If you’re looking for a home with some rich history attached to it, we found the perfect one: The gated French Country style residence in Westchester, New York—where Marilyn Monroe married Arthur Miller in 1956—is officially for sale for $1.67 million.
The marriage might not have lasted long, but if the outdoor area is any indication, at least the wedding was nice. The home belonged to Miller’s agent at the time, and the 25-person wedding celebration (following a civil ceremony) was held on the sprawling yard.
The yard has a 22’x48’ pool with a terraced pool house, surrounded by plenty of greenery, and a large patio that’s ideal for entertaining. There’s even a summer kitchen and cabana for easy outdoor entertaining—and with over four acres of green lawns, there’s definitely enough room to add more amenities.
Every bit the picture of sophisticated country living, the 4,291-square-foot home resembles a French country villa. European-style fireplaces, French doors, archways, and tile flooring run throughout the four bedroom, five bathroom residence. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow for tons of natural light to flow in.
Architectural aspects of the home create a feeling of timeless elegance. Arched doors and vaulted ceilings are common, such as in the master bedroom suite, and the formal dining room. Elsewhere, a first floor guest suite comes with its own side entrance.
Built in 1948, the home was remodeled and updated in 2000. Admittedly, some of the decor elements are a little dated—specifically, the furniture, and a few questionable wall paint colors—but it’s nothing a new designer won’t be able to fix. And given the property’s enviable location on Lake Waccabuc, fuchsia walls are a small sacrifice to make for such a historic and well-situated home.
The listing is held by Houlihan Lawrence.
