Marilyn Monroe is among a handful of stars who died young and to this day, her alleged suicide in the bedroom of her home in August 1962 has been met with more questions, than answers. And now, that home where Monroe died is for sale for $3,595,000.
The house had virtually no storage cupboards so Marilyn’s books, scripts, records and magazines were stored in corners of a room. The kitchen had wooden cupboards and a red brick floor, with tiles on the walls, and Marilyn had a blue refrigerator. The living room had pure wool carpeting which was white, a tile fireplace and this room had pure white walls. Marilyn had purchased a leaded copper mirror, which was displayed on the wall of the Dining Room. Marilyn’s house had three bedrooms and these were split into one for Marilyn, one for Mrs Murray (her housekeeper) and one was used as a telephone room.
The home is tucked away on a narrow parcel at the end of a cul-de-sac and has had several owners since her death, which is captured in this detailed post by Real Estalker.
