A Florida 2.94-acre lakefront estate where Marilyn Monroe once was a guest has entered the market for $725,000. Situated on Lake Geneva with 200 feet of private beachfront, the property includes a main residence, separate studio/home office, and a carriage house.
Marilyn Monroe once visited the estate, reportedly having stayed in the upstairs master suite as a guest of the original owners, the Bridges family.
The current owner has documentation of this event and has adorned the guest room — which still includes its signature pink bath — with some memorabilia in honor of the iconic actress.
Despite the home’s storied past, it has been customized with numerous modern upgrades. The over 4,500-square-foot main residence features six bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths and hardwood floors throughout its open floor plan.
Additional appointments include ceilings and walls paneled in Florida cypress, as well as an updated gourmet chef’s kitchen, four fireplaces, custom moldings and designer cabinetry.
A sun porch with 30 feet of glass doors overlooks the tranquil lake. The outdoor, lakefront living area boasts a gazebo and multi-layer deck.
The separate 255-square-foot studio/home office is finished with vaulted ceilings, fireplace and half bath. In addition, a 320-square-foot carriage house is equipped with a kitchen,bedroom and full bath. Framed by mature foliage, the property is a private retreat.
This property is listed exclusively by Janet Scott and Maude Leclerc of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Southwest Orlando office.
