The Brentwood, California, home where Marilyn Monroe died has come to market for $6.9 million.

The hacienda-style house on a leafy half-acre of grounds was purchased by Monroe in the early 1960s following the end of her third marriage, to playwright Arthur Miller.

Los Angeles Times reporting after the actress’ death in 1962 noted that she paid $75,000 for the house, which came partially furnished; her mortgage payments were $320 a month.

More recently, the property changed hands in 2012 for $5.1 million.

Built in 1929, the one-story house contains a formal living room, a family room, an office, four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,624 square feet of living space. Appointments include arched doorways, Saltillo tile floors and cathedral ceilings with exposed beams.

A fireplace in the living room draws the eye with a Mexican tile surround.

Mature trees, a guesthouse, a citrus grove and a kidney-shaped swimming pool fill the grounds.
