The $6.9-Million Itch: Marilyn Monroe's Final Home Goes on the Market
Home-seekers who would like to feel closer to the late Marilyn Monroe have a rare opportunity to do just that — by purchasing the home in which she died.
According to Curbed Los Angeles, the Spanish-style home in Brentwood, California, where Monroe passed away in 1962 is currently on the market for a cool $6.9 million. (Sounds so much more affordable than $7 million, right?)
The gorgeous property (filled with citrus trees, a guest house, and a pool) was built in 1929. The 2,097-s.f. main house has tiled floors, plenty of arches, exposed beams and an updated kitchen.
The house was the only property owned by the glamorous actress, one of the most famous women who ever lived, and she was only able to enjoy it for a few months before overdosing on prescription drugs.
Monroe originally paid somewhere between $75,000 and $90,000 for the abode back in the day, meaning it is now worth at least 76 times what she paid.
