Freshly added to the market is a 1924 bungalow on a hill in the western part of Eagle Rock. If the photos in the listing are a little hit-or-miss, that's okay--the copy compensates by conjuring up some vivid word-pictures. "As you stroll thru the lush yard with a fish pond, meandering paths, numerous fruit and Live oak trees, a pergola covered w/ wisteria in this private and soothing setting it brings back memories of the Big Sur Lodge and Nepenthe. Prepare yourself to be smitten." The two-bedroom, one and a half bath cottage's features include hardwood and limestone floors, French doors, period tile and hardware, a basement, deck, central air conditioning, and "upgraded systems." Sited on an 8,234-square-foot lot, it's asking $499,000.
