Thanks very much to Redfin Collections member Quinn, who showcased this place in the awesome gallery Possible Crime Scene.  Some Burbed properties are featured there, which is how we found this one and are now returning the favor!

Maybe this is just us, but we’re sure getting a Was This House A Meth Lab vibe from these photos.

And be sure to check out what happened when someone bought the house, bulldozed, tore down, built up, and sold it for a lot mo’ money in 2012.

This is a total fixer upper. The house needs everything! Swimming pool full of rancid water. Considered uninhabitable . Sewer lateral needs to be replaced. This is a contractor special. The house needs all new systems and total restoration. Large termite report calls for further inspections. Holes in walls. Wood floors ruined.

130220-edgemar-hardwoodDid you hear that? This house has EVERYTHING!  Let’s check in with the zed.

Yeah, I know it’s totally not RBA, but how often do you actually see a listing for under $300k?

I think we’ll be heading to the open house just to feel thankful we don’t have cancer or gangrene.

Speaking of the open house, let’s see how open the walls are.

Wait a minute, wait a minute… Remember when we last saw floors like this?  Sure you do.

130220-edgemar-entryNow, we are definitely not saying that this house could have allegedly been a hypothetical meth lab.  And we are definitely not saying that this house could have been used for any non-normal innocent suburban purposes whatsoever OH PLEASE DON’T SUE US PLEASE DON’T THROW US INTO THAT BRIAR PATCH JACKPOT JURY PROCESS. 

But we are saying that it’s a good thing the nearest fire station is, we swear we are not making this up, only 88 yards from this house.

Have a look at some more pictures, including one that is very definitely NSFW, after the break.

Burbed has seen a lot of strange properties, but this find by Burbed reader sonarrat really takes the cake. The outside isn’t great – but it’s not super bad either. Let’s take a look at some interior photos:

Wow. Just wow.

But just think: buy it, bulldoze it, build a new house? Hey – suddenly you’ve got a pretty nice piece of real estate in Pacifica.

And this brings us to Friday’s “Write a story about what happened here” contest.

So… what do you think happened here? Let’s get those creative juices flowing!
