Today we turn our back on the crapboxen and Likelers. We’re off to Hillsborough, where you need not rub elbows with your neighbors at all. In fact, you won’t even see your neighbors unless you show up at one of their fundraising balls. Thanks very much to Burbed reader Michael Boltonestater for sending this in this cozy contemporary, provided that by contemporary we mean we’re putting on our FDR campaign button. Um, first campaign.

This isn’t just any house. This is the Tobin Clark Estate. It has its own video. And no, we don’t mean the one Redfin puts together automatically (there’s one of those too! Save $243,750!) Just think, this home has been host to “numerous dignitaries including Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush.”
Guess we now know the sellers’ politics. And given that the price goes up to $29 million if you won’t let the sellers finance your purchase, guess we also know how they got enough saved up to buy a spread like this in the first place. Remember, if they won’t give you a cash discount, you can always save $243,750 with Redfin!
We hope you also caught that the link to the estate notes the house was being put up for sale… in January. January, 2012.
On Redfin: 26 days. Riiiiiiiiight. At least the 35,000 square foot house isn’t a typo.
