Diane Keaton's Beverly Hills Mansion for Sale
Oscar-winning actress Diane Keaton has already dropped the price on her meticulously-restored Beverly Hills Spanish Colonial Revival mansion. It was first listed at $12.95 million in March and is now on the market for $11.995 million.. Built in 1927 by architect Ralph Flewelling, the 7,145-sq.-ft. seven-bed, nine-bath spread features an inner courtyard with a fountain (above, surrounded by sleepy Mexican gnomes) separating the kitchen and family room on one side from the media room, den and staircase leading to the upstairs, the L.A. Times reports. It has thruway arches in the living and dining rooms, a movie star-worthy pool, and a garden with olive tree-lined walkways. Keaton's acting career has been interspersed with her home- and building-preservation efforts, the paper notes, and she is a member of America's National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The home was featured in Architectural Digest in November 2008 and the slideshow is here.
