Novelist Karl Taro Greenfeld is putting his Pacific Palisades home up for lease at $6,500 a month.


The Cape Cod-inspired single-story house, built in 1948, contains three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,000 square feet of living space. The gated writer's retreat and family home includes a swimming pool.

Greenfield is moving back to his loft in Tribeca, which is where his upcoming novel, "Triburbia," is set. His previous book, "Boy Alone," is a memoir about growing up in Pacific Palisades with his autistic brother.

Ian L. Brooks of Prudential California Realty is the listing agent.
