Like folks across the country whose kids are grown and out of the house, Patricia Bonds (mother of baseball star Barry) is downsizing.
Patricia Bonds has listed her 4-bedroom home on Lyndhurst Avenue in San Carlos with Coldwell Banker’s Buffy Bianchini. Asking price? $1,688,000.
The City of Good Living, however, is not losing Patricia to another community. “She’s staying in San Carlos where she’s bought a condo,” said Bianchini. Makes sense. Bianchini says Patricia has lived in San Carlos for 42 years.
Besides the physical charms of the property – described by Bianchini as a “fantastic house, beautiful, on a very quiet street” – there’s the whole Giants angle going for it.
“I haven’t been marketing it that way,” Bianchini explained, although she did say most of the realtors who stopped by the broker’s open tour knew it was the house belonging to Patricia Bonds.
This, after all, is the house the home run king and his brothers grew up in. Of course, Barry’s famous father former Giant and ML outfielder Bobby Bonds lived there, too (he died after a long illness in 2003 at age 57.)
At this point, I got to wondering if it didn’t make perfect cosmic sense for Buster Posey to keep the property in the Giants family and make a bid for the place. (Given the rumor that he’s renting in SC)
“I tried to get in touch with Buster,” said Bianchini, adding she related the particulars of the property to one of his representatives, although she’s not heard back from Posey.
The Bonds’ house also features vaulted ceilings, a game room/office, large basement, an oversized two car garage and a private yard and patio.
