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, Realtor.com 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. [Realtor.com] – Gregory Cornfield
