Originally written June 13, 2012 on Busted Coverage:
Why would Barry Zito want to sell his house that’s actually called the Villa Della Pace which has a romantic view of mountains and leafy valleys? Simple, the place has to be extremely boring. Can you imagine being a guy who likes going to grungy bars, expensive restaurants and then having to go home to this place? Not me. Maybe one of you idiots wouldn’t mind spending $42,000 a month on this mortgage.  According to the realtor:
Beautifully sited on over 2 acres of hillside overlooking Phoenix Lake and with reach-out-and-touch-me views of Mt. Tamalpais, Villa Della Pace beckons to be admired and enjoyed. Private beyond two iron gates and down a gracious driveway, Villa Della Pace includes 4 bedrooms and 5 full and 2 half bath. New additions include a stunning new family room in the main house and brand new guest house with an 18ft deck, and new storage locker.
Blah, blah, blah. BORING! jQuery(function($){$("a img.gallery-wall-fade").hover(function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:.5},{queue:false,duration:400});},function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:1},{queue:false,duration:400});});}); Reasons Why Barry Zito’s $12 Million Home Bores Us To Death • 5 miles to nearest Whole Foods and that’s in San Fran traffic • 6 miles to nearest strip club (VIP) and that’s in San Fran traffic • Only 7,000 sq. ft. • Only has 4 beds & 6 baths • You owe $91,000 in taxes per year! • Dirtbag neighbors house is only valued at $1.55m Asking: $11,495,000 Mortgage: $41,690 per/mo. before you add in extra costs for landscapers
