The gorgeous Hollywood Hills property that once served as the Honeymoon love nest to Tinseltown royalty Marilyn Monroe and New York Yankees Joe DiMaggio is on the market.n

nThe Outpost Estates home at 2393 Castilian Drive is going for $2.695 million. It boasts deep canyon views from every single room in the house.

nIn a rare twist, it has more bathrooms than bedrooms, five and four respectively, and 3,335 square feet of house on a 8,228 square-foot lot.n

nThe Mediterranean style home is perfect for Al fresco dining and for entertaining friends, the listing promises, along with wood-beamed ceilings and a remodeled kitchen.n

nThe home was rented by Hollywood power couple Marliyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio in 1953. Back in the day, the rent was only $237, according to an old check Monroe signed in January of 1953, Today reports.

nTheir short, and sometimes volatile marriage, only lasted nine months.

nBorn Norma Jeane Mortenso in Los Angeles in 1926, Monroe grew up in foster families and married her first husband at 16. She later married DiMaggio, and they rented this home. They divorced, and she married playwright Arthur Miller.n

nThough their tumultuous marriage didn't last long, DiMaggio and Monroe remained good friends. DiMaggio is famously said to have sent roses to her Los Angeles grave for decades, until his death in 1999.

Marilyn Monroe poses over the updraft of New York subway grating while in character for the filming of "The Seven Year Itch" in Manhattan on September 15, 1954. Rumor has it that her new husband Joe DiMaggio was on set during the scene, and grew very upset that a crowd had gathered to look at the provocative pose.
