Opportunities galore with this charming home. Bright and Cheerful and very spacious. One upstairs bedroom, fireplace in family room. Backyard with fruit trees. Conveniently located near Washington Park, Libray and Sunnyvale Town Center. Close to train station and shops. Don’t miss it!! Open House Saturday and Sunday 1:00 – 4:00 PM

Opportunities galore indeed. Being that you’ll live across the street from Caltrain, you’ll have many opportunities to wake up. In the morning. Late at night. When the freight train comes by. When rush hour starts. Save electricity by throwing out your alarm clock! Wake up the natural way – the Caltrain way.

Don’t miss it indeed!

Beautiful home and area to live, for your family. Some upgrades. Large lot over 6000 sqft. Home is ready to move in.

Yep, this is what happens when you look at too many houses.

When you look at Burbed.com too much.

But you? You’ll just see this.

Shame on you.

(Thanks to Burbed reader Heather for this find!)

Hm. New… uh… wood laminate countertop?

Oh! Remodeled bathroom! Well, ok. Let’s see what else… I think I found it!

Yes! That’s it! It’s the retro tile and patched wall upgrade! It’s all the rage in these types of homes. I love it! At $554,900 – this definitely won’t last long. I’d bid $800k just to be on the safe side!

Now granted this is pretty inexpensive for Sunnyvale – there are condos that cost more than this…. but still. This house has CURB APPEAL. My favorite part is the antenna – it really adds a certain…. charm to this house.

So let’s take a look now, indoors:

1393socob.jpg

Wowsers. Does that kitchen countertop have legs? Can you even fit 4 things on that stove? Why is there a chandelier in the bathroom?

I really can’t decide which is better… the exterior or the interior?

What do you think?

I’m not sure how this is the Best Value considering that this is $891 per square foot, but it certainly does have Nice Curb Appeal! That’s why the photo is so tightly cropped to the house – with its beautiful electrical box right on the side.

BTW, this house sold in 2005 for $605,000. So if this sells for $639,000 – the current owner will barely break even. So better stop by soon, it won’t last long (even though it’s been on the market since 5/1!)

Sunnyvale house doubles as a fort

It’s Median Home Price Week on Burbed! As you know, the Median Home Price in Silicon Valley tends to be in the $68x,000 range, so each day we’ll be featuring a fine house of that price. Welcome to Day 4!

Whoever designed this house must’ve really liked World War 2 or something. Doesn’t this look like it would fit in on a base with the other barracks? I guess the lack of windows is a good thing in case there’s ever a car bomb in Sunnyvale. Or maybe to protect against you from avian flu. Extreme privacy for a median priced home…

This house should look familiar… it was on this site late last year:

 Welcome to America (Av)

The offer and sales purchase history for this house is pretty wacky… can you figure out what’s going on? Here’s the zillow data interspersed with some of mine:

  • 7/7/2005: Sold for $475,000
  • 1/26/2006: Sold for $580,000
  • 10/x/2006: Offered for $450,000

1 year old town house

Burbed has seen a lot of very very strange Bay Area houses. But my readers often times do a better job.

Here’s an entry from M C:

1 year old town house
$890000 1 year old town house (sunnyvale)

1019fuller.jpg

M C had this to say:

1. Does he come with the house?

2. Has he given the house a complete inspection

(*cough*) ?

3. Is the house good enough for a doctor to live in?

4. He’s there to administer CPR when you keel over at this price for a cheaply built spec townhouse.

Maybe there is some sort of cultural thing I’m missing here.

I dunno. Personally this is pretty damn creepy. I’m closing my browser window right now!
