Marilyn Monroe’s Home For Sale
Want to own a piece of Hollywood history? The only home that Marilyn Monroe owned by herself is for sale in Southern California Brentwood, CA.
The listing for the 4 bedroom 3 bath calls it “A Rare Hidden Jewel In Brentwood”. And he is not kidding. This home is gorgeous, but not massive like most of the Hollywood star homes that you now find in the Los Angeles area. This is probably the most visited listing that the agent, David Offer Fine Homes, has had in a long time.
Sprawling and very special authentic 1929 Hacienda situated behind tall gates at the end of a quiet cul de sac on over 23,000 square feet (per assessor) of tree-filled grounds. The crown jewel and largest property of all the Helenas (one of Brentwood’s most romantic and coveted locations) affording lovely vistas and great privacy & seclusion yet in close proximity to San Vicente shops & restaurants and the Sunday Farmer’s Market. Thick walls, traditional casement windows, polished concrete and terra cotta tile floors, original wood beamed ceilings and period hardware & tiles create a warm, inviting and unique environment. French doors open to private courtyard, expansive grassy yard, pool, citrus grove & beautiful setting. Four bedrooms, three baths plus formal living room, family room, office, pool-side game room and separate children’s play house. Sun-filled cook’s kitchen opens to spacious courtyard garden. Wonderful charm and great architecture inside and out. Magical property in the finest Brentwood neighborhood.
Marilyn bout this “Hacidenda” at the behest of her therapist at the time. He suggested that in order for her to get a better hold on her life that she “set down roots” and she chose those beautiful home.
