This site does not get out to the East Bay enough. Thanks very much to Burbed reader Jeremy from Hayward for doing the legwork for us, with this vintage villa in Castro Valley. Remember, if you want us to cover more hella-fine houses from your hometown, be sure to send some in!
Today’s house is one you may be able to pick up with your income tax refund. Now who says there isn’t affordable housing in the Bay Area?

Bank Owned !!! CONTRACTOR Special !!! Home needs Extensive repairs or may need to be torn down. LOT’s of POTENTIAL for this 1.75 acre lot.
All I can say is Best. Addition. Ever!!!
No Kitchen? Need extra space? No problem! In the East Bay we just knock out a wall and drive our RV up next to the house, some duct tape, and viola! Mama’s new kitchen!
Oi….at least it’s not $1million!
Here’s another view of the RV.
Hoe. Leigh. Crap.
Jeremy followed up with:
Do you get a break on a combined auto/home policy for this?
It is pretty spectacular. Loving the retro dwell-ready colors on the RV as well….
Be sure to head over to the listing, because there are plenty more photos, although most are of the house without an RV parked in the middle of it.
Lot’s of POTENTIAL, indeed. Too bad the listing doesn’t specify if the RV stays.
Bunus: Location, location, location!
