Rent Marilyn Monroe's Apartment in WeHo's Romanesque Villa

New, 10 comments


Leaping out from Craigslist today is an ad with the headline "MARILYN MONROE LIVED IN THIS APARTMENT...NOW IT'S YOUR TURN!!!" The apartment in question would be in West Hollywood's Romanesque Villa, a Spanish Revival complex on North Harper Avenue designed by Leland Bryant in 1928. According to many biographies, the blonde bombshell roomed in the complex with her acting coach, Natasha Lytess, on and off between 1950 and 1951. Should you want to do the same, it'll cost you: per the ad, the two-bedroom, one-bath unit is available for a monthly rent of $3,500.
