Description – 3858 W Naughton AV, Belmont,CA,94002
Brand new Mediterranean hideaway on 12,750 sq lot. 500 sq ft living (NO TYPO-500 SQ FT) Secluded cul-de-sac location. Unobstructed San Francisco Views. Extensive deck space w/outdoor fireplace. Under construction now! Estimated completion February 2008.

That’s right folks – not a typo! Sure it says 917 sqft in the listing, but really it’s 500 sqft. This is important because in the Bay Area, we’re so into the environment that we look for smaller places so we can buy less stuff and be more green.

Here’s what I’m guessing, the house itself is 500 sqft, but the garage is 417 sqf – hence the 917 sqft. Just check out the picture above! That’s huge! It’s almost big enough for a second residence (nudgenudgewinkwink).

Either that, or maybe the 500 sqft is above ground, but the remaining 417 sqft is below ground – you know, part of your “hideaway” as mentioned above. Can someone say, panic room?

Thanks to Burbed Reader Ed for this find!
