Kentfield Trailer

This is what the realtor says:
Lrge, charming 2br 1b family home on large lot. 1 blk from bacich elem. Dual pane windows lets in lots of light. Lrge, eat in kitchen w.Hardwood flrs. W/w carpet throughout. Fireplace in lr. Beautiful brick patio and yard w. Gorgeous rose garden. Drip system. 1 car garage. Top of the line engineered soundwall keeps sfd traffic to minimum. Home may be expandable to within 6' of fence according to seller. (buyer to verify with bldg dept).
Yeah, sounds like the greatest thing ever. Why would anyone dare to think otherwise? This is what the reader who sent in this POS says:
I toured it last Spring when they were trying to sell it for $750k. Believe me, it's a double wide moblie home disguised as a house.
The low-down on this Kentfield POS: 2 br 1 ba, 1270 sq ft, $968,000.

Also, this is house is ON Sir Francis Drake -- not a house or two down the side street or a block away. It's property line is 5' from rush hour traffic. Buy some earplugs if you want to live here.

Which reminds me: when we were house-shopping in 2002, I remember looking at a home that was 200' from 101 and the realtor was spinning this like a good thing by telling me that the sound of the freeway was soothing, like the white noise of ocean surf (punctuated by the occasional car crash however). I think I visibly gagged and shot soda out of my nose at that one!

I think this one is on the corner of SFD & McAllister... but that would be more than one block from Bacich.

If it's a different one, there is a true POS (duplex) on the corner of McAllister & SFD. I shall try to take a photo when I go by. The "For Sale" has been outside for about a month now.

A neighbor of mine took a look and said it's a POS inside too...
