Mariposa Grove is a coho community in Oakland, CA.  They're hoping to
have likeminded nextdoor neighbors:

> listing also says the
> house is over 3,000sq.ft. which is about the same as
> my guesstimate
> from looking at the house. It's bigger than any of
> our three houses.
> The listing says that it has a "large park-like"
> yard, which is an
> exaggeration. It does have a huge, beautiful old
> willow tree, and a
> couple pigeon coops (Yusef raises racing pigeons -
> I'll miss them).
> It's zoned for a duplex, so the large downstairs
> could probably be
> turned into a fully legal apartment pretty easily.
> The asking price is  $685,000.
