Click to Play the video, and then check out the gallery above while you listen to the tale! I found even more photos after creating the video so we’ve got rare photos from the past TWO times the gorgeous house was listed. 👍
Take a look inside the last home of the film star Marilyn Monroe. She never allowed photographers in her house while she lived there (I’ll get into that more in the video!), so these photos of her Brentwood, California house used to list the property by Mercer Vine are incredibly rare sights!
The house sold June 2017 for 7.25 Million, 350 thousand over its asking price, after just 10 days on the market.
It’s easy to see why Marilyn was making this Spanish Hacienda style house her dream home. Built in 1929, the secluded house at 12305 5th Helena Drive sat with a pool and guest house on a half acre behind a gate she selected herself and fruit trees.
Upon the last sale of the house, it also sold for well over the asking price. The $3,595,000 asking price, ended up soaring to $3.85 million. Again, it sold within two weeks! The last recorded sale I discovered was in 1996 for $925,000. What a steal!!
Fun fact not in the video!! Old Hollywood Actor Dick Hunter once owned the home before Marilyn. I couldn’t find a photo of him, but here is his IMDB page. Just be grateful I was the one combing through Google search results for “Dick Hunter” for you guys.
Interestingly, though he was born in 1875 he also passed away in 1962 like Marilyn.
Yes, this was the house Marilyn spent the very last months of her life in, making the place home with decor she ordered from a trip to Mexico. You can still see the Mexican tile she selected around the fireplace! She was allegedly thrilled to be decorating her place & was making arrangements for shipments up until her death.
