Site of San Jose meth lab, bomb-making operation on sale for $1.5M
A spacious six-bedroom San Jose residence, spanning 6,000 square feet, which previously contained a meth lab and bomb-making operation, is on the market for $1.5 million.
The official Redfin listing for the property at 668 Potomac Court mentions the presence of a “dormant meth lab and related contamination,” directing potential buyers to county records for details.
The listing further states that any cleanup and associated expenses fall on the shoulders of the future owner. Moreover, the property hasn’t been certified as contamination-free, and access is restricted until the Santa Clara County Health Department gives the green light.
On the brighter side:
The property boasts a prime location opposite Gunderson High School and offers easy freeway access, as highlighted by its Zillow listing.
Cindy Selleos, the listing agent from Keller Williams Realty-Silicon Valley, hasn’t commented on the listing. However, the recent $125,000 price hike suggests she’s optimistic about its sale.
The Kobeissi Letter, a website offering insights into global capital markets, humorously pointed out the listing, commenting on the peculiar state of the current housing market. The site also mentioned that other properties in the vicinity, without a meth lab history, are priced around $1.6 million.
Historically, the house was occupied by Peter Karasev. He was taken into custody in March when authorities discovered explosive materials and drug-related equipment on the premises.
