Wow, was that listing copy written by an attorney who doesn’t want anyone to notice the details? Or perhaps a claustrophobic, because whoever typed that in is afraid of spaces. Now let’s have a good look at this opportunity with an existing 52 year old house that encroaches on New Property Line.
The red line appears to be for Lot #1, the bigger 8614 sf parcel. As you can see it cuts through the east side of the existing house, but fortunately, it did not bring the cooties of Santa Clara Schools all the way to the front door.
Yes, we hope you noticed that Lot #1 is Cupertino Schools and Lot #2 isn’t. But wait! There’s more!
See those little words in the driveway? Yes, technically your driveway is an actual city street that ends a few feet before the back fence. Here’s another look at the neighborhood.
So not only do you have one house with several inches on the other lotline, you also have a named city street taking up most of it.
How are you going to design your way out of this configuration? We assume one of the lots boasts a Portal to Hell for extra storage.
One other solution: Street Fair Every Day. Now we’re talking Serious Opportunity! Call up some of those Gourmet Food Trucks, have them kick back some of the take, and you’ll be paying this place off in no time.
