A history of stellar tenants
A triplex in West Hollywood that has counted film star Marilyn Monroe and singer Frank Sinatra among its former tenants has come on the market at $4.75 million.
Monroe's and Sinatra's rentals overlapped in 1961. She lived in hers and he used his apartment as a getaway, according to "Mr. S: My Life With Frank Sinatra," written by George Jacobs, his valet at the time.
The owner is Beverly Coburn, actor James Coburn's first wife. She bought the building in 1989 for $1.643 million from interior designer Kalef Alaton, who had remodeled it.
The three units in the gated compound share a courtyard and patio space. The main unit features floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the living room, high ceilings, five fireplaces and two bedrooms. The above-garage studio has a fireplace, a kitchenette and terrace space. A one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit with an office includes an atrium garden.
There are a total of four bedrooms and six bathrooms in 5,637 square feet of living space.
