The Spanish colonial-style Hollywood home where iconic sex siren Marilyn Monroe died in 1962 is going up for sale for 3.6 million dollars, the real estate agency said on Tuesday.

The one-story property, built in 1929, which spreads lavishly over 23,000 square feet (2,000 square meters) of land, is "the crown jewel" of the luxurious neighborhood of Brentwood, according to the agency's website.

The current owner did not permit press access to the property but allowed AFP access to take photos from behind tall gates on the secluded cul de sac.

Monroe memorabilia is highly coveted, with even a burial spot near the star's last resting place being sold on the online auction website eBay in 2009 for 4.6 million dollars.
