Beautiful home nestled in the “San Carlos Hills” fabulous Canyon views bright & Open floor plan. Large updated kitchen with granite counter tops. Refinished hardwood floors through the kitchen , living and dining areas. Private back yard with outside deck for entertaining. A must see !
My husband and I saw this home in San Carlos before it was listed by the bank (we were searching REOs) and were intrigued – nice neighborhood, big backyard, and it failed to sell at auction for $889K, so we figured the bank sit on it for a while and list it lower, as it’s obvious nobody thinks it’s worth that much.
WRONG! They didn’t even slap fresh paint on it (as is evidenced by the half-painted kitchen where appliances are missing), just turned around and listed it for….$1 Mil update: reduced to $950K! Why, you ask, would this home that Zillow lists at $926K, be worth that much? Could it be the several exits available out to the deck (I believe it was at least 5 doors, one of which is in the master bathroom, for those quick exits during police raids apparently)? Could it be the fact that you get a one-car garage with a nice front garage door but no side wall to enclose it (In case you get claustrophobic while getting into your car, perhaps)?
Or maybe it’s the bidet! The rather small-ish master bedroom features an even smaller-ish bathroom that you can barely turn around in yet features the normal toilet, sink and shower – and again the door to the deck in case you need to bolt after flushing something – and… A bidet!! That obviously makes this a place that fancy-types live, and thus justifies the 7-figure price! Keep your eye on this one folks, it might be going fast…er, by that I mean sometime in the next 6 months I guess since it’s been on the market for a month already.
I’ve attached a photo of the backdoor next to the toilet, you can see the rim of the bidet across from the door. I’ve also attached our photo of the front of the garage door, and the side with no wall. Sorry we didn’t get a better photo of the bidet…I think we were just trying not to drop the camera in shock.
