Today’s listing is courtesy of Burbed reader Swan, who sends us a Sunnyvale spectacular. That’s provided that by “spectacular” I really mean “OMG what a crapbox!” Seriously, I have had my eye on this house for several years and have been waiting for it to get listed so I could share it here.

Very Nice Eichler with enclosed Attrium and Cupertino Schools, Spacious Living Room and Family Room w/ a gorgeous fireplce, Master Suite w/ Walk-In Closet, Tile, Attached 2 Car Garage, Large 7200sf lot with a Pool, Indoor Laundry, additional 500sf with enclosed Attrium not on MLS, West Valley Elementary, Cupertino Middle, Homestead High! This Home will sell fast, all offers considered. Needs TLC.
Here’s what Swan thought about this delightful domicile:
It’s on Homestead, right next to the entrance to the CMS [Cupertino Middle School] track. My hubby and I have noticed this house for years as it becomes more and more run down. I love how the agent says the home will sell fast. I went by it on my bike the other day. The house needs a new garage door, new fence, new roof, and who knows what else. Though the agent did not go out of his way on the photos, he at least took them from an angle and from across the street to hide the poor condition of the home.
I agree that the price is insane. That home, especially the roof, has not been cared for in years. My husband is a contractor and every time we go by, he says, "That poor house."
I am just happy the owners listed this place while it was still standing upright. I don’t know when the Streetview shot above was taken, but it could hardly have gotten much better.
But that asking price? On what planet will this pile “sell fast”? Are there really people out there that
eager desperate for Cupertino schools?
Remember this place? At least it’s on a court (right off another busy street) and it isn’t moving for $30K less, with lucky 8s instead of 9s).
I also love that this place has an Attrium that has an additional 500 sf not on MLS. Maybe the realtard made a spelling oops and is really saying this house is full of expensive rare earths like Yttrium! It must be important, because the Attrium is mentioned twice, just like the Cupertino schools. I SAID CUPERTINO SCHOOLS, EVERYBODY!
Now, everybody into the pool! Ahhhhhh.
So who would buy this? Somebody who really, really, really wants those schools. Somebody who wants them enough to put up with a busy street near a freeway interchange, a house falling to pieces, and the delightful shrieks of children being forced to run the mile over and over.
