The sprawling California home where JFK and Marilyn Monroe are thought to have met in secret – is for sale!

The impressive 6,700 square foot West Coast home is on the market for $5 million

Hollywood’s Golden Era – stretching from the 1920s right the way through to the 1960s – was a time of glitz, glam and iconic movie sirens.

And this stunning five-bed, five-and-half bath home in the exclusive Thunderbird Heights enclave in Southern California’s Rancho Mirage – one of nine cities in the desert valley of Coachella – is said to have played host to starlets from that time including jazz crooner Bing Crosby.

The listing also hints that this could have been the property where US President John F Kennedy (JFK) enjoyed secret liaisons with famed actress Marilyn Monroe.

It reads: ‘Fabled to have housed one of our former president’s and his legendary guest, thereby earning its name, the JFK Wing.’

Blending Mid Century design with a Moroccan theme, it’s clear the owners of this home were clearly not afraid to experiment with contrasting styles.

Let’s take a look around and…

Small, but perfectly formed, this living room uses a neutral palette to create a calm environment. The roaring open fire adds a cosy feel while the duck egg sofa suite adds a subtle pop of colour.

Kitchen

Talk about a room with a view! We can’t think of anything more relaxing than taking a soak while staring out to clear blue skies and lush greenery.

With temperatures in Rancho Mirage climbing to 41°C a refreshing dip in gorgeous pool followed by a refreshing drink on the wraparound terrace is our idea of al fresco heaven.
