Looking for the perfect summer romance without the long-term commitment?
If so, you're like every guy we date.
Okay, we digressed. The real estate version of the she's-gorgeous-rental is 8500 Burton Way, an eight-story luxury residential complex that pays attention to every detail. "Rentals" has long been a dirty word in Los Angeles (options basically suck) but 8500 Burton has stunning architectural details, soaring ceilings, sleek kitchens, contemporary natural-hued wood flooring, expansive living spaces and elegant bedroom suites. Oh, and just step outside on your private balcony to find panoramic views of downtown LA, the Hollywood Hills and the Pacific Ocean.
And nowhere is it more like heaven on earth than in the Penthouse 800 unit - a 4,000 square foot, ultra luxe suite. Designed by award-winning Los Angeles interior designer Waldo Fernandez, who designed the Soho House and residences for a Who's Who of LA, this exquisite suite rents out for $40,000 a month.
For that price tag you get a gorgeous living space along with all the building's five-star amenities - a house car, concierge service, pantry stock, and fitness center. Although we doubt you’ll get bored inside, cocktails on the rooftop pool deck never sound like a bad idea to us.
Basically all you need to bring are your clothes, although we’re sure the concierge knows someone who could deliver Isabel Marant Fall/Winter 13 to your door as well.
