Inside Marilyn Monroe's NewYork City Sanctuary


Marilyn Monroe is usually associated with the glitz and glamour of Hollywood's Golden Era, but when she wasn't on the West Coast, the iconic actress spent a great deal of time in New York City (she was married to a Yankee, after all). Whenever Monroe touched down in the city, she made 127 East 78th Street—the residence of her close friend and colleague Milton Greene—her home, even referring to it as her "sanctuary," Daily Mail reports

Now, the 4.5-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom townhouse is available to rent for $27,500 a month through Town Residential. "Throughout the home, original details have been lovingly preserved and modern conveniences seamlessly infused," John Carapella, a rep for the real estate firm, told Daily mail. 

The four-story residence features a marble staircase, a European terrace and stained glass from the legendary Luchow's restaurant and has also been updated with a security system, central air and heating and a Jacuzzi bathtub. In addition to Monroe and Milton, the house also hosted Bette Davis and Irving Berlin as residents since its construction in 1899. Tour the historic property below.

Lewis Hamilton £10m Monaco apartment


Lewis Hamilton 'to buy £10m Monaco apartment'


Lewis Hamilton will confirm his elevation to sporting superstardom by exchanging his one-bedroom flat in Surrey for a £10million apartment in Monaco, it was claimed last night.


The 22-year-old, who was on pole for today's Chinese Grand Prix, a race in which he was hoping to clinch the Formula 1 world championship, was originally thought to have preferred the tax haven of Switzerland.

However, a number of estate agents in the tax-free principality have come forward claiming they have been instructed to find Hamilton a seaview apartment

in the exclusive Fontvieille district.

According to Stephane Carinni, a Monaco estate agent, the former comprehensive-schoolboy had been formulating plans for his move at least six months ago.

Mr Carinni said: "When Lewis was here last May, he put the word out that he was looking for an apartment in the four to five million pounds mark, which is relatively modest by Monaco standards.

"But since the Formula 1 season has progressed - and it now looks almost certain he is going to win it - he has doubled what he is prepared to spend."

Fontvieille is already home to Hamilton's fellow British driver David Coulthard, who owns the Columbus Hotel. Another F1 rookie, Nico Rosberg, also owns property in the area.

One apartment said to have caught Hamilton's eye is in Fontvieille's Seaside Plaza, where he has asked for details on a 2,000sq ft, four-bedroom duplex with views across the Mediterranean.

The lavish pad, complete with four bathrooms, a steam room and a 300sq ft sun terrace, would make a perfect lovenest for Lewis and any of the beautiful female companions he has been linked with this year.

They include on-off girlfriend Jodia Ma, pop star Natasha Bedingfield and Saudi billionaire's daughter Sara Ojjeh, who was pictured with Hamilton in St Tropez this summer.



Mr Carinni said: "The place he is interestedin is very desirable and would suit a single man looking for a base here perfectly. But it is by no means the most expensive apartment in the building. There are several on the top floor that are three times the size and on the market for £30million.



"For someone with his potential wealth, the benefits of moving here are obvious. He will pay no income tax and have a safe haven where he will be surrounded by fellow multi-millionaires and have no trouble from roaming paparazzi."



The district, which has a population of around 3,000, has long been a retreat for sports stars. Boris Becker, Eddie Irvine and Michael Schumacher have all been one-time residents.



At the Ship and Castle British pub on Fontvieille Harbour, regulars seemed unconcerned about the arrival of yet another celebrity. Resident Tom Henton-Smith said: "This is one of the few places in the world where someone like Lewis Hamilton can stroll unbothered.



"We've had Michael Schumacher, David Coulthard, Bjˆrn Borg and Pavarotti in here over the years, so no one's going to bat an eyelid if Lewis Hamilton wanders up to the bar and orders a beer."



When he is not racing around the world, Hamilton lives in a comparatively modest bachelor flat around the corner from the McLaren F1 team's base in Woking, Surrey.



In just eight months, he has become a sporting phenomenon. His income has already soared from a 'meagre' £250,000 at the beginning of this year and some experts are claiming he could soon be earning in excess of £50million in his bid to become the first driver in Formula 1 history to land the world championship in his debut season.



His achievement would be all the more remarkable given that those entering the sport are frequently bankrolled by wealthy parents.



The youngster was brought up on a council estate in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, by his father Anthony, a former railway booking clerk who acts as his son's manager.



Mr Hamilton has previously described how he had to scrimp and save just to get his son racing on the go-kart circuit.



Even if Hamilton were not to win today's race, he could still seal the championship when it moves on to Brazil.

Beyonce and Jay-Z $150,000 Per Month Rental Home in Holmby Hills Los Angeles

After renting out (on two separate occasions) this stunning mansion in Los Angeles's elite Holmby Hills neighborhood, Beyoncé​ and Jay Z will soon be without a West Coast home. The property was still for sale throughout the Knowles-Carter family's stay — even though they signed a one-year lease — and someone just picked up the home for $35.5 million, according toCurbed
Although their original lease would have extended their stay until February 2016, the music moguls now have just 60 days to move out, but with several other properties to their names, we're sure they'll be just fine.
Beyoncé and Jay Z have called New York City home for years, but it looks like the celebrity couple will be spending a lot more time on the West Coast after signing a one-year lease for a stunning mansion in Los Angeles. 
According to TMZ, the couple has already enrolled Blue Ivy in an elite private school in L.A., and the whole family has been living in a hotel while they search for the perfect home. But after being outbid on an extravagant Beverly Hills estate in December, Bey and Jay have decided to return to the rental they stayed in last summer, according to Curbed
The couple paid $200,000 a month when they first rented the mansion in 2014, but with the one-year lease they signed this time around, the price was dropped to $150,000 a month. And now that the music moguls will be staying for an extended period of time they will be able to fully enjoy all of the home's amenities, including the infinity pool, wine cellar, art gallery, fitness room, multiple libraries, private tennis court and home theater. 
The seven-bedroom, eight-and-a-half bathroom estate is still for sale for $35.5 million, so perhaps the Carter family will make a purchase after trying it out for a year. Check out the photos below for a closer look at the estate Beyoncé, Jay Z and Blue Ivy will soon call home.

Lady Gaga's Ocean Front Luxurious Home

When I heard that Lady Gaga bought a $22 million estate overlooking Zuma Beach in Malibu, I kind of expected it to be something flashy and contemporary. I was pleasantly surprised to see it’s actually a more traditional French Provincial-style home that was designed by architect Steve Giannetti.
Steve Giannetti and his wife Brooke, who writes the popular design blog Velvet&Linen, are amazingly talented. I’ve got their book Patina Style sitting on the coffee table in my sunroom right now. So I was excited to see what he did with this house in Malibu.
His portfolio describes this project as “An Equestrian Estate overlooking Zuma Beach in Malibu that was based on a collection of European farmhouses. Construction by John Finton and interiors by Madeline Stuart.
The house was built in 2006 on nearly 6 acres. It comes with a barn for up to eight horses, a riding arena, and a number of pens and riding trails.
The kitchen has a limestone island, a Wolf range, and a terrace with ocean views.
There’s a “secret door” that leads to what the former owner called the Bat Cave — an 800-bottle wine cellar, home theater with bar, and a way cool vintage Brunswick Bowl two-lane bowling alley from the 1960s with original scoreboard.
This bedroom is in a separate guest house with a kitchenette:
Here’s how it looked when it was featured in Veranda:
