Marilyn Monroe’s Ultra-Glamorous West Hollywood Penthouse Apartment Landed on the Market for $2.2 Million — See Inside!

This is not a drill, Marilyn Monroe’s former penthouse apartment located in West Hollywood is on the market, and it’s gorgeous. Located below the Sunset Strip, this apartment is going up for $2.2 million, and since it has over 2,000 square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, we don’t think it’ll last long on the market.

The stunning spot has quite a Hollywood history. Monroe moved into this penthouse following her divorce from Joe DiMaggio in 1954 and then, four decades later, Portia de Rossi took residence in the West Hollywood’s Granville Towers apartment in the late 1990s. Along with these two stars, many legends have lived in this building, like Rock Hudson, David Bowie, Mickey Rourke, and more.

The penthouse’s current owner purchased the unit from de Rossi in 2003, paying $860,000, and now they’re selling it for a seriously tasty profit (despite trying to sell it for nearly $2.5 million back in 2018 and withdrawing soon after!) With the large rooms, hardwood floors, 24-7 doorman services, and a manicured courtyard garden, this is like a posh haven.

While this apartment probably won’t last long, let’s check out all that this gorgeous penthouse has to offer. See the photos of Monroe’s former home below (and make sure to see all the photos available at Dirt!)
