Are you green with envy about this green house in Redwood City?

102 POPLAR Ave
Redwood City, CA 94061

20131004ab

Being green is all the rage these days. And I don’t think there’s a greener house than this!

Lime green? No not quite. Pea soup green? Hm. Guac green? Sinus green?

But let’s look at the opportunity to grow!

I see… so if you expand the back of the house to touch the detached garages… uh… I mean mancaves and media center…. then you’d have a super house. Your house could fill the lot edge to edge! Neat!

What I’m really surprised at is how the realtor left out the convenience factor!

My goodness! This house is literally in the crossroads of the world… or Redwood City. Easy access to Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Harry’s Hofbrau, Woodside, El Camino Real, Main Street, car repair shops – the opportunities are endless.

I don’t understand why no one has snapped up this jewel today.

How will you spend the weekend? And will it involve visiting this house?

Free Plums in Mountain View

Yes, we are back to Mountain View, because we cannot seem to stay away.  Every time we Google “Center of the Universe” this is what pops up.  Although if our readers would send in properties somewhere else, anywhere else, please, please, please, we are begging you, send us a house NOT in Mountain View, even not in the RBA if you have to.

Pardon us. Ahem.  Anyway… hope you like some color other than white in your house.  That is if by “some” we mean “way, way more than some.”  And by “your house” we mean “someone else’s house” because, of course, this pad is Pending!

So much to love about this house, whether it’s that it was foreclosed on this past Valentine’s Day, or that it sold for more in 2005 than the current listing price, or that the helpful Redfin agents want you know that not all appliances are present.  As in are any appliances present?

120823-morgan-backyardBut other than that, this house is indeed near move-in ready, provided you’re near ready to open up a preschool onsite (but only after you clean up the carpets).  This is some serious color coordination we’re talking.  The house was just remodeled, so the sellers decided to stick with the original 1976 paint scheme of tomato, avocado, and mustard.

Which means the plums out back are ready for you to have for dessert.  Or to paint another room.

Duette home located in a cul-de-sac, with a large side yard.

Burbed rarely ventures north – and this piece of real estate is a great example why. Just $239,900? Sheesh… might as well price it for free if you’re going to price it like that.

Still Burbed reader mrbogue was reminded by something when he saw this listing:

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield (Star Trek: The Original Series)

Personally, I’m reminded of this:

Seinfeld – The Dinner Party
JERRY: Oh look Elaine, the black and white cookie. I love the black and white. Two races of flavor living side by side [mumble?] It’s a wonderful thing isn’t it?

ELAINE: You know I often wonder what you’ll be like when you’re senile.

The term duette is pretty cute. What does this house remind you of? Doesn’t it sound like a cleaning product?
