Bing Crosby's former estate is on the market for a whopping $4.5 million. 

The mid-century home, located in Rancho Mirage, California, was a favorite place for the legendary singer turned movie star, who died in 1977, to entertain friends and family. Some of his most famous guests included Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy, according to the home's listing. The former president allegedly visited the property so many times that its casita is forever known as the JFK Wing.

Nestled away in the exclusive neighborhood of Thunderbird Heights, the home features five bedrooms and six bathrooms spread across 6,700 square feet.
