If you have just shy of a million bucks to spend and are ready to "enjoy the 'Surf City' lifestyle," you might be interested in the City of Bell's former City Manager Robert Rizzo's swanky "executive home" now on the market in Huntington Beach.

It seems like when Rizzo came home to unwind after a hard day's work screwing over of Bell residents, he could seek refuge in the granite and marble bathroom with steam shower and soaking tub, or kick back in his master suite in front of the fireplace or on the balcony in his 3,250 square-foot 4-bedroom, 4-bath stucco sanctuary.

The OC Register can take you on a photo tour of the remodeled property, which Rizzo bought in 2007 for $1,130,000 but is selling for a mere $949,000.

It's been tough times for Rizzo since the Bell 8 were booked in September 2010 on corruption charges. Rizzo since was assigned to--and lost--a gig as an unpaid parking lot guard at an OC museum as part of a DUI case. Rizzo moved out of his house in June.

A suggestion to the buyer: Check into some of those hippie-dippy house "cleansing" rituals. It couldn't hurt. There's probably some serious bad juju in there.
