Far from the maddening crowds [sic] in Napa County. Rural Napa County.

121122-blackfridayYou thought we forgot about our Black Friday Deals Deals DEALS? Of course not!  We’ll be throwing in our rock-bottom sale items whenever the mood strikes us, and right now, the mood slapped us silly while saying, “Hey, how about you find another Cheapest In The Whole County” item?  We’ve only got two counties in the Bay Area left, so today we’re headed up to the Whine Country!

Warning: This is definitely not The Real Bay Area.

Far from the maddening crowds. .. your own private sanctuary located in Berryessa Estates! This home features parquet flooring in the dining area and living room. The living room has a fireplace with bench seating, two decks on either side while offering open access to the dining area right off the kitchen. The Master is located on the main floor and also 121204-lariat-kitchenoffers access to one of the two decks. Master bath features jetted tub to chase the cares of the day away. Downstairs is an oasis with a large family room with pellet stove and 2 additional bedrooms, bath, laundry room and the patio. Decks overlook the valley, what a great way to unwind! True there is work to be done but if you’re seeking seclusion, put this property on your list and take advantage of this great price reduction!

True there is work to be done.  Maybe it could start with rounding up this home a city to go with its street address.

121204-lariat-stairsWhat else needs to be on your list?  That is, aside from the bills from Cal Fire, the problems with the water and sewer services, and the growing number of foreclosures in the area due to residents unable to pay the huge water and sewer service bills. And bonds.  And fines for sewage spills.

Looks like if you move here, you’ll be tied up with all these exciting challenges!  But not as challenging as the previous owners who bought it in 2004 for $355K and were lassoed into foreclosure seven years later! 

Now when we said this place was rural, we weren’t kidding. You’ll be getting along your little dogie for a spell finding the place.

Now will someone give this realtard a copy of the Hardy novel

Nice home in Berryessa Estates north of Napa Valley and just off of Lake Berryessa. Plenty of potential as either a full time home or possibly a vacation home. Decks off of both sides of the home, 2 car attached garage, updated kitchen and a pool!

imageFor only $100,000 you have to find the photo of the front of the house yourself, because at this low commission, the agent couldn’t be bothered.

Memo to self: when designing a house, try to put the fireplace against a front wall.  The lack of front windows discourages nosy neighbors! Also perfect for the irritable types who not only want the neighbor kids off the lawn, but don’t want to hear them playing out front.

imageOr do these neighbor kids have inordinate love of slingshots?  Well, this house will make it a real challenge!

Here’s the other side of that awesome front façade.  How inviting!  Next time you laugh at a McMansion with an overly-done entryway, remember what it looks like when you leave one out entirely.

And speaking of leaving things out, perhaps the listing agent should have considered doing so with these two particular photos.
