Winklevoss twins put their Bird Streets home back up for lease at $110,000 a month

LA Times September, 2015

Internet entrepreneurs Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss have their home in Hollywood Hills West back up for long-term lease — this time at $110,000 a month. The contemporary two-story had been priced earlier this year at $150,000.

It’s been a busy week for the brothers, who also announced the launch of their new Bitcoin exchange, Gemini Trust Co.

Their L.A. home has slightly less than 8,000 square feet of interior space with glass pocket doors that slide open to take in the cityscape views and a courtyard. A home theater, a bar, an office, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms are among the living spaces, which extend outdoors to patios and decks.

Lawn and an infinity-edge swimming pool with a spa complete the one-third grounds.

There’s underground parking for four cars.

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

The twins, who are 34, paid $18 million in 2012 for the property in the so-called “Bird Streets” area.

Denise Moreno of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, is the leasing agent.
