Glassell Park Cottage Takes the Fun out of "Funicular"

New, 20 comments

This listing copy for this 1924 cottage in Glassell Park boasts of its "wide shady porch, terraced yard, hardwood floors, meandering walkways...views, garden patches, decks, [and] patios..." Which all sounds nice enough, if not particularly unusual. But then, it blithely continues on "...and the shards of a funicular designed and built by the original owner-builder." Whoa, whoa, whoa--shards?! What the heck happened, we wonder--some kind of Sinai and Olivet-style disaster? Suppose we'll just have to keep on wondering, as the listing offers only that tantalizing mention. (We also suppose the home's future inhabitants will be climbing a lot of stairs.) Other features of the two bedroom, one bath residence include Arroyo stone walls and fireplace, an eat-in kitchen, and detached, one-car garage. Last sold in 2004 for $463,500, it's now asking $359,000.
