Step Inside Marilyn Monroe's Iconic Former L.A. Home

You likely saw via the many Instagram tributes going around that Marilyn Monroe would have turned 91 just a few days ago. The iconic actress and poster child for Hollywood glamour owned only one home in her time in Los Angeles—sadly, the home she passed away in—and that home just sold for $7 million (USD).

The Hacienda-style Brentwood property has had several owners since Monroe, but according to its broker and WWD, it still retains design elements personally selected by Monroe. 

The 2624-square-foot house was built in 1929 in a gated cul-de-sac area and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, an expansive yard, a pool, and a guesthouse. Given that the actress was famously private in her off-duty life, it's a bit surreal to get a peek at the grounds and walls within which she lived.

Step inside Monroe's former property below (you can see the rest of the images on WWD), and tell us which part is your favourite in the comments!
