If you’ve been a long-time reader of this blog, you may remember that burbed (our founder and long-time content creator) had this thing for pink houses. So the site occasionally would dig up a pink house for Valentines Day. This year, we found an even better listing for celebrating a day for lovers. It’s all set up for a Special date you won’t forget! Many thanks to Burbed reader The Maggadads for this fantastic find from Fremont!

Mission schools! 12,110 sq. ft. lot, 1-story. $50k spent on 2011 remodeling kitchen, baths, carpet, tile, french doors & lighting, dual pane, AC & backyard. Built-in 50’s Diner theme- pool cabana/antique western town, 6-car garage w/ 1/2 bath, pool w/ water fall, new lawn & sprinklers. Not a REO/SS!
Here’s what The Maggadads thought of this place with $50K spent on 2011 remodeling:
I just started reading your blog. Although I take a minor offense to the jabs you poke at Fremont, I couldn’t help but send you this listing.
I’m not sure which is cooler…the 50s themed diner or the western-themed fence. At least it has a 6-car garage!
Wait, let me check, is this a house for sale, or a commercial property? Because while it’s always good to have a space for entertaining a crowd, a 50s themed diner wasn’t exactly at the top of my list in must-haves for an 1,800 square foot house.
But a 50s themed diner AND a western themed fence, both! I can die now. What a Valentines Day you’ll have! And if your date isn’t successful, one of you can retire to the six-car garage.
Well, this is one of those good news/better news situations. The good news is yes indeed, this house is in a 100% residential district and there is no danger that one of your neighbors will be opening up a 40s themed diner to compete with yours (and incidentally use up all the street parking). The better news is, well, location, location, location!
