  1. Judging by the streetview, this looks terribly out of place. Lovely wooded sites that host some decent ranchers and then you have this stucco alien ship plopped in the middle of a barren site.

  2. As much as I dislike this style of architecture, it’s actually not terrible. It almost looks reminiscent of Wright’s Fallingwater (minus the water and stone). The stucco work makes me think of a brutalist or bauhaus building, though.

  3. I think the house is great.

    Dirt: $1.73mm
    7,600 * $500psf to build all in = $3.8mm
    $5.5mm basis

    Even if it sells for $9mm, it’s a money factory.
    Even if I’m wrong by $1mm on costs, still a money factory.

    Part of the economics have to be the 2012-present RE rally, and I think an equally interesting question is where the lot would sell today, without the house. Probably $3mm?

    Reminds me of the big modern spec build in Tiburon we saw recently.

  4. NO, prices are still quite high! it’s an ultra-modern house (most people in the area likes more traditional style..) and very close to Foothill expressway.
