L.A. Rental: Monroe, Bogart and Garbo's Former Hollywood Townhouse

If you're going to live in Hollywood you might as well find a place in movie history. This two -bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom townhouse renting for $2,450 is in a building that was home to Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart and Greta Garbo back in their respective days. This charming former hotel for Hollywood hopefuls is now an apartment complex with old details, greenery and, with this unit, a much coveted parking space. Although you want charm in a place, you still need the practicals.

With the history of this building you'll have everyone wanting to come over and see the home of Hollywood giants. And of course by giants they include you, natch.

Here's what else the apartment features....
The average rent for a two bedroom in this area for March was $2,700, making this $2,450 apartment a good deal. The front-unit townhouse apartment gets plenty of light and is good news for pet owners: with a deposit they're allowed.

You would expect Monroe's former building to charm and this apartment doesn't disappoint -- though you might want to repaint if a bright-blue accent wall isn't your thing. Yes, it has some great amenities like the parking spot, and a washer and dryer inside (bet Garbo didn't have that). Plus, there's a yard, balcony and air conditioning, which is a rarity in these old buildings. The hardwood floors, archways and French doors add to its old-world glamor. One downside, if you like to cook, would be the small kitchen. However the townhouse is spacious overall. In addition to the two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms, it has a large living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room with built-ins and outdoor entertaining space by way of a patio.

Located near Hollywood's Capitol Records Tower and great eateries like Beso and the 101 Coffee Shop, with this apartment you are in the thick of Hollywood. If you want to live like Marilyn and Bogie, that's available now.
