This five-bedroom, four-bath house in Brentwood was designed by Googie architect Douglas Honnold. Honnold, who also designed the forever-under-construction Sunset-Vine Tower and the recently sold former home of the William Morris Agency in Beverly Hills, was also John Lautner's boss for some time. Until, it seems, Lautner married his ex-wife. The house was first available for rent in July for $10,500 per month with a $21,000 deposit. It seems no one bit at that price, and it's now available for $9,500 per month, with a mere $19,000 deposit. The house also features a pool, pond, central patio with a fireplace, and a separate studio/bedroom with its own bar.
