Marilyn Monroe’s West Hollywood home lists for $2.49M

If you want to live in a condominium where Marilyn Monroe once lived, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny.

The Old Hollywood actress briefly stayed in the penthouse of Granville Towers after her divorce from New York Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio in 1954, and now the condo is up for sale with a $2.49 million asking price.

This luxurious two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo has been listed by Amanda Lynn, Gina Michelle and George Ouzounian from The Agency – a full-service real estate brokerage and lifestyle company.

The most notable home feature would have to be the unit’s floor-to-ceiling skylight windows and built-in window seats, which offer expansive city and mountain views that can be seen while lounging. If entertaining is a must, the two-level condo includes a formal dining room with a “dazzling” chandelier.

Monroe’s former residence also offers gated living security and amenities with a 24-hour doorman, exclusive clubhouse, courtyard, garden, pool and spa and garage.

“The perfect match to 1424 N. Crescent Heights Penthouse 78 is a discerning buyer who can appreciate the historical and architectural significance while living the true Hollywood experience,”  a joint statement from Lynn, Michelle and Ouzounian said, which was sent to FOX Business Monday afternoon.

The real estate brokerage notes that other celebrities have lived in the condo after Monroe. The current owner reportedly purchased the condo from Portia De Rossi – Ellen DeGeneres’s wife – in 2003, according to the New York Post. Sale records on Redfin show the penthouse unit sold for $860,000 that year.
