The lovely Spanish-style home in Brentwood where Marilyn Monroe lived and died has sold for $7.25 million.
The sale closed Wednesday, one day before what would have been the star’s 91st birthday. Monroe died in the two-bedroom house in 1962, just four months after she bought it. Though she lived all over Southern California, it was the only home she ever purchased.
The 23,200-square-foot property, which features a guest house, citrus trees, and a pool, was put up for sale in April with an asking price of $6.9 million. The buyer was not disclosed.
Built in 1929, the one-story main house is bedecked with tiled floors, arched entryways, pitched ceilings with exposed wood beams, and a newer kitchen. Listing agent Lisa Optican has described it as retaining, “many of the design elements selected by Monroe.”
