Beverly Coburn, actor James Coburn‘s first wife, has sold a West Hollywood triplex with a history of stellar tenants for $3.72 million.

The building, which has counted film star Marilyn Monroe and singer Frank Sinatra among its one-time residents, came on the market in the fall at $4.75 million.

Monroe’s and Sinatra’s tenancies overlapped in 1961. She lived in her apartment, and he used his as a getaway, according to “Mr. S: My Life With Frank Sinatra,” written by George Jacobs, his valet at the time.

The three units in the gated compound, built in 1952, share a courtyard and patio space. The main unit features floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the living room, high ceilings, five fireplaces and two bedrooms. The above-garage studio has a fireplace, a kitchenette and terrace space. A one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit with an office includes an atrium garden.

There are a total of five fireplaces, four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 5,637 square feet of living space.

Beverly Coburn bought the building in 1989 for $1.643.

Steven Levine and Jennifer N. Levine of Hilton & Hyland were the listing agents. Rayni Romito and Branden Williams of the same office represented the buyer.
