PROPERTY UNDER CONSTRUCTION. VIEWED BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY MID/LATE AUGUST
Has anyone driven by this property to see if it was COMPLETED BY MID/LATE AUGUST? Wouldn’t you think if it was COMPLETED BY MID/LATE AUGUST the agent would update the listing? For a lousy $1,575,000 property, I guess not. Anyone connected to this two-story new construction interloper in a neighborhood of hundred-year-old cottages isn’t going to be given a warm welcome.
At least it’s on the Right Side of El Camino:
Wonder why the lot isn’t outlined? Maybe the neighbors deliberately misplaced it, leaving it in the middle of the street to get run over. It’s one of these two, either the one Google thinks it is (which has the tree conveniently obscuring the house requiring an artistic angle shot):
Or this sylvan paradise next door:
Property Shark is even more confused, with records for only 3 properties on the street, and needless to say, this isn’t one of them. Better yet, the addresses don’t agree with Google’s, even with a direct search for the other house numbers. Talk about an undisclosed address!
So which lot is it? If it’s the first one, you get to live next to the Haunted Forest. Act now and you can move in right in time for Halloween! Probably not the second one, with the driveway cut on the right while the construction photo shows a garage on the left. Then again, the aerial view doesn’t show an actual house on that lot, which suggests it was time to throw a new one up.
But you never know! Why not drive by and see if the place ever got finished? Obviously the agent has much better things to do.
