MARILYN MONROE SUPPOSEDLY LIVED IN THIS SPANISH-STYLE HOME, AND IT’S UP ON THE MARKET!
That’s right, we’ve discovered that this sprawling estate in Sherman Oaks, California has just hit the market with a whopping price tag of $5.475 million, and you’ll never believe the Hollywood connection that it comes with!
The Spanish-style home once belonged to Ray Anthony, a Jazz musician and the last surviving member of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, which was one of the most popular big-bands back in the 40s-50s.
Interestingly, it is rumored that Anthony had a romantic affiliation with the actress Marilyn Monroe, who (if you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know about) was one of the leading actresses of the 50s and early 60s. Word on the street is that Monroe also lived in the Spanish-style home with him for a while. Only recently, however, in 2018, the now 98-year-old Anthony attempted to clear these rumors by saying that the two had always been “just friends”- we’re not sure if we believe that, though.
Suppositions aside, what’s known for a fact is that in 1952, Anthony threw a huge, star-studded party in honor of Marilyn Monroe in the house! How many people do that for “just friends”? Moreover, besides Anthony and Monroe, the property’s estate agent tells us that over the years, the house has welcomed many other a-list guests like Sharon Stone, Quincy Jones, and Gene Simmons.
The mansion is expansive, containing a total of 5 bedrooms in the main house, and three extra bedrooms in the guest cottage. The half-acre residence has a stucco exterior and terra-cotta tiles on the roof. Classic, right?
In the main house, a few of the rooms are designed with eclectic décor- including the kitchen, which features gorgeous distressed wooden cabinets. The main living area is fully decorated with earth tones. It also features a complex patterned bar area, with eye-catching upholstery on the walls, and a spiral metal staircase that leads to the second floor, where you will find two bedrooms and the master suite.
There are floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the pool deck, which has red bricks all over, and a staircase that leads to the upper portion.
One of the most exciting things about this house is that people have reportedly felt Marilyn Monroe’s presence in it. We know the claims are baseless, and it could be pure superstition- but still! We think it’s quite fascinating- don’t you?
