Marilyn purchased the 1929 Spanish revival home in 1962 for a whopping $90,000.  Located in the luxurious Helenas in Brentwood, the house recently sold for $3.6 million.  While much of that price may have to do with the history and celebrity-like nature of the house, it is certainly a very gorgeous property.

According to the original real estate listing, the sprawling Hacienda is “situated behind tall gates at the end of a quiet cul de sac on over 23,000 square feet…of tree-filled grounds” and has “French doors that open to private courtyard, expansive grassy yard, pool, citrus grove & beautiful setting”.

It sounds beautiful, but as facts have it, this peaceful retreat-like property has caused  much controversy surround it’s inheritance. Monroe’s effect’s were auctioned off by the world famous Christie’s, to the tune of $13,405,785. But that didn’t include the property.  In July of 2010, the house was finally put on the market by Prudential Realty Company, and sold for  $3.6 million.

Although the house has been sold, it is still a site worth seeing.  But visitors beware – according to LA Curbed, the owners aren’t the most appreciative of endless Marilyn fans trying to snap a picture.  Below, we offer you a glimpse at the lifestyle of a legendary, old Hollywood icon. The home is incredibly charming and very beautiful, but wouldn’t its history and daily trespassers be a bit overwhelming?
