Someone may get in touch with me to point out some obvious flaw I have failed to notice on this listing, but it seems this remodeled lemon-yellow home on a corner lot at 1801 Stuart Street, might be worth a second glance.

Three bedrooms, and two baths, and a total 1,811 sq ft, a good-looking new kitchen and a tidy garden — and the price is $699,000, or $386 per square foot.

The home was built in 1906 and is a stately looker with columns flanking the front porch. There’s a detached garage and, as the listing points out, it is close to BART and Berkeley Bowl, as well as Grove Playground.

Update 16.13: Whoosh… that was quick: we highlight the home at 2pm and by 4pm is is marked as Sale Pending. We didn’t realize the extent of our influence.
