Offer accepted on Robert Rizzo's lavishly remodeled home

An offer has been accepted on the lavishly remodeled Huntington Beach home of embattled former Bell City Administrator Robert Rizzo.

The offer, which was finalized Saturday, eight days after the house was opened to the public, is expected to enter escrow shortly, Bill Cuppy, Rizzo's listing agent from Pier Realty, said Monday.

"We had an awful lot of activity on the property," he said.

He would not say whether the offer was more or less than the $949,000 the home at 1935 Lake St. was listed for.

"Once it closes, I'll be able to disclose all the information," he told the Huntington Beach Independent.

Cuppy said in this market, many things can happen, and the deal might not go through.

"An accepted offer is very, very far from sold property," he said. "We have a whole lot of stuff to get through first."

Rizzo heavily remodeled the two-story, 3,250-square-foot home to reflect his expensive taste.
