Update 6/2/17: An undisclosed buyer has the lovely Spanish-style home where Marilyn Monroe lived and died, reports Daily Mail.
The sale closed Wednesday for $7.25 million, $350,000 above asking price, and just one day before what would have been the legend's 91st birthday.
The gorgeous 2,624-square-foot home, first listed in April, wasn't on the market long, selling in less than 10 days, according to listing agency Mercer Vine.
Built in 1929, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence features a guest house, citrus trees, and a pool. It was the the singer, actress and model owned independently, reports the Los Angeles Times. She bought the home in the early 1960s after the end of her third marriage to playwright Arthur Miller.
Sadly, it's also where Monroe was found dead in 1962, just four months after she had purchased the property.
Originally 4/21/17: If you've always dreamed of living like an Old Hollywood starlet, look no further than , the former Brentwood, California home of silver screen siren Marilyn Monroe.
The 2,624-square-foot hacienda style home, which is now for sale for $6.9 million, was built in 1929, and contains four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a pool, guest house and spacious yard.
A few weeks before her death in 1962, Monroe invited "Life" magazine into the home for an interview about fame. The journalist , " It was a small, three-bedroom house built in Mexican style, the first home entirely her own she had ever had. She exulted in it. On a special trip to Mexico she had carefully searched in roadside stands and shops and even factories to find just the right things to put in it. The large items had not arrived — nor was she ever to see them installed. As she led me through the rooms, bare and makeshift as though someone lived there only temporarily, she described with loving excitement each couch and table and dresser, where it would go and what was special about it.” Monroe even went on to say in the interview, “Anybody who likes my house, I'm sure I'll get along with.”
Located at the end of a cul-de-sac behind, the home has a romantic, serene feel, with rare privacy in the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. In contrast, the home is shrouded in the tragedy that unfolded there when Monroe's body was found after her drug overdose at the age of 36, according to
Since then, various owners have made adjustments to the property (including adding the fourth bedroom) but undoubtedly loved it as much as Monroe did.
