A listing for a gorgeous 1,872 square-foot house on California's central coast has drawn attention thanks to its rather strange houseguest.

Coldwell Banker posted 5649 Hillside Drive, a five-bed, three-bath home in Fenton, California, on the real-estate site Zillow on May 15, with an asking price of $999,000.

The hairy cryptid is selectively peppered through the listing's image gallery, which includes pictures of the carport, wraparound deck, and several outbuildings.

Scan through it too quickly and you might not even notice he's there.

Bigfoot seems surprisingly chill, not at all the rampaging beast portrayed in the media.

The house itself is a gem, with an open floor plan and huge windows that allow in tons of light.

Daniel Oster, a realtor with Coldwell Banker, told Insider he specializes in using high-end photography for his listings.Advertisement

Oster had completed a standard shoot using drones and a professional cameraman when he thought about adding Sasquatch to liven things up.

"It just kept coming to mind, I thought it might be fun and make people smile," Oster said. "Home buying is kind of an adventure, and I wanted to make it a surprise."

Oster mentioned his idea to the seller and they thought it would be fun and maybe make people share the listing.

"Then it just snowballed," he said.Advertisement

The house is still on the market as of publication.

Felton is also home to the Bigfoot Discovery Museum, a two-room building off Highway 9 founded by curator Michael Rugg in 2004.Advertisement

Rugg first saw the burly beast in 1950, when he was just 4 years old, according to Roadtrippers. Since then, he's documented more than 400 nearby sightings, which dot on a map in the museum, along hundreds of other memorabilia.

Rugg believes that a family of Bigfoot lives near Loch Lomond reservoir, according to Roadtrippers, about seven miles from the house.

In November, Bigfoot appeared in a Zillow listing in Ravenna, Ohio, Cleveland 19 reported. The hairy hominid could be seen sipping coffee in the kitchen and using the bathroom.Advertisement
