A house in Hollywood Hills where one of the biggest celebrity couples got their start is on the market.

The Spanish Revival abode housed a famous tenant, starlet Marilyn Monroe, in the 1950s over the course of her relationship with her second husband, Yankee slugger Joe DiMaggio, reported. In January 1953, her monthly rent was $237.82. Now, the 8,230-square-foot lot on Castilian Drive near the Outpost Estates is listed for almost $2.7 million.


The home includes four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and 3,335 square feet of living space. The kitchen has been remodeled since Monroe moved out, but original features include vaulted wood-beam ceilings, a tile roof, plaster walls with arched doorways, tile floors, balconies and terraces. The sellers, who bought the home in July for $2.2 million, were planning a major renovation, but changed their minds.


The Hollywood pop culture legend moved there in 1952 while she was starting a relationship with the Hall of Fame outfielder who was married to another woman at the time. Monroe and freshly-divorced DiMaggio got married in 1954 before they split later that year. They remained friends until the movie star’s death less than a decade later.

In 1962, Monroe moved into a 2,624-square-foot home on Helena Drive in Brentwood where she died later that year at the age of 36. [] – Gregory Cornfield
