The sale of 38 Topaz Way up in Gold Mine Hill closed escrow yesterday with a reported contract price of $790,000 (12% under asking and 10.9% under its last sale in August of 2003). Which reminds us, we never published that peek into the neighborhood’s past.
And so we offer it now by way of a plugged-in reader and in the form of a few classic photos and pages from a 1969 edition of House & Home which not only featured the Gold Mine Hill development but such articles as “Do you think we have a housing crisis? Just look at Japan” and “The Housing market at midsummer: Forecasts turn cautious.”
