Saratoga’s “Golden Triangle” Houses More Than Expensive Homes: A Ghost Who Lingers On

Forgive the rumor-mongering, but emails about a ghost in the prime Golden Triangle neighborhood of Saratoga, California, are finding their way to my inbox. 

The word is that an owner passed away many months ago and the home is being fixed up (or remodeled) for sale.  (When done it will be worth somewhere between 1.4 and 2 million dollars is my best guess.)

According to a neighbor: 

“Contractors have been in there and report unanimously that a ghost lives upstairs.  It looks exactly like the elderly person who lived and died there.”

No, I won’t give you the address.  And no, the house is not yet on the market.  But buyers beware, the owner of this home died quite awhile ago, and if it goes past 3 years, the sellers will not have to volunteer that a death occured on the property.  But if you ask, they’ll have to answer truthfully.

It wouldn’t hurt to knock on the neighbors’ doors and ask about the home before deciding to purchase it.  A lot of buyers do that for any home.
