If you’re looking for luxury real estate with historic connections, the former home of Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller near Sutton Place is on the market for $3.05 million — a notable drop from its original asking price of $ 3.75 million.

Monroe was married three times; her last and longest marriage (five years) was to Miller.

During that time, the couple lived in a 14-story building built in 1927 444 E 57th St. in a 2,190-square-foot antebellum home with a formal dining room, fireplaces, and coveted views of the East River.

It’s a prestigious address. The New York Post notes that designer Bill Blass once lived there in the building’s penthouse and other notable residents have included royalty such as Sweden’s Princess Madeleine.

The apartment itself is one of two on the floor. It is listed by Brown Harris Stevens, whose list details the residence’s many amenities:

It features a grand entry foyer leading to a large living room with fireplace, 9ft ceilings and large windows. Off the entry foyer is a powder room with tasteful appliances. The spacious contemporary dining room easily seats 10 people and is perfect for entertaining. A third bedroom, currently a library, has a fireplace, custom closets and pocket doors. The large, exceptional, remodeled chef’s kitchen with a center island is adorned with marble counters, plenty of custom white cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances including a Wolf cooktop, stainless steel hood plus two Dacor ovens and two Miele dishwashers.

When Monroe and Miller lived at the address, the now-iconic actor decorated in her own inimitable style. According to OtSoNY.comMonroe “simply whitewashed the walls and placed floor-to-ceiling mirrors in the living room, having merged the two rooms. The sofa, armchairs, and furniture were white, as was the piano.”

For his part, “Miller hung a picture of Marilyn, taken by Jack Cardiff in England,” in his study. Although he said “it was his favorite picture of Marilyn, he gave it up when he left the apartment.”

The After reports that the building’s amenities include “a doorman, an elevator operator, a live-in manager, and a bike shed.” That, and some fascinating 20th century history.
