Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe’s Former Residence for Sale

Currently for sale at $4.75 million, this luxurious triplex in West Hollywood was once home for Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra. The property used to be comprised of 5 separate units back in the ‘50s, one of which was a permanent residence for the beautiful Marilyn, and one a luxe getaway for her friend, Frank.

Time brought a few major changes to the building, however, and so instead of the original five units there are only three today, thanks to the major renovation that designer Kalef Alaton completed in the ‘80s. The Turkish-born interior designer was also the mastermind behind remarkable projects like Hotel Bel-Air and a series of stunning private homes of Beverly Hills.

All three units enjoy direct access to an airy patio and Zen courtyards, but their configuration differs quite a lot. The smallest of them is described as an ideal “writer’s retreat or artist compound”, having one bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom, and an office that was designed around an atrium. The largest unit flaunts 2 bedrooms, a 100-foot long living room, five fireplaces, and natural-light-inviting floor-to-ceiling windows. Finally, the third unit is placed above the garage and features a large library that can also be used as a bedroom, a kitchenette, and a cozy fireplace.

In total, there are 5,637 square feet of living space spread over three separate units. Why not buy them all?
