Marilyn Monroe’s old House For Sale

I picked up this story on Hooked on Houses.

Marilyn Monroe would be in her 80’s today. The uber star died at the tender age of 36 nearly 5 decades ago. She was found dead in the bedroom of her modest Brentwood Los Angeles bungalow. The house is still considered a shrine for fans because it was the last house she lived in. The current owners have put it on the market which is big news in Hollywood.

The house was previously often sold through the grapevine only so it’s been a while since we were allowed a glimpse inside.

The Spanish Revival home was built in 1929.  It’s not too big, with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and about 2,600 square feet, and has a very modest feel to it. This was exactly what appealed to Mrs Monroe when she bought it shortly before she died for $90,000. It looks like from a picture book and oozes charm and comfort.I love it as it reminds me of a lovely little Bed & Breakfast in Palm Springs we once stayed in

The house is currently on the market for $3,595,000. That is quite steep but the area is very exclusive and neighbours are Hollywood stars like Roseanne, Jim Carrey, Ben Affleck & Jennifer Gardner and Cindy Crawford.

Another sitting room. Looks like this could be the window the black and white portrait above was taken in.

Loving the movie-lie kitchen

The realtors website is very hush-hush about it, but surely gets quite a few extra clicks.
