For a fat girl, she sure don't sweat much


It’s considered simple good manners — neighborly, in fact — to find something nice to say about a person or his house, but that’s a tough pull for 5 Neighborly Way, a spec prefab in NoPo that has finally sold, for $1.645 million. Finish quality is appalling, location is poor, and the design is as odd as you’ll encounter in the real estate business: what on earth is a kitchen doing an a section of a two-story barn, just as a for instance?

But even an ugly duckling can find someone to love it, and this one has. Out-of-town broker/buyer, if that makes a difference.
