Rent Howard Hughes’ Former Mid-Century Home in Beverly Hills

Up for rent in Beverly Hills, California is a mid-century modern home that is rumored to have once been one of the many properties of American business magnate Howard Hughes. According to the listing agent, the 3,900-square-foot property located in affluent Trousdale Estates enclave, is “said to have been owned” by the legendary mogul and aviation enthusiast, and can be had as a rental for $22,500-a-month.

It is entirely conceivable that the aforementioned property was owned by Hughes at some point or another, especially when one considers the fact that the mercurial mogul accumulated a massive real estate portfolio in his years, spending roughly $300 million on properties in Las Vegas, Nevada alone. Either way, the four-bedroom, five-bath offering is a pretty swell mid-century pad, what with its rows of glass walls, posh sunken living room, obligatory wet bar, brick and marble-lined fireplaces and an upper-deck lounge area with views of the city and Franklin Canyon Park.

Offered fully furnished, the property features such amenities as a small workout room, steam showers, pool table, outdoor kitchen, pool and spa. The Hughes rental has also been retrofitted as a ‘smart home’, with heating, air, audio and video all controlled from the touch of an iPad.

This listing is presented by Kittean Clark of Rodeo Realty.
