This listing is under water. Literally.

Today’s featured listing is thanks to new Burbed reader wahnny, who brings us a delightful first Guest Post from an infrequent Burbed destination.  Let’s hitch up the trailer, because we’re going for a drive down south, and we’re going to be using the boat ramp!

Please give wahnny a big, warm, Real Bay Area welcome as today’s Guest Blogger!

Private and luxurious peninsula estate with breathtaking views of Uvas Reservoir on 9.45 Acres property is magnificent and transformational. With a 5 bedroom house, 2 bedroom guest house, triple carport, shop, and a barn and 6+ acres of arable land, this property has much to offer. This home is surrounded by water front on 3 sides, a 626 acre County Park and 1,165 acres of Open Space Preserve land


I’m a newcomer to (thanks to the link by madhaus on redfin forum), and thought this might be an interesting article to share:

I recently saw a unique property for sale in Llagas-Uvas area of southwest Santa Clara County.

Although the location of this property may be outside the RBA, its pricing doesn’t seem to be.  Aside from being adjacent to a county park (and its parking lot, with frequent weekend traffic), what makes this property extra “special” is the lakefront views … except during the rainy season, when over a third of the property may be underwater (notice the partially submerged trees), or during the summer season, when the water levels go down (sometimes way down … it’s a reservoir after all … see Google Earth image history).
