A Spanish-style home that once belonged to iconic blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe is back on the market for $6.9 million.
Tucked in a cul-de-sac in the exclusive Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, the single-floor home boasts four bedrooms and three bathrooms on 2,624 square feet. Standout features include beamed ceilings and terra cotta tile floors, as well as a pool near a grassy yard and citrus orchard. The listing is held by Lisa Optican of Mercer Vine.
Born Norma Jeane Mortenso in Los Angeles in 1926, Monroe grew up in foster families and married her first husband at 16. She later married baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, followed by playwright Arthur Miller.
Monroe took her last breath in the home's bedroom at the age of 36. She was discovered dead of a drug overdose on Aug. 5, 1962. Just three months earlier, she had famously sung a sultry rendition of "Happy Birthday" for President John F. Kennedy.
At the time of her death, the Los Angeles Times reported that Monroe had purchased the home for $75,000. Take a look at the home and Monroe over the years:
