House of the Day: Do You Know the Way to San Jose?

For the longest time, we thought Dionne Warwick was singing "Do you know the way to Santa Fe?" because who, after all, would want to admit being lost en route to San Jose? Then along came the boom and suddenly San Jose got cool and everyone and his brother was getting lost trying to get there. The cooler it got, the higher its housing prices got.

Now of course things have settled down a bit. Now, we get to admire San Jose houses for things like great outdoor kitchens, like this one in a home listed at $2.9 million.

House of the Day: Do You Know the Way to San Jose?

A stately Mediterranean in the Willow Glen area, the house has 4,600 square feet and four bedrooms. But it starts to register high on the House of the Day-ometer when you step outside.

A large pergola covers the outdoor entertaining area; the kitchen features Viking appliances and granite counters. There is a covered eating area, fire pit, dramatic exterior lighting, a state-of-the-art sound system piping in the atmospheric music and a Pebble Tech pool for when you realize just how hot San Jose can be.

Michael Dunn, Coldwell Banker, has the listing.
