burbedguestbloggerPlease welcome sfbubblebuyer back to the front page with one of our favorite Burbed memes: Mawbul Kawlums!  The only real shame about today’s house is how incredibly tiny the pictures are, although there are more on the virtual tour.

Absolutely gorgeous traditional style 5 bed/4.5 bath home with Bay and city views. This very charming custom home has been featured in many magazines. Warm fir floors, tall multi-paned windows, fine molding details and a wonderful floor plan are some of the many features of this exceptional home. The property is set on 6.47 acres and is minutes from Woodside town center.

Check it out! DOUBLE DECKER COLUMNS! Clearly this is a house of style and sophistication. Surely you can imagine having a ‘coming out’ party for your debutante daughter at this glorious estate! She could pull an ‘upper decker’ and wave to guests from the second story balcony flanked by not two, but FOUR glorious columns, with another four below her to hold her aloft on her princess pedestal!

imageThe listing agent also has taste and discretion by omitting pictures of the kitchen. Only the help see the kitchen. We’d rather not sully ourselves by crossing over a thresh-hold into an area where manual labor might be in progress! And note the profusion of windows to keep those lazy maids at work! Maybe you could hire one of the local urchins to smudge the windows for you to make sure the maids never have a moment to spare! Idle hands are the devil’s playthings and all that.

imageSpeaking of idle hands, you won’t have to worry about yours being idle as you laze around your pool ordering the butlers to march back and forth between the house and your chaise refreshing your lemonade and Southern Comfort. It really is amazing how hard you have to work to keep the household humming along. In fact, you better send the chauffeur out to pick up some more brandy. The Chesterwicks are coming over for a couple of rubbers of bridge tonight. It’s a pity you can’t get them interested in a PROPER card game like whist. Ah well, such is the life of the landed gentry in America.
