Marilyn Monroe’s last home, tucked away on a cul-de-sac on Helena Drive behind a canopy of trees, is up for grabs.

The property’s current owner listed the Brentwood estate for $6.9 million.

Monroe bought the home in 1962 and lived there until her death that same year, aged 36.

At the time of the purchase, the screen icon told Life Magazine that she had personally chosen the property, which was the only one she ever owned.

The 2,624-square-foot hacienda, at 12305 5th Helena Drive, was built in 1929 and features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, original beamed ceilings and casement windows throughout.

“The property is the largest parcel of all the Helenas and has an expansive yard,” said listing agent Lisa Optican of Mercer Vine.

The property last changed hands in 2012 in an off-market deal for $5.1 million, according to Optican. Property records list the owner as a Donna Kaplan.
