Every now and then we’ve been known to skip across the pond or even ferry to the north to get our fix of real estate porn, and a good way to get us to bite has always been with a tip to some Mid-Century Modern gems and today is no exception.
Built in 1962 and designed by architect John Canavan, 4992 Valpey Park Avenue (Fremont) is 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, asking $668,000 (God bless East Bay prices) and has been “extremely well preserved (and tastefully upgraded) by its design-savvy owners.”
Unfortunately, we left our passport in Mexico and weren’t able to travel over to Fremont this weekend to check it out, but must admit, the home (and front yard) is right up our alley.

I would buy it in a heartbeat if it was closer to my job in the City. I just couldn’t handle the commute. Beautiful home.
Wow, if you are looking for great homes across the bridges, you’d be much better off looking at the Point Richmond real estate market. There’s a new website I came across, http://www.pointrichmondrealestate.com, that showed some smokin’ homes for reasonable prices. . .

[Editor’s note: Thanks for the clarification. I still won’t make it, but maybe some others will. We’re pretty SF specific, so I wouldn’t hold your breath. ;-) ]
