Mischa Barton's Spanish-style home is back on the market -- this time as a rental for $35,000 a month. Best known for her role as Marissa Cooper on the hit TV show "The O.C." in the mid-2000s, Barton bought the Beverly Hills, Calif., home in 2005 for $6.4 million. Just five years later, she stuck it on the market for $8.695 million. With no buyers, she tried listing it again in 2011. Now after a brief respite, she's trying the rental route to get the home off her hands.

The vine-covered home is situated in the gated neighborhood of Bowmont Estates in Beverly Glen. Measuring 7,607 square feet, the house has eight bedrooms, four of which include en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has dual bathrooms, a fireplace and dressing room. The landscaped grounds include a pool, spa, grassy yard and vine-covered patio. Following the success of "The O.C.," Barton has starred in a number of small films, including "Closing the Ring" and "Virgin Territories."
