Marilyn Monroe’s former penthouse hits the market

Marilyn Monroe’s former penthouse hits the market

A penthouse condo that was once the home of Marilyn Monroe has hit the market for $USD 2.49 million ($AUD 3.39 or $NZD 3.52).

Sitting on the top floor of Hollywood’s famed Granville Towers, the condo has dazzling views of West Hollywood that can be seen through its floor-to-ceiling windows.

The 188-square-metre apartment is split across two storeys, connected by a curved staircase.

It also features hardwood floors throughout, vaulted ceilings, and a formal dining room with its own chandelier.

The kitchen has been remodelled and now features Venetian plaster walls, stainless-steel cabinetry, and luxury appliances.

The apartment also comes with access to building amenities including a clubhouse, pool and spa, a courtyard and garden, and a 24-hour Doorman.

Granville Towers was built almost a century ago by Los Angeles architect Leland Bryant in collaboration with Samuel Coine.

Monroe lived in the penthouse in 1954, following her separation from baseball player Joe DiMaggio.

A year later, she left the Hollywood condo after marrying playwright Arthur Miller.

But, Monroe isn’t the only celebrity to call the Granville Towers apartment home. The current owners purchased it in 2003 from former actress Portia de Rossi, who has since married Ellen DeGeneres.
