Hollywood’s Restoration Queen

While she is best known to the public as an Oscar-winning actress, Diane Keaton is also renowned in certain circles for the painstaking work she puts into restoring homes and other buildings. As a member of the America’s National Trust for Historic Preservation, she has interspersed her acting career with a number of preservation projects, fascinated by the beauty, eccentricity, and history that many older homes possess.

The latest project on her list is a Los Angeles home designed by architect Ralph Flewelling. Built in 1927, this home measures 7,145 square feet. It has nine bathrooms and seven bedrooms, with two of the bedrooms being in the master suite. There is also a separate guest suite. The dining and living feature thruway arches, while the yard sports olive tree-lined pathways and a pool. The 63-year-old actress has listed the home for $11,995,000.
