His newly-listed California rental home, which is known interchangeably as Farralone or Byrdview House, features ample living space with a contemporary open-plan design.

Along with the main house, the compound features a cabana and a guesthouse with its own circular pool. Sinatra sublet this outbuilding to Marylin Monroe and it reportedly served as a love nest during her notorious affair with President Jack Kennedy.

In total, there are seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms with a minimalist and slightly retro feel running throughout.

Whitewashed walls allow contemporary wall hangings to take center stage, while dark wood flooring provides a feeling of warmth.

Communal areas in the house include a large living room with a full bar, a dining area, a formal dining room, and a piano room.

Floor-to-ceiling windows which encase the property provide unapparelled views of the surrounding gardens and over the vast 1,325-acre Chatsworth Reservoir nature preserve below.

The property was first publicly listed for sale in 2011 for $12 million.

Lynn Teschner, a realtor from Coldwell Banker Previews International who was representing the sale, told Forbes at the time: “If walls could talk, this house has had more celebrities in it than just about any other house in Los Angeles.”

This time around, the sale is being managed by Barrie Livingstone of Sotheby’s.

Along with it being the ultimate party pad, realtors note the property as an income-producing vehicle as it has pulled in more than $2 million a year from location shoots.
