Cancelled: 1134 Royal Ann Dr, Sunnyvale

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.
