Yet another case of a home failing to sell and going rental. While this two-bedroom, three-bath live/work loft has been on the market for well over a year (with multiple pricechops from a starting point of $2.995 million), it's now also available to rent. Designed by architect Dennis Gibbens, the two-story loft features an "airy indoor/outdoor great room, custom Euro kitchen with Viking appliances," a circular staircase, outdoor fireplace, and rooftop cabana. It's also zoned for live and work. If you want to buy it, the asking price is down to $2.295 million. If you're looking for less of a commitment, monthly rent is $6,900.
