You could always buy Zeta Graff's Bel Air compound for $8,880,000 (it's been on the market since April) -- or, now, you can simply rent it for a mere $35,000 a month.

Graff -- a jewelry designer, Graff Diamonds heiress, and actress (she played the velvet-clad Princess Achen in "The Fifth Element") -- bought the home in 2004 for $4.4 million, according to The Wall Street Journal. Now, with her son on his way to London and her own move to New York, she's leaving the house behind for a lucky renter.

The four-bedroom modernist home, designed by Los Angeles architect Zoltan Pali, features 30-foot ceilings and full-height windows overlooking canyons and reservoirs. The compound's two separate buildings are linked by a sky bridge made of wood, steel, and glass.

The bedrooms feel just as ethereal, with large windows and balconies for taking in the California air. The enormous master bath features a shower roomy enough for two -- it even has a spout on each end -- and large countertops with his-and-her sinks.

It's a perfect place to wind down after a busy L.A. day -- and we're busy looking under the cushions for a spare $35,000.
