The 1928 swanky house which used to belong to American actress/ director/producer/screenwriter Diane Keaton sold as a foreclosure last year. Situated on the oceanfront on Cliff Drive, this luxury estate has the city’s highest historic rating. Sprawled over a 12,175-square-foot lot, it features 4,390 square feet of living space including 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
Reportedly, Diane Keaton had bought the estate for about $7.5 million in 2004 and sold it one year later for a little more than double the sum. What makes it so special is the Mission or Spanish Style, which is not very common in the area, giving out a rich sense of history from an architectural point if view. The villa is designed as an ideal space for entertaining hosting numerous dining areas and a sense of continuity between indoor and outdoor areas. Fully-fitted kitchen, oceanfront terraces, lush landscaped grounds, beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, private boat storage, 2 fireplaces, detached garage, forced air heating system, are just some of the remarkable features that make this exquisite residence a landmark in Laguna Beach. On top of this, it has gorgeous ocean views, direct beach access and private sand boat storage.
