Fabulous Moderne Art Deco Bathroom

last month

A condo in a 1946 townhouse reputed to have been lived in by Marilyn Monroe in her early starlet days.

It is nice that they seem to have retained the original bathroom for the most part although I think the bathroom faucet which is obviously new is a big discordant.

The furniture really works well with the feel of the home - it isn't slavishly retro but it calls back to that time period in a really livable way

Price reflects the area not being the greatest and the lack of any parking in a neighborhood where street parking is difficult.

This French Normandy townhome in Walter C. Kings landmark, Chateau Beachwood, was designed in 1937 and was reportedly built by Warner Bros to house their starlets (legend has it, this list includes Greta Garbo, Marlene Deitrich, Madonna and Marilyn Monroe, who is said to have lived in this very unit!) Upon arrival, you are greeted by magical turrets and billowing willow trees
