Anna Nicole Smith's home for sale

Anna Nicole Smith's Los Angeles mansion is for sale.

The sprawling 4,700 square foot home - where the tragic former model filmed her reality TV show 'The Anna Nicole Show' before her death in 2007 from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs at the age of 39 - has been put on the market by the trustees of her estate for $1.75 million.

The house, which is located in Studio City, California, contains five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and a gym with the profits expected to be ploughed back into her estate. After starting out as a stripper, Anna Nicole went on to marry oil baron J. Howard Marshall when he was 89 and she was 26, and went on to fight for his estate in the courts following his death.

The year before her own passing, her 20-year-old son Daniel died of a drugs overdose, just three days after Anna Nicole gave birth to her second child, daughter Dannielynn. Dannielynn, four - who is being raised by her father Larry Birkhead - is the sole heir to her mother's fortune.
