 more bedrooms to this house. Wouldn’t you?

Also… what’s going on with the curtain in this picture…

    Pretty sure the curtain is hiding the “closet”

    This property seems way under priced for 5 bedrooms. Can’t believe the realtor let this one get out. There reputation will suffer.

    No mention of the garbage bag in the very first picture? I call this “pride of ownership” – the garbage has been exhaustively collected, safely wrapped into a plastic bag, and placed onto the sidewalk for disposal. This fits in well with the manicured lawn. The staging team really went to work on this one, congrats!
