Expired: 6003 Bollinger Road, Cupertino

6003 Bollinger Road — $788,000. Listed 4/17/08 (Michael Salmiery of Barton Real Estate represents the Seller) – 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms– 1432sf living space on a 6000sf lot– Home in "original, original" condition, with new roof in 2007, corner lot. Mark's Preview Notes: This home offers a nice entry point into Cupertino schools at an attractive price.  However, this home needs a lot of work.  First off, it seems to be a T-section lot, which means there is a street pointing directly into the garage, so this needs a “feng shui” fix.  In addition, many of the original components need to be remodeled (kitchen, bathrooms, floors, etc) so you should prepare for some good projects to keep you busy.
