Marilyn Monroe’s NYC Townhouse Up For Rent
Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe’s luxurious Upper East Side sanctuary is now up for rent, and it could be yours for a whopping $27,500 a month.
The breathtaking four-story building, complete with four gorgeous bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, offers the perfect little slice of Old Hollywood glam in the midst of New York City. Built in 1899 and once owned by famous fashion photographer and Monroe’s good friend, Milton Greene, this 3,500-square-foot space on 127 East 78th street features five fireplaces, intricate decorative wallpaper, gloriously high ceilings and a grand marble staircase.
Full of over-the-top character and striking charm, it’s easy to see why Monroe couldn’t resist making this sophisticated townhouse her home-away-from-home while she was in the Big Apple. If only these walls could talk! See inside the infamous star’s home and tell us what you think of it in the comments below.
The incredible 3,500-square-foot property is just a short walk from Central Park in an Upper East Side neighbourhood that’s full of elegant luxury shops and fine dining cafes.
The four-bedroom pad is fitted with a steam shower and large Jacuzzi tub. It’s been revamped over the years, but still oozes Old Hollywood glamour.
Vibrant colours and a checkerboard patterned kitchen floor bring a hit of modern luxe to the opulent space.
All the contemporary necessities — central air and heating, a separate laundry room on the lower level — live in perfect harmony with traditional details such as high ceilings and lavish fireplace mantels.
Nestled in the picturesque home is a European-style terrace that’s perfect for relaxing away from the hustle-bustle of the city.
Can’t you just picture Marilyn descending from the top of this grand marble staircase in a to-die-for ball gown?
