Robert F. Boyle, who died in August, was a production designer or art director on The Birds, North by Northwest, Cape Fear, the 1968 Thomas Crown Affair, and our favorite gentrification film, The Landlord. He was also a trained architect and, in addition to recreating Mount Rushmore, designed this four bedroom, three bathroom house in the Hollywood Hills. The listing calls it "A truly magical place to watch LA's spectacular sunsets," with "Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors," multiple terraces, and panoramic views. There are also two fireplaces, mirrored walls, and plenty of built-ins. According to PropertyShark, the Boyle family still owns the house. Rent is $6,900 and pets will be considered.
