50 Hillcrest Park, $2.699 million. I liked the house itself – it has a ton of space, all usable, in a well thought out design, and a great walk-out basement with even more room, but it’s built on a cliff so there is no – none, zero, nada – backyard. A nice front yard, yes, and a (very) small, inviting pool where there might otherwise be a scrap of a backyard, but if the Texan was all hat and no cattle, this was all house and no lawn.
That was obviously not a problem for the current owners, who paid $2.885 million for this when it was new in 2004, and not for whoever is buying it now. Not everyone wants a play yard.
