Marilyn Monroe’s Brentwood home was granted a temporary reprieve from demolition after a unanimous L.A. City Council vote.
Councilmember Traci Park was rushing against the clock to save Monroe’s final residence after learning that the owner, Glory of the Snow Trust, had requested a permit to have the iconic Spanish Colonial residencedemolished.
Monroe’s beloved final residence.
A Sherman Oaks neighborhood council representative said, “It is our duty and our honor to preserve and protect historical monuments. Developers are destroying our city for personal gain. It is a disgrace and should not be allowed.”
The residence, built in 1929, was the only home the actress owned.
Monroe bought the property in the early 1960s after the end of her third marriage, to playwright Arthur Miller, for $75,000.
