California House with METH LAB Hits Market for $1.5 Million

668 potomac ct

A few weeks ago, a single-family home on a 6,000 square foot lot in San Jose, CA was listed for $1,550,000 – with an estimated monthly cost of about $11,000. It’s probably fair to call this one a ‘fixer-upper.’

The home at 668 Potomac Ct “has [an] INACTIVE Meth lab and meth SMOKE contamination,” the listing states, adding that the cleanup will be at the buyer’s expense.

The 2,743 square foot house comes with six bedrooms and 3.5 baths, and also, you can’t see it until Santa Clara County’s health department grants access.

According to Zillow, the property also comes with an in-ground pool, spa and fireplace. It’s also near the freeway.

According to the LA Times, the previous owner of the house was Peter Karasev, a 36-year-old software engineer and father of three who was arrested in March for blowing up two Pacific Gas and Electric transformers. The LA Times also notes that the house was once used “for storing bomb-making materials.”

While the home is being sold as-is, it’s not completely clear how much work it needs, besides having to get rid of the meth lab and associated contamination. Whoever buys this place will need to have Jake from State Farm on speed dial.

Here’s Karasev’s Linkedin profile, which says he’s a Senior Machine Learning Engineer at Zoox, a company developing autonomous vehicles. It’s probably best to avoid getting in one of their cars until the dust settles, given that he likes to blow things up.
