Winklevoss twins put their spare aerie up for lease at $150,000 a month

Internet entrepreneurs Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss have listed their view home in Hollywood Hills West for long-term lease at $150,000 a month -- offering a rare glimpse inside the residence.

The twins paid $18 million in 2012 for the contemporary-style two-story, which is in the celebrity-popular Bird Streets area.

The slightly less than 8,000 square feet of gleaming interiors feature glass pocket doors that slide open to views of the cityscape. A home theater, a bar, an office, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms are among the living spaces. Many rooms face an interior courtyard.

The third-acre site has extensive patio/deck space, a lawn and an infinity edge swimming pool with a spa.

An underground parking garage can accommodate six cars.

The brothers co-founded HarvardConnection, which was later named ConnectU. They received a $65-million cash-and-stock settlement in 2008 over claims that Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea to create Facebook.

They have since turned to venture capitalism, focusing on bitcoins. The Winklevoss twins had planned to use the residence for their venture capital headquarters, reported Variety.

Christopher Dyson of the Agency is the leasing agent.
