Monroe was married three times; His final and longest marriage (five years) was to Miller.

During that time, the couple lived in a 1927 14-story building at 444 E 57th St. in a 2,190-square-foot antebellum home with a formal dining room, fireplaces, and coveted views of the East River.

It is a prestigious address. the New York Post it notes that designer Bill Blass once lived there in the building’s penthouse and other notable residents have included royalty such as Princess Madeleine of Sweden.

The apartment itself is one of two on the floor. It is listed by Brown Harris Stevens, whose listing has more detail on the residence’s many amenities:

It features a grand entry foyer that leads to a grand living room with a wood burning fireplace, 9′ ceilings and picture windows. Off the entry foyer is a powder room with tasteful built-ins. The spacious, contemporary dining room easily seats 10 and is perfect for entertaining. A third bedroom, currently a library, has a wood-burning fireplace, custom cabinetry, and pocket doors. The large, exceptional, renovated chef’s kitchen with a center island is graced with marble countertops, lots of custom white cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances including a Wolf cooktop, stainless steel hood, two Dacor ovens, and two Miele dishwashers.

When Monroe and Miller lived at the address, the now-iconic actress decorated in her own inimitable style. According to OtSoNY.com, Monroe “did the walls a plain white and had floor-to-ceiling mirrors in the living room, after joining the two rooms together. The sofa, armchairs, and furniture were all white, as was the piano.”

For his part, “Miller hung a photo of Marilyn taken by Jack Cardiff in England” in his workshop. Although he said that “it was his favorite picture of Marilyn, he left it when she left the apartment.”

the Mail reports that the building’s amenities “include a doorman, elevator attendant, resident manager, and bike storage.” That, and some fascinating history of the 20th century.
