Live Lavishly Like Howard Hughes

Howard Hughes is remembered for many things--his eccentricity, wealth, and aviation successes. Today, instead of just remembering the reclusive man, you can live like him in this mid-century modern home, located in the prestigious Trousdale Estates enclave of L.A. The property, which is available to rent for $22,500 per month, is "said to have been owned" by the renowned business magnate, says the listing agent (via Realtor.com). The steep price even includes all of the furnishings.
