Always wary of a listing without a single interior photo....

I'm glad I wasn't the only one that noticed that DZinerSF. To further that point, it looks like the pictures chosen for the listing site were selected based upon the artistic quality of the photo versus whether the picture accurately depicts the features of the house. Can we get some real photos?

YES! to both of the above comments! One is blurry and tilted. It looks like a accidental iphone shot. Except I do like the red interior shot. Its giving me a red light special ; )

Offers reviewed on Halloween... nice touch.
I hope to attend an open house. For science.

Went to the open house - there's a good reason why the interior pics are absent from the listing. Interesting piece of property. The buyer should either remove the pool or make it a central theme of an expanded living space.

At what point can a house, extensively expanded and modified so that little to none of its original appearance remains, still have its design attributed to its original architect? At the very least the listing should make clear that very little of the Neutra design is extant.

So what's the deal with this place? It's been in and out of "Pending" twice in the last month, is a contract required to be signed in order to get a walkthrough?

Nice property outside, but no living space inside. Overpriced for 900 sq 1br house. Need lots of work to make some living spaces.
