Janusz Kaminski’s Pricey Beverly Hills Compound Is Available for Rent (EXCLUSIVE)

Celebrated cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, known for his frequent and successful collaborations with Steven Spielberg, has an exceptionally private compound in a particularly plummy pocket of Beverly Hills available as a super-luxe rental at $40,000 per month. The Polish-born cinematographer —who has been nominated for six Oscars and has won two, for “Schindler’s List” and “Saving Private Ryan” — purchased the 1.12-acre spread in 1996 for just over $2.1 million, shortly after he married his first wife, actress Holly Hunter.

Electronic security gates open to a long driveway that passes under a dense canopy of trees as it makes its way to the main residence of the multi-winged 1920s Spanish-style home, which has been made over in a contemporary manner. The nearly 5,000-square-foot house has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, plus a playroom/office with a separate entrance. A comfortably ample living room with high ceiling has a fireplace and steel-trimmed glass doors, and the skylit combination kitchen and family room opens to an outdoor living room with kiva-style corner fireplace that leads to a swimming pool and spa.

A detached one-bedroom and one-bathroom guesthouse dates to the 1920s and offers self-contained seclusion, with living room and full kitchen. A third structure — a partially subterranean contemporary pavilion with a drought-tolerant green roof, was built as an office/media lounge, with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a long wall of glass sliders.

Property records indicate that Kaminski and his second ex-wife, former ABC reporter and producer Rebecca Rankin, continue to co-own a charming and relatively modest, if not exactly inexpensive, Craftsman-style residence on a palm-tree-lined block in Venice, purchased in 2011 for a bit less than $2 million.
