Built in 1927, the 3.85-acre compound consists of nearly 50 rooms in all, including a voluminous great room, a library, a craft room, a sun-drenched conservatory and 10 bedrooms, each with a unique name based on the room’s ceiling design. Monroe’s personal bungalow – known as The Happy Hut – has been preserved. You can practically feel the Old Hollywood glamour emanating from the walls of this estate.
A variety of other amenities are spread throughout the home’s lush grounds: a tennis court, a gate house, four boat docks, an outdoor kennel and a state-of-the-art car/motorcycle restoration and display area. The residence is listed for $14.8 million, increased from its previous asking price of $9.975 million.
