Updated Thursday, June 1, 2017 at 3:43 p.m.: The first and last home owned by Hollywood siren Marilyn Monroe has been scooped up for $7.25 million, or $325,000 over its asking price.

The Brentwood estate on Helena Drive hit the market in April asking $6.9 million.

Built in 1929, the hacienda-style house was purchased by Monroe in 1962, following the end of her third marriage to playwright Arthur Miller, for $750,000, the Los Angeles Times reported. The actress, singer and model lived there until her death that same year, aged 36.

The 2,624-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. A guest house and a small citrus grove fill the half-acre grounds, according to the L.A. Times.
