The “dome” home in Paradise Valley’s Casa Blanca neighborhood was a winter retreat for Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin and President Dwight Eisenhower when it was an inn during the 1930s and '40s.

Now, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom home under a 25-foot onion-shaped dome is for sale. The asking price is $1.175 million.

The home was originally the Case Blanca Inn's famed Sultan’s Table cocktail lounge.

Movie stars Clark Gable and Betty Grable also visited the dome.

 “A prospective buyer will fall in love with this home from the first time he or she lays eyes on it,” said Grant Almquist with Russ Lyon Sothby’s International Realty. “Not only is it a magnificently-designed historic treasure, there are countless stories about all the legendary celebrities who have visited The Dome."

He has the listing on the Moorish-style property that was converted to a home in the 1980s.
