SOLD: 1140 S Sage Ct, Sunnyvale

1140 S Sage Ct — $1,188,000. Listed 1/21/09 (Ellen N Saviano of Alain Pinel Realtors represents the Seller) SOLD for $1172K – 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms– 1755sf living space on a 10000sf lot– Atrium Style, 10000sqft park-like lot at end of cul-de-sac, remodeled kitchen with maple & cherry cabinets, bamboo flooring, double-paned windows. Mark's Preview Notes: Here is a very tastefully remodeled Atrium-model Eichler.  The "hobby room" was converted into a formal dining space and the kitchen remodel makes excellent use of the space by pushing the refrigerator into an ingenious location.  The painted-wall colors are excellent choices and what may be most overlooked is the addition of overhead lighting in the bedrooms where Eichler didn't have any originally.  This home is well worth seeing!

Calling Eichler Owners

I’ve been contacted by an independent filmmaker who is looking for an Eichler to use for a couple scenes in an upcoming film he is directing.  He is specifically looking for an Eichler with tiled floors (not wood or carpet, etc).  The filming will only be in the living room and should take 2 days in the week of March 16th.  Call or email me if this is something you could support.  408-887-1821  mark@themeshnetwork.com
