The famous Marilyn Monroe Home for Sale in Los Angeles

I was reading a very interesting article about a property for sale in Los Angeles U.S. in The Real Estates Bloggers. The mystique of Marilyn Monroe still resonates through American culture. The bleach blonde actress whose personality and looks enchanted generations and inspired passionate interest from both men and woman died in 1962 in her Los Angeles home.

.

 Today this final home of Marilyn Monroe is for sale for the price of 3.6 million dollars. The home is located in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles on 5th Helena Drive. This elegant 4 bedroom, 3 baths home can be yours for the price of 3.600.00 dollars.

..

Considering that memorabilia is traded at amazing prices, Marilyn Monroe is an iconic figure in American lore. The home, as a home, is a nice home. However, as the ultimate piece of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia, it is probably priced at a bargain compared to other items that have sold.

.

Built in 1929, the property, for which Monroe paid $75,000, featured lush gardens, a kidney-shaped pool, a small, detached guest house and a garage. Arched doorways, cathedral beamed ceilings and deep-sill Spanish windows with iron gratings completed the effect.

Monroe was taken with the house from her first visit, according to an account in “Cursum Perficio: Marilyn Monroe’s Brentwood Hacienda,” by Gary Vitacco-Robles.

Eunice Murray, who became the housekeeper, recalled that Monroe studied and memorized every detail, brick by brick. She liked the house’s simplicity, privacy and sturdy construction, and its lived-in aura.

Monroe would renovate the outmoded kitchen, installing a Hotpoint refrigerator (which Schreiner now owns) and yellow-and-blue tiles that framed the stove’s sides and continued along the wall to create a large splash board.
