WeHo Compound Where Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe Once Lived

According to its listing, this Doheny Drive residence was once home to Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe (though not at the same time--hoo boy, what a paparazzi pile-up that would've been). Originally a five-apartment complex, the 1952 building was purchased in the eighties by award-winning Turkish-born interior designer Kalef Alaton, who gutted and remodeled the space into two units, which are now available for lease together or separately. Per the listing, the main house has "floor to ceiling glass doors, high ceilings, 5 fireplaces, 2 bedrooms- master up with luxurious bath and guest down, zen like courtyards and airy patio," while "the smaller unit has a fireplace, kitchenette, high ceilings and spacious terrace for outdoor entertaining." Monthly rent is $7,500 for the entire compound, or $2,500 for the smaller (648 square feet) unit.
