For just a little under seven million and you can own a piece of Hollywood history: the Los Angeles home that 1950s sex symbol Marilyn Monroe lived and, tragically, died in.

Listed at $6.9 million, the 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom hacienda is “[p]rivately and securely situated at the end of an itty-bitty cul-de-sac behind a high wall, secured gate and canopy of trees,” Variety magazine reported Friday.

“Renovated, updated and expanded over the years by the various owners, the residence retains a number of original architectural details such as thick white stucco walls, casement windows, some fitted with wrought iron grills, terra-cotta tile floors, Gothic arch doorways, and vaulted, exposed wood ceilings,” the Hollywood trade magazine noted.

Reports conflict as to the exact dollar figure, but Monroe purchased the 2,600 square foot property in early 1962 for as much as $90,000, Variety said. In 2017 dollars, the equivalent is a little over $726,500. She lived in the home just a few months until her untimely death in August from a drug overdose.
