A property on the corner of Condit Road and Pleasant Hill Road that had long been an eyesore has been razed. A crew with heavy equipment and dumpsters demolished and filled in the pool and completely removed the structure. The property that once housed the troublesome residence and potentially dangerous backyard pool will be listed for sale as vacant land with Coldwell Banker. A representative with the Walnut Creek Coldwell Banker office said they are anxious to get it on the market and get it sold.
Having been foreclosed upon some time ago, the partially remodeled home continued to deteriorate as first the owner of record, then Countrywide Mortgage, then Bank of America disputed ownership. Neighbors were concerned as area teens used the empty home as a hang out spot. The City of Lafayette slapped a lien on the property to pay for abatement fees and fines for the continual repair of the fence and removal of dead bushes. In limbo since 2007, neighbors were surely pleased to see the wrecking crew work their magic.
