A Rumored JFK-Marilyn Monroe Tryst House Is Up For Sale

Owned by Bing Crosby, it’s yours for just $5 million

Days after the fact, still dreaming of a white Christmas?

You won’t get the snow, but Bing Crosby’s Rancho Mirage estate is up for sale — and it comes with its own scandalous presidential backstory.

A five-bed, five-bath estate owned by the actor/singer best known for his standard-setting cover of Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas,” Crosby’s mansion is a mid-century design with a Moroccan theme. Set over 1.1 acres and 6700 square feet of living space, it features “expansive and unobstructed views” of Coachella Valley, as well as an array of outdoor gardens, a pool, three fire pits and an attached casita.

But you’re here for the scandal … as in, it’s rumored this party hut was a clandestine meeting spot for John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe.

The asking price for the property, available now via Douglas Elliman Real Estate, is a whopping $5 million. Which, given its location and backstory, is a pretty fair price for a … well, not important, but certainly interesting piece of American history.
