Comedic actor and film star Sacha Baron Cohen and his wife, actress Isla Fisher, have leased out their Hollywood Hills West investment property for $10,000 a month.
The Midcentury-style home, built in 1959 and later renovated, came on the market in March for lease at $9,950 a month or for sale at $2.595 million. The couple own another house nearby that they bought several years ago for $14 million.
The single-story house for sale features canyon and mountain views, beamed ceilings, a river rock fireplace, a media room/den, four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and 2,806 square feet of living space. The lot, less than a third of an acre, includes a swimming pool, a spa and an outdoor gym.
Baron Cohen, 41, is known for his portrayal of offbeat characters in "Da Ali G Show" (2000, 2003-04), "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" (2006), "Bruno" (2009) and "The Dictator" (2012). He will star in an upcoming film about rock star Freddie Mercury of Queen.
Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland was the listing agent. Stephan Apelian of Coldwell Banker’s Beverly Hills South office represented the tenant, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
