The three-bedroom, 3½-bathroom condo is at 444 E. 57th St., a stately 14-story building that dates back to 1927.

The late fashion designer Bill Blass once owned a building penthouse and held glamorous parties on the 3,000-square-foot terrace with views of the East River and city skyline. Other big-name residents included the great late Carlyle Hotel singer Bobby Short and Princess Madeleine of Sweden.


Miller was Monroe’s third husband and her longest marital partner. Their marriage lasted close to five years, and the house is reportedly where Miller wrote “The Misfits”, Monroe’s last play.

The 2,190-square-foot one-room, prewar home on the 13th floor has two wood-burning fireplaces and partial East River views. There’s also a formal dining room and an additional bedroom or home office.

The residence opens to a large foyer that leads to a living room with a fireplace, 9-foot ceilings, and large windows. The dining room accommodates 10 people. There is also a chef’s kitchen with custom white cabinetry.
