Here’s another in our series of our seven-digit properties. Unlike Thursday’s San Jose house, this one is much closer in. In fact, this one is so close-in, it’s on El Camino Real. Or at least El Camino Real del Sur.

It’s not every day that a house with a 5-car garage comes up for sale, especially one that already has all the parking it needs.
Definitely a “live/work environment!” Let’s see who your new neighbors are going to be!
Can’t wait to meet them! But if you’re going to cross the street for a cup a sugar, better do it during business hours.
Here’s a look from the side. How many of the buildings are included with the sale, I wonder?
I see one advantage of this place already. There’s no Google Streetview of the front of the house! How many people can make that claim?
The compound seems to include the “Owner’s Living Quarters” on the ground floor of The Big House, the Guest House (with 4 bedrooms if you believe the agent’s virtual tour, or 3 bedrooms if you believe the listing), the Garage (with a one-bedroom apartment) and a building to be named later. The Big House also boasts three office suites (so the emphasis is more on the “work” than the “live.”) If you’re a Type A who wakes up at 4:30 in the morning to pound out a few dozen memos (after having turned in at 3:30), you could just set up a cot in each office and expect the same from your minions.
Since the listing promised seven bedrooms, your job, burbed readers, is to find the missing ones! Here’s the virtual tour so you don’t have to bother the listing agent. First one to find them gets their pick of either a.) Your very own house featured on burbed, or b.) Your very own house never featured on burbed. Second one to find them gets their house featured twice.
