Marilyn Monroe's former Brentwood home is on the market for $6.9 million

A piece of Hollywood history has hit the market for $6.9 million -- but can you really put a price tag on a home so priceless?

The stunning Brentwood home isn't just the only home Marilyn Monroe ever owned. It's also where she tragically died in 1962 at 36.

The bombshell blonde purchased the home for $75,000 at the behest of her psychiatrist, who suggested she settle down and "put down roots" -- and it's not hard to imagine Monroe enjoying the four bedroom, three bathroom Spanish-style home with beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and an expansive yard featuring a pool and citrus orchard.
