Robert Rizzo's House for Sale: Drop $1 Million on Huntington Beach Mansion Haunted by Ex-Bell City Manager
Unsurprisingly, Robert Rizzo, the slimy Bell politician who was (allegedly; LOL) paying himself $800,000 per year with a $1 million pension, didn't think it wise to live among his duped constituents. So he settled for a $1.13 million mansion in Huntington Beach circa June 2007 -- no doubt comped by taxpayers -- where he could float his lardy ratlike corpse in a lavish granite tub and scheme up some more evils on the backs of the citizens. Muahaha...
Anyway, if you're into ex-celebrity living (he touched this very refrigerator handle!), and the Dude's abode in Venice isn't quite counterculture enough for you, good news: The asking price for Rizzo's palace of corruption has been lowered to $949,000! As for the ghost of Rizzo -- just consider it a party favor. Photos of the crime scene via the OC Register:
Don't worry, you're almost to the granite bathtub.
Yes, we saved the best for last. (Sorry.)
The hilarious/creepy/fascinating realtor's description of Rizzo's house, via Redfin:
Incredibly remodeled executive home just blocks to the ocean & downtown. Step into your private courtyard entry & open the beautiful etched glass front doors to enter this sparkling jewel of a home. Travertine floors, marble fireplaces, custom cabinetry, fixtures & finishes are truly top of the line. Custom dual pane windows, coffered & scraped ceilings, completely remodeled bathrooms & a great floor plan all work together to provide a beautiful living environment that is second to none. Gourmet kitchen with commercial quality Wolf range, designer natural wood cabinets, granite counters & large attached dining area is intimate enought to prepare private dinners for two & large enough to handle just about any entertainment needs. Luxurious master suite features fireplace, balcony & huge walk-in closet with custom flooring & chandelier. Master bath includes steam shower, soaking tub, stained glass windows & granite & marble hard surfaces. Move right in & enjoy the 'Surf City' lifestyle!
The Register reports that the house, JUST TWO BLOCKS FROM THE HUNTINGTON BEACH CITY HALL at 1935 Lake Street, "just hit the Multiple Listing Service. Rizzo, who has moved out, made various luxury upgrades to the residence."
Which should enrage you, not delight you.
We've contacted Bill Cuppy at Pier Realty for more information. Because who could resist more information, at a time like this.
