Superstar Marilyn Monroe’s Former Brentwood Home Listed for $6.9 Million


The Brentwood home owned by Marilyn Monroe just before she died — which was also where the late actress’ dead body was found — is on the market for $6.9 million. Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac on Helena Drive, the 2,624-square-foot hacienda-style home was originally built in 1929. Monroe had only owned the home for a few months before she was found dead in 1962 of an apparent overdose of barbiturates at the age of 36.

The gated home has a pool, a citrus grove and a guesthouse. The home itself has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and sits on the largest land parcel of all of the Helena streets in Brentwood.
