Marilyn Monroe lived a very glamorous life as a blonde bombshell. If you’ve ever tried to get her iconic curls or tried to wear a white dress like the one she wore in The Seven Year Itch, you definitely are a Marilyn Monroe fan. You can actually live like her this summer – if you have $55,000 to spare.
This summer, the windmill Hamptons home that Marilyn leased with her then-husband Arthur Miller in 1957 is available for rent. It’ll only set you back several thousand dollars!
Marilyn Monroe rose to superstardom in the early 1950s, after a successful pinup career and a lukewarm acting career in the late ’40s. She became arguably the biggest sex symbol of the 20th century (and would probably be still considered Top 5 in the 21st century).
She had a sex appeal that was greatly enticing for audiences, but her private life was also just as entertaining. She had very public relationships and her third marriage to Arthur Miller, a playwright, was one of the most public ones.
In 1957, the couple leased a charming two-bedroom, one bathroom home in the Hamptons. The home is unique compared to many other destinations in the Hamptons, as it is a home fashioned inside of a windmill.
The windmill, originally built in 1830, was converted into a home by Samuel Rubin, the creator of the Faberge perfume company, in the ’50s. Many other celebrities stayed at the home over the summer, including writer Kurt Vonnegut and actor Terence Stamp.
On the first floor of the windmill home, there is a living area and kitchen, while the second floor has the bathroom and bedrooms, and the third floor is currently used as storage space.
The home is at 64 Deep Lane in East Hampton and might look totally secluded, but it is close to quite a few beaches. Summer guests can take a leisurely 30-minute walk to three different beaches, or public transportation is just a few miles away as well.
The typical monthly price is $18,333, but for the entire summer, interested guests can snatch this for $55,000.
