An Elmer Grey-designed English Tudor estate in Hancock Park is on the market for the first time in 35 years. Built in 1925 by the famed architect whose work includes the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Pasadena Playhouse, the two-story house sits on a quiet palm-tree-lined street surrounded by gated homes. The estate's first owners, business executive Edward Bowen and his wife, Ella, died in 1930 after their plane went down in a storm between Oceanside and San Clemente. The Bowen House still bears their name.

Some houses are heart-stopping perfect. But John Boyd's ticker skipped a beat a few years ago for another reason when he was previewing a house on behalf of a client. It was a "pretty expensive house," said Boyd of Home Buyer's Agent in Ann Arbor, Mich. "It was mostly vacant. There was some furniture, but it was clear no one was living there anymore. And I was alone." When he reached the basement, it was pitch black, so he had to fumble around for a light switch. Finally, he found one around a corner.
