If you’re going to be under house arrest, this Tribeca rental is the place to do it.

This $50,000 a month rental home in New York City was where Dominic Strauss-Kahn spent four months after he was accused of sexually abusing a hotel maid.

The former chairman of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the French politician was pulled off a plane and charged with assault last May. Charges were dropped last month when it was discovered that the maid lied about her background. However, Strauss-Kahn’s troubles appear to be far from over; a French writer has accused him of trying to rape her in 2003.

Now that he’s has returned to France, Strauss-Kahn’s townhome is available for rent September 15. One of the premier Tribeca rentals, it reportedly caught the eye of NY Yankee star Alex Rodriguez and girlfriend Cameron Diaz.

The three-story, 5,000 square-foot townhouse was built in 1915 but recently underwent a top to bottom renovation by architect Leopoldo Rosati. The bottom floor features a state-of-the-art movie theater, gym and spa with steam bath, limestone radiant-heated floors throughout and a high-end kitchen. Antique French floors are throughout the remaining floors of the home as well as new windows, custom staircases and extensive security.

The master bedroom occupies the third floor and has a wet bar, his-and-her walk-in closets and dressing rooms, and a limestone bath and dual rainfall steam shower.

The home was previously listed for $13,995,000 and according to the New York Daily News, is still available for sale.
