In addition to her talent on the big screen, Diane Keaton has enjoyed major success as a house flipper, and her newest conquest is a 1890s-era Sonoran row house. She picked up the historic residence in Tucson, AZ for $1.5 million.
The 4,572-square-foot building is located in the Barrio Viejo area of the city. The residence features adobe-style architecture. It was built as utilitarian housing, but it has been transformed into an intensely rustic Southwestern home. The unusual four-bedroom, 3.5-bath-er underwent a comprehensive renovation under its previous owners.
The revision took two years to complete. It honors the historical heritage of the home and was gifted several awards, including the Governor’s Heritage Honor Award. Standout features include mud-plastered interior walls, antique brick flooring, original fireplaces, and exposed-beam raw wood ceilings. The original architecture makes it a rambler, with a combined living and dining room, library, master suite, and guest bedrooms in a linear layout.
The home also holds two office suites that can easily be converted into additional guest bedrooms. Although the property has already undergone extensive restorations, Keaton plans to add her own special touch to the home before relisting.
Recently, Keaton has been at work filming “Book Club,” “Hampstead,” and “The Young Pope.” Her directing credits include 1995’s “Unstrung Heroes.”
