The pair also lived in the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home in 1953, and soaked in the deep canyon views from their picturesque, grotto-like swimming pool.

Monroe rented the home for $237 a month, but it recently sold for $2.7 million following a brief bidding war.
The home was rented by Hollywood power couple Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio in 1953. Back in the day, the rent was only $237, according to an old check Monroe signed in January of 1953, the @TODAYshow reports. https://t.co/wqPEeNFsT2
