BRENTWOOD—A Spanish-style home in Brentwood once owned by actress Marilyn Monroe is back on the market for $6.9 million.
The 2,097 square-foot home was built in 1929 and consists of 1/2 an acre. The one-story home includes two bedrooms, a guest house and a pool and features tiled floors, arched entryways, pitched ceilings with exposed wood beams, and a kitchen. The Brentwood establishment was the first home the actress ever owned.
According to Variety, Monroe paid between $67,000 to $90,000 for the home. Monroe passed away in her bedroom four months after buying the property in 1962, after getting divorced from Arthur Miller. The listing agent for the home is Lisa Optican.
Monroe got her start in the industry as a model, and later transitioned to film with a role in “Dangerous Years.” She also starred in the films “All About Eve,” “Don’t Bother to Knock,” “Monkey Business,” “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” “The Seven Year Itch” and “Some Like It Hot.” The actress was found dead in her bedroom from an apparent overdose from sleeping pills.
