Serial home renovator and actress Diane Keaton has put a Pacific Palisades house on the market at $6.995 million.
The Oscar-winning actress bought the property three years ago for $5.6 million and created a restful living space featuring subdued-tone interiors. Rustic accessories and dark wood floors give the 2009 house a classic yet relaxed ambience.
In a departure from her previous remodeling projects, which often involved older home restorations and attention to historic details, Keaton has redone a newer home and made extensive use of words and signage as artwork.
Giant street numbers draw the eye at the front door, a bathroom sports the words “Teen Town,” and massive decorative lettering adorns an outdoor wall.
A formal entry, living and dining rooms, a kitchen/family room, a wine room with more verbiage, a study, a home theater, six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two powder rooms are within three levels and 7,800 square feet of living space. The master suite has a patio and roof deck.
The nearly quarter-acre corner lot includes a lawn, a swimming pool and an outdoor living and dining area.
Keaton, 69, will be in the holiday film Love the Coopers, due out this month. The Annie Hall Oscar winner is at work on the television miniseries The Young Pope and next year’s animated film Finding Dory.
A HOME AWAY FROM THE SLOPES
Olympic champion skier Bode Miller has listed his house in the Coto de Caza community of Orange County, California, for sale at $4.999 million.
The 10-acre-plus estate has 360-degree views taking in the mountains, ocean and scenery.
The 8,000-square-foot Tuscan-inspired home sits at the end of a tree-lined driveway. Living spaces include an office, a library, a bonus room, a butler’s pantry, a wine room, upstairs and downstairs laundry rooms, five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. There’s a six-car garage with a motor court.
The kitchen features high-end appliances including separate refrigerator and freezer, three ovens, three dishwashers, three sinks, two islands and a coffee station. It opens to the family room with sliding doors that access the backyard.
Miller, 38, was the overall Alpine Skiing World Cup champion in 2005 and 2008. He has won six Winter Olympics medals including a gold for super combined in 2010 at the Vancouver Games.
LATE ACTRESS’ IRISH HOME
Actress Maureen O’Hara sold her longtime home in County Cork, Ireland, for an estimated $1.8 million about a month before her recent death.
Two private islands are part of the 35-acre coastline property, known as Lugdine Park. In addition to the main house, there’s a guest cottage and free-standing swimsuit changing rooms. Views take in Glengarriff Bay and the mountains beyond.
Although O’Hara was caught up in the charm of the local village, scenery and rural setting in selecting the home in 1970, her then-husband, Charles F. Blair Jr., saw the nearby water as a “perfect place to land a seaplane,” she was quoted as saying in the property brochure.
Bay and dormer windows and a pitched roof add character to the 3,665-square-foot, five-bedroom main house, which is surrounded by a driveway.
Excluded in the sale but available for separate purchase were the household furniture, machinery and “the chattels within the house.” That’s Irish for personal possessions.
More than two dozen “ladies walks,” or nature paths, crisscross the grounds. Real estate descriptions don’t get much quainter than that.
Marketing details further noted that “the property is fully alarmed.”
O’Hara, who was 95, starred in more than 60 movies including How Green Was My Valley (1941), Miracle on 34th Street (1947) and The Quiet Man (1952). She received an honorary Oscar last year for her contribution to film during her 75-year career.
T.O.’S LATEST COMPLETION
Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens has come up a few yards short in San Fernando Valley, selling his home in Sherman Oaks for $2 million — $200,000 less than what he and his estranged wife, Rachel Snider, paid for it last year.
Built in 2013, the East Coast-inspired Traditional house is highlighted by French white oak floors, dove white wall siding and double-hung and picture windows. A wide porch with a swing wraps around the lower level of the two-story home.
Interior spaces include a step-down living room with raised ceilings and a fireplace that opens to a formal dining room and a chef’s kitchen with a wide center island. A family room, a den-office and a sun room are also within the 4,888 square feet of living space.
Five bedrooms and 5.25 bathrooms include a master suite with a sitting room, fireplace and massive walk-in closet. French doors off the master bathroom open to a private patio.
Outdoors, hedged grounds include a covered patio, a large expanse of grass and a swimming pool and spa with a waterfall feature. Elsewhere on the grounds is a three-car garage.
Owens, 41, played 15 seasons for the 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bills and Bengals, making five All-Pro teams. His 15,934 receiving yards rank second only to Jerry Rice (22,895) in NFL history.
