This four-bedroom mid-century home in Brentwood is a little confusing. Some of it seems great, like the wall to ceiling windows, built-ins, wood paneling by the fireplace. But then there's the kitchen, which kind of makes us lose our lunch. The listing notes the house "brand new gourmet kitchen with new appliances, granite counters and new cabinetry." The second floor looks incongruous (surely it's a later addition?), and the "private and lush backyard" looks a little...anemic. And should we blame the relative dimness in these pictures on the house or the photographer? Monthly rent: $5,200.
