Marilyn Monroe's Brentwood Home For Sale at $3.6 Million

By
Real Estate Agent with Windermere Real Estate - Palm Springs CalBRE# 01339266

Via The LA Times I discovered that the Brentwood home where Marilyn Monroe passed away has been listed For Sale at $3.6 Million.

The property last sold for $925,000 in 1996 and had previously changed hands in 1986 for $850,000.

The home at 12305 5th Helena Drive in Brentwood, CA 90049 is the only home the actress ever owned. She lived in the house for 6 months before her death.

According to The MLS "the home is an authentic 1929 Hacienda situated behind tall gates at the end of a quiet cul de sac. The 2600 sq ft home has 4 Beds and 3 Baths and features traditional casement windows, polished concrete & terra cotta tile floors & original wood beamed ceilings".

Monroe had purchased the home in 1962 for $90,000, and had been set to make mortgage payments at $320 a month. (Property Taxes on the current List Price would be approximately $3750 per month).

The property is listed by David Offer of Prudential California Realty, with photos by Lee Manning.

Stewart- I love this home, and loved Marilyn Monroe.  It looks as if the subsequent owners have done a beautiful job of keeping it up.  I could just live by the pool.

Stewart, you are our connection to celebrity homes for sale :) I just read an article in Vanity Fair a couple of days ago about Marilyn's papers and belongings that were in this home and what happened to some of them.  How great to see photos of the actual house!
