Sometimes our readers forget that we are a Northern California real estate blog, not just Silicon Valley. We realize with so little of the Real Bay Area outside Where Innovation Happens it’s easy to forget this. However, Burbed Win can be found almost anywhere. Today’s featured funhouse from Burbed reader edie takes us to the wild and uncivilized jungle of Orinda! (That’s in CoCoCo, in case you haven’t gone anywhere but Google via Google Bus in the last two years.) But one thing this place has in common with so many other Burbed properties: Pending!

This charming cottage is on a great oak-studded . 28 acre lot in the Orinda Country Club area. It’s an idyllic setting! The house is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1200+ sf in two stories with a 2 car detached garage. Ready to move-in, remodel or tear down and start over.
Check out the price history. The place went up by 200K in a year when it clearly hasn’t been touched in that time. (Unless "creepy backwoods cabin" is the new aesthetic among flippers.
Though pathetically, after going to yesterday’s open houses in the East Bay, this place doesn’t seem so bad to me.
We always wonder about listings where there are 3 times as many outside as inside pix, and it’s not like the outside shots are showing different parts of the grounds. We can only assume that the current owner has some secret Web 6.0 Electric Motor SuperDuperHyperUltraLoop High Speed mass transit project in those bedrooms that Cannot Be Photographed Upon Pain of Death or initialing every one of the 400 pages in the NDA.
Or, this being Orinda rather than Saratoga, it’s more likely a bunch of dead primates.
