The condo building at 444 East 57th Street in Sutton Place has been home to the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller, and Bill Blass, and now that building is offering up one of its homes on the market—a condo that shared a landing with Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Milller’s apartment when they lived here in the ’50s.

This particular apartment, located on the 13th floor of the 14-story prewar building, comes with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The apartment opens up into a reception gallery through seven-foot-tall dark Mahogany doors. Beyond the gallery, the corner living room comes with a wood-burning fireplace and triple pane windows on two walls.

The formal dining room in the condo can seat 14, and the eat-in kitchen adjacent to this space comes with Viking and Subzero appliances.

The bedrooms are located on the right side of the home, and the master bedroom here comes with three closets, and an attached marble bathroom that features a separate shower stall and tub.

Currently this nearly 3,000-square-foot home is configured as three-bedroom with a media room, but the brokers on the property point out that it can be changed into a four-bedroom or alternately into a couple’s home with just one guest bedroom, and the room adjacent to the master bedroom converted into a dressing room.

All of that comes for a price of $4.995 million with an additional $7,500/month in common charges and monthly taxes.

Further up north from here, an Upper East Side townhouse that Monroe briefly called home is also on the market right now as a rental asking $26,500/month.
