Check out the overhead on Google... I get claustrophobic just looking at it.

Wow. That's a lot cleaner than it'd be if I lived there.

Three washer/dryer stacks? I guess that lets the maid get more done.
 
2022-02-18 5:36:56 AM  
Pfft. For that much, I can get four walls of booze. And the good stuff, too.
 
2022-02-18 5:43:26 AM  
So just so we are clear...

6 front-loading, stacked, washers and dryers, with an alley of a gated drive way in a two car garage completely occupied by a golf cart and two beach cruisers, right off a busy 5 lane major thoroughfare?

Put down the crack pipe.

Damnit, of all the times for me to stop collecting purses.

Do the purses stay? spare change in them might offset some of the cost of the house.

(My mother had a deep closet with about that many purses. It was a good place to hide for hide and seek. It was thin, dark and scary looking, and the ugly purses disturbed most boys that they didn't really want to go in there. It was something of a bonanza for me. With candy bars at a dime each, I could always find enough spare change to go to the corner grocery and fill my pockets.)

It would be interesting to see them get that trailer in and out. Clearly they can but that is one tight fit.

The wall of booze is strange. Not because someone has a wall of booze, but that it wasn't removed for the staging of the house as it looks so out of place with the rest of the house.

Yes. Good for you. I never expected you to find your way out of the woods. Maybe you were smarter than you seemed.

We filled our pockets with white rocks and dropped them to follow our way home.  Where is mommy?

Never lost your imaginary friend, huh?  Your mother moved. She kind of had to. Her name was dirt in town with all the scandal of her repeatedly taking the wanted posters down and replacing them with pictures of other missing kids she might actually want.

Street view doesn't look bad. Sold for mid $600's less than a decade ago and now?

People need to stop feeding this frenzy. There will be a lot of folks finding they can't sell a house and go broke because they paid this kind of money for a place and discover it is with a half or third of that someday when they need to move. There is nothing at all special about this place

Looks like some kind of OCD neat freak that washes something in the garage then brings it inside to wash again. I would say a lot of kids but looks too clean even with the staging, but would explain all the booze.

I had to look that up. Many people have some drinking experience that puts them off booze or a particular booze forever. I'm not one of those people. (Understood it wasn't the booze but user error that was the problem.) If I'd been told mixed drinks required mayonnaise, that might have done it.

In college, we were introduced to the Sweaty Mexican (sorry...I did not make that name up myself), which was Tequila, Tabasco and a scoop of mayo. Not to be outdone, my roommate started experimenting and came up with the Butter Thigh (named for a girl he was, uh, seeing) and it was a shot of Yukon Jack with a scoop of butter in it.

I never did get up the guts to try the Butter Thigh.

I don't have a wall of booze like that because nearby is where they'd find my body.

I could do without the mayo, but a girlfriend and I were big on tabasco with cinnamon schnapps or tequila. (You could drink of a lot of the low-proof schnapps (Red Hots). They both later became pre-bottled drinks, if only by the bars. We didn't invent them, but I've still felt like we were cheated out of royalties because of all the conversation with people asking what the hell we were drinking.

Most likely a duner(someone who goes out to the desert in the winter in southern Cali) judging by the trailer in the back. Probably a surfer too since they live a few blocks from the ocean. When we lived in SoCal our washer/dryer was in the garage. Plenty of space and you didn't need to worry about heating/cooling 'cause San Diego(Oceanside is about 20 min north of SD) it's great for washing clothes that are covered in sand.

Gunner's Mate First Class Phillip Asshole: House looks like Patrick Bateman lives there.


I can't really tell from the pixels, but photoshopped staging seems to be very popular. This gave me the same kind of uncanny feel - but it's really well done if so.

15 or so years ago we did some mildly serious shopping for houses in the San Diego area. Oceanside was a more affordable outlier. We saw one new build that was tempting, but my informal survey of the nearest strip malls was discouraging. Most places, I was mostly noticing payday loan storefronts. In Oceanside, it seemed like bail bonds and pawnshops were rampant. Did not seem like the neighborhood for a $600k home.

But that was quite a while ago - wouldn't surprise me if these sellers get their price. It looks pretty nice and has good ocean access. But the freeway's not far, and its own street looks pretty busy.

More strange to me as it is getting ruined with all of the light hitting the Whiskey and the Whisky.
 
2022-02-18 9:19:05 AM  
Nice house. A bit close to the neighbors. No yard to speak of and I'd probably do a little remodeling because it needs more color/contrast on the interior. Checking the sea level rise maps it seems like this place would be ok.


And I see it comes with a nice wall of storage with built in lighting for figurines and collectibles. Nice! Optimus Prime is going right in the middle.
