NYACK, N.Y. — In the market for a little real estate?

Maybe you'd like a suburban New York mansion that was the longtime home of Helen Hayes and her husband, playwright Charles MacArthur.

The house in Nyack (NY'-ak) is called Pretty Penny. The asking price is quite more bit more than a penny — just under $5 million.

The Journal News (http://lohud.us/1chrGYi) says guests there over the years included Ronald Reagan, Marilyn Monroe, Rosalind Russell, Ed Sullivan, Noel Coward, Laurence Olivier, Katharine Hepburn and Vivien Leigh.

The couple also hosted Cole Porter; F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Barrymore. Edward Hopper did a painting of Pretty Penny in 1939.

Other owners have included Rosie O'Donnell. Russell Crowe rented Pretty Penny in 2006.
