    It reminds me of the homes of some of my friends' parents ... and I'm in my forties.

To each one's own and all, but it became amusing to me how many times I saw this, and how each time I went through the same steps of adjusting my perceptions.

    I had high hopes for this, but yeah the interior blows all kinds of chunks. Beautiful views and I like the feeling of such easy access to the outside. Cute doggy. To be honest though, if I'm going to pull out my countless wads of dough for waterfront property, it'd better be water I can actually swim in.

    yeah, it is definitely prevalent there. also in ross. funny how each little town has its own 'feel'. tib/belvedere would not be my personal choice. not too many good restaurants or bars, either.

    Since I've never lived in the Bay Area (just spent a lot of time there), I notice odd things. To me, Tiburon smells extra strongly of old fish, seagull, and salt.

    ^^^ hmmm. i think during low tide it might smell. but the same could be said for sausalito, mill valley, or ocean beach. *shrugs*

    i thought you were talking about the old geezers with young chicks.

    Plus it looks like it would slide down the hill with one good shake.

    ^^^well, to be fair, the san andreas fault is more stable that the hayward fault so i wouldn't worry so much about a shake.

    tib can be foggy, depends on exactly where this place is located. lots of different kinds of weather, sometimes they even vary within a few blocks.

    I'm in. I never look at the decor when considering a property. That goes with the previous owner. I look at the potential and I like what I see with this home.

    You guys are hysterical. It's a waterfront home in Marin with lovely landscaping and views of SF and the bay from every room. Somehow I'd survive should this amazing pad ever be forced upon me. *gag, choke*

    No, actually, I'll march right back to Oaktown and pull up a lawn chair to watch the drive-bys every night. Fuck Marin.

    ^ Yeah, I'd probably take it too. Begrudgingly, of course. But those frilly curtains would have to go! I have my standards!
