Leases in Los Angeles and Southern California come and go so fast that it’s almost impossible to keep track of them. And it’s only every once in a blue moon that we see an architectural or unique home come onto the market as a rental. Here we have four fabulous homes offered for lease; two historic and stately Monterey Colonials as well as a delightful Scandinavian style hilltop home, and a classic 1920s Cape Cod. Whether your lease is long term or short team, one thing remains true, you don’t need to compromise style when renting a home.
