If you’re a fan of California modernism, there’s quite an embarrassment of riches on the market at the moment.

Among the bumper crop of pedigreed properties currently for sale are a Case Study house, a Lautner, a Buff & Hensman, and an A. Quincy Jones. And popping up on the rental market is our old pal the Bonnet House, designed by the formidable Richard Neutra in the early 1940s.

Located on El Contento Drive in Beachwood Canyon, the two-bedroom, two-bath came up for sale this past May and was quickly snapped up at its asking price of $1.795 million.

Five months later, having been decked out in an array of collectible vintage art and furnishings by the likes of Gio Ponti, Alberto Giacometti, Knoll, Paul McCobb, and Milo Baughman, it’s returned as an $8,000 per month lease property.

Along with the 1stdibs-worthy furniture, the hillside home features International-style ribbon windows, two fireplaces, hardwood floors, a lower level media room, a laundry room with wet bar, a flagstone patio, and multiple terraces.
