The Space Was Originally Designed by Lloyd Wright for Alfred Newman

Those who want a chance to live where not one but two Academy Award winners have once lived now have the chance to do so in Rustic Canyon.
The Newman Residence, originally built for nine-time Academy Award-winning composer Alfred Newman and later refurbished by Oscar-winner Diane Keaton, is for sale at $13.5 million.
Keaton spent two years refurbishing the Lloyd Wright designed mid-century modern house before selling it for $10.75 in 2010, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“A masterpiece of organic mid-century modernism, renovated and lovingly restored by Diane Keaton,” the listing boasts.
The 4,386-square-foot home includes five bedrooms and four bathrooms, with brick and concrete accenting the interiors. Spread out over 1.4 acres, the estate also offers “complete privacy and security,” with a large motor court, long private driveway, mature trees and a swimming pool.
“One of [a] kind for a collector with exacting standards,” the listing continues.
Listing agents for the property are Drew Fenton and Gary Gold of Hilton & Hyland.
