A tropically landscaped yard with an inground pool + waterfront views on Bayou St. John + a mod 1959-built house = this rather lovely just-listed 3,698-square-foot spread. Located on Bancroft Drive, the four-bedroom, four-bath abode has water views from every room, a sunken living room, cedar ceilings, and terrazzo floors. The last recorded sale shows a $186,000 transaction way back in 1979, and there's no evidence that the house has been up for grabs since then. The asking price: $995,000.
