If you have $7 million burning a hole in your pocket, Marilyn Monroe’s house could be yours.

The beautiful Spanish-style home at 12305 5th Helena Drive in Brentwood, Calif., is back on the market for $6.9 million — a far cry from the $75,000 to $90,000 Monroe reportedly paid for it. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a guest house, a pool, and an updated kitchen.

The house was built in 1929. It was the only home Monroe ever owned; she moved in just four months before her 1962 death — and yes, she died in one of the bedrooms.

Shortly before she passed away, Monroe told a “Life” magazine reporter, “Anybody who likes my house, I am sure I will get along with.” We can definitely see why she loved it!
