Cancelled: 1134 Royal Ann Dr, Sunnyvale

1134 Royal Ann Dr — $1,299,500. Listed 4/10/2009 (Mike Brasil of Referral Realty represents the Seller) – 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms– 2142sf living space on a 7344sf lot– Beautifully remodelled with city permit just completed. Mark's Preview Notes:  This really is not an Eichler anymore.  The Atrium is gone, the floor-to-ceiling windows have been replaced by walls with traditional windows, and the walls are heavily textured drywall.  The tongue and groove ceiling with supporting beams are the only remaining hints this was an Eichler home.

SOLD: 971 Ticonderoga Dr, Sunnyvale

971 Ticonderoga Dr — $950,000. Listed 4/7/2009 (Shakir Hussein of Imax Realty represents the Seller) Sold for $875k, COE 9/8 – 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms– 1970sf living space on a 7600sf lot– Jones and Emmons Eichler; Twin gable atrium model, Remodeled kitchen, bathrooms. Mark's Preview Notes:  This feels like another distressed sale just like the first time I saw Andalusia come on the market.  There are several broken windows or sliders in the Atrium and there are various unfinished or damaged walls.  The updated kitchen and bathrooms are a nice start, but the fact that this is a very desirable twin gables Atrium model far outweighs any shortcomings in the condition.  Putting some TLC into this Eichler will yield a very nice home of which you could be proud.

Expired: 765 Devonshire Way, Sunnyvale

765 Devonshire Way — $938,888. Listed 4/5/2009 (Vlad Rubashevsky of Rivkin Real Estate Group represents the Seller) – 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms– 1816sf living space on a 6976sf lot– Expanded/remodeled 2000 to 2007, Dual pane windows, Gourmet kitchen. Mark's Preview Notes:  The dual pane windows and marble in the updated bathrooms are nice changes to this Eichler but the long hallway entry is likely due to the Atrium conversion.  The new buyers may need to solve a Feng Shui challenge due to how this configuration lets the front door open into the master bedroom.

Mark's Preview Notes: Eichler 3 bedroom homes of this size means there must be another den or large living room, and in this case there is a very nice office / study overlooking the back yard.  Another bonus of this layout is that the master bedroom is separated from the other bedrooms.
