The French Country-style residence in Waccabuc in Westchester declared to have “the incredible provenance of hosting the well-publicized celebrity wedding of Marilyn Monroe and playwright Arthur Miller” according to Houlihan Lawrence broker Susan Stillman, is now on the market at an asking price of $1.68 million.
In 1956 Monroe and Miller legally wed in a four-minute ceremony at a White Plains courthouse. The 25-person wedding reception and traditional Jewish ceremony was held at the home of Kay Brown, Miller’s Hollywood agent. Though the marriage lasted only four years, the picturesque house where they celebrated it is still charming and well-preserved.
This “perfect retreat for sophisticated country living” retains many of the original details including parquet floors, French doors, leaded windows, and European-style fireplaces. The four-bedroom five-bathroom home is 4921 square feet on a private 4.16 acre property surrounded by light woodlands, specimen landscaping, and gardens.
This appearance on the real estate market follows the sale of Marilyn Monroe’s home in Brentwood April of this year. The home was sold for $325,000 over asking price at $7.25 million and only ten days after it was listed. Monroe had purchased the home after the end of her marriage to Arthur Miller and resided there until her death in 1962.
The Upper West Side penthouse of Monroe’s second husband Joe DiMaggio also recently hit the market at $4.5 million.
