Today’s Dream Home is the luxe Los Angeles home where Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe was found dead. Currently for sale, the Spanish-style four-bedroom home, listed at $3.6 million, is located in the high-end Brentwood suburb and was the only home the blond actress ever owned, according to RealEstalker.com. The listing, which went up today on David Offer of Prudential California Realty’s website, sparked instant reaction from potential buyers, as some were spotted waiting outside the gate to get a tour of the home today.
Sprawling and very special authentic 1929 Hacienda situated behind tall gates at the end of a quiet cul de sac on over 23,000 square feet (per assessor) of tree-filled grounds. The crown jewel and largest property of all the Helenas (one of Brentwood’s most romantic and coveted locations) affording lovely vistas and great privacy & seclusion yet in close proximity to San Vicente shops & restaurants and the Sunday Farmer’s Market. Thick walls, traditional casement windows, polished concrete and terra cotta tile floors, original wood beamed ceilings and period hardware & tiles create a warm, inviting and unique environment. French doors open to private courtyard, expansive grassy yard, pool, citrus grove & beautiful setting. Four bedrooms, three baths plus formal living room, family room, office, pool-side game room and separate children’s play house. Sun-filled cook’s kitchen opens to spacious courtyard garden. Wonderful charm and great architecture inside and out. Magical property in the finest Brentwood neighborhood.
