Marilyn Monroe’s House (Where She Died!) For Sale!

The Spanish colonial revival house in Brentwood where Marilyn Monroe died of a sleeping-pill overdose in 1962 is for sale for $3.6 million, according to a realty website.

The rambling four-bedroom, three-bathroom house on 5th Helena Drive features thick walls, casement windows, polished concrete and terra cotta tile floors, original wood beamed ceilings and period hardware and tiles.

Built in 1929, the “hacienda” and pool sit on 23,000 square feet of tree-filled grounds, according to the website of David Offer, with Prudential California Realty.

The listing was first reported by Curbed LA, a website that tracks commercial and residential real estate news.

The house stands behind tall gates at the end of a cul de sac. Offer’s website describes it as: “The crown jewel and largest property of all the Helenas (one of Brentwood’s most romantic and coveted locations) affording lovely vistas and great privacy & seclusion yet in close proximity to San Vicente shops & restaurants and the Sunday Farmer’s Market.”
