Here’s your chance to be Richard Gere’s neighbor for the summer — this 4,500-square-foot summer rental retreat is right up the block from the acclaimed actor’s sprawling North Haven estate, a home that is back on the market following a second price cut.

Rent for the month of July is $50,000, and August to Labor Day is $60,000.

The five-bedroom, 4 1⁄2 -bath Postmodern is on a bit more than an acre filled with lush greenery.

“The landscaping really brings the house to life,” says listing agent Kathleen Zappola of Compass Realty. View the landscape from a deck or a covered stone patio, which overlook the heated 20-by-40-foot saltwater pool.

Inside, the kitchen includes an eight-burner Wolf range with a double oven and two kitchen islands, Zappola says. There is also a solarium, a TV den/library and a finished lower-level multipurpose recreation space.

High-end finishes throughout the house include cathedral ceilings, and hardwood and tile floors.

Gere owns nearby Strongheart Manor, a 19,000-square-foot, 12-bedroom, 12-bath estate on 6.3 acres dating back to 1902, when it was built for actor Robert Edeson, star of Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Call of the North.” The “Margaritaville” singer Jimmy Buffett, who also owns a home here, introduced Gere to the area, Zappola says.

Following an initial $65 million listing and subsequent cut to $47.5 million, Gere’s place is back on the market with an asking price of $36.5 million, according to a listing by Susan Breintenbach of The Corcoran Group.
