Enough with the catty comments about no posts in two weeks. We’ll post when and if we feel like it, no matter what websites are on your toolbar. Today’s heralded homestead is from z2amiller and this is a hot, hot property! Why? Because it’s CLOSE TO GOOGLE!

Mountain View, CA 94043
— Sq. Ft.
Lot Size: 5,300 Sq. Ft.
On Redfin: 6 days

Lot still has foundation left from house burn down Jan. 2013. Nice neighborhood close to HWY 101
The Streetview photos show the property before house burn down Jan. 2013 (but really, it’s a nice neighborhood close to HWY 101!) Fortunately, z2a thinks bigger than that.
Okay so now I feel bad. I went to take pictures of this place and there’s basically a person squatting here with possessions scattered around and it looks like they are taking shelter under a tarp tied up in a tree.
I am guessing it is the property owner, with as much stuff as there is the property, MV police would’ve kicked them out if they didn’t belong. (I think?!) Also based on the MV voice article the lady who lived there was a hoarder, so given the state of the property (all of the garbage bags and random stuff all over) maybe it is the same person.
Anyway I’m having a hard time being too snarky about it now. :-/
I guess the neighbors will be pretty thrilled when the place sells.
And that could be you, Mr. or Ms. Burbed reader, all three of you. You could put up a six-story apartment house and become rich beyond measure renting out cubicles to Googlers who will only come home to sleep.
