This seller has just one thing to tell you

Thanks very much to Burbed reader Ek for this find in the beautiful Blossom Valley area of San Jose.  This is the friendliest neighborhood you could live in, and today you’ll find out why.

OH Sat/Sun 2-4 Wonderful updated floor plan in great “Thousand Oaks Neighborhood” * Open floor plan * hardwood floors * crown molding * granite counters * plantation shutters * extensive use of pavers * outstanding backyard oasis with custom covered patio, palm trees and pebble tec pool * Close to park and schools * This one is a must see.

Looking this listing over, I didn’t see that much wrong with it.  Admittedly the décor’s a little out of fashion (okay, a LOT) and the agent could have done a better job with the photos.


Dim dining rooms, more granite than kitchen, and a sky that shrieks “This was shopped!” are mildly interesting, but not worthy of front-page status on Burbed.  But “this one is definitely a must see,” yet I’m not talking about the house.  Here’s why Ek sent this listing in:

Thanks to Burbed reader Ek for this photo:


Further proof that Morgan Hill isn’t in The Real Bay Area, and that you need to visit Scott Murray.

Thanks Ek.

Thanks to Burbed reader Ek for pointing this out. Sorry South San Jose – you’re no longer part of the Bay Area either. 🙁

You’re going to have to hang out with Gilroy and Morgan Hill from now on. Los Gatos, please turn your back to South San Jose. Thanks.
