In this era of "House Sold for Insane Profit" stories, this one stands out.

Sure, the sales price is a zinger. Bought in 1992 for $76,000. Sold last month for $1-million.

But the story of this house sale has unique subplots: a hard- nosed negotiation between Scientologists and a big-time condo development shaking up the neighborhood.
