Piece of Stuccoed Shister in San Anselmo

This tiny arsed, stuccoed PoS is in San Anselmo. 2 br 1 ba, built in 1947, 1011 sq ft. It's been taken care of; the interior is pretty nice, nothing fancy, but you can tell that the person who lived there actually cared about the place enough to replace stuff that needed replacing (unlike this PoS). But I'm sorry, at $829,000 this is definitely a PoS. And by the way, in Marin, if it's made of stucco then it is looked down upon by Marinites as being "low class" (which is why, IMO, southern Marinites are pretty much agreed that all of Novato is a "pit" where the riff-raff are kept at a distance from the real classy folk). So keep that in mind if you just have to live in Marin and end up buying something like this.

OT: nice thing about stucco though: it doesn't eventually grow moss and rot like wood siding in our wet winters. Some parts of the state think stucco is the only option (like Santa Barbara), but here the "classy folk" like wood siding. The common thread being: most snobs prefer to be like their neighbors.

Perhaps this one has rebuild potential, but that's moot at $829K.

See, now that's nice. Well cared-for, nice landscaping, a little garage, nice hillside out back. It's not a POS. But asking $829,000 for a little cottage should get you your own special circle in Dante's Inferno.

At 829K it DEFINITELY qualifies as a POS. Americans have lost their minds.

Will we ever be sane again? How does the national psyche recover/wake up from something like this?

If it was priced accordingly for a cottage, then it would not have made it to these pages as a POS. The over the top price made it so.

LOL!

Why is stucco considered lower quality? It does not rot, it is more resistant to mold and it doesn't require cutting down trees to produce? I would think any practically-minded enviro-marinite would like it.

But then that's just me, living the dream in interbred, cousin-marryin' low-brow stucco-clad Novato...

It's the same level of thinking that goes on in the minds of people who put wood shingles on their houses when they live in a fire-prone zone.

Then when it's destroyed, they mourn their "unthinkable" loss. Gee, if you'd have done a little thinking, maybe you would have practiced proper firebreak procedures.

I thought you said you lived in San Anselmo now because you are an avid mtn biker and had to be within riding distance of Tam.
