Actress Diane Keaton has placed her 8,434-square-foot, Spanish Colonial Revival-style mansion in Beverly Hills, Calif. on the market for $12,995,000.
Our friends over at the Real Estalker broke the story the other day of Keaton's listing of the seven-bedroom Roxbury Drive mansion, which she purchased using her real name (Diane Hall) in early 2007 for $8,100,000. Keaton subsequently has remodeled the mansion.

Built in 1927, Keaton's mansion came on the market on March 6, although it was placed in the MLS with no address attached to it. Designed by architect Ralph Flewelling, the mansion has nine baths, an entry hall, a library, arched doorways leading to a dining room and a living room, an inner courtyard with a fountain, a media room, an intimate den, a master suite with dual baths, and a separate guest suite, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.49-acre (21,196-square-foot) lot include a pool and paths lined by olive trees, according to public records and listing information.
Keaton (shown here with pals Steve Martin and Martin Short) has purchased and flipped all kinds of Los Angeles-area real estate over the years, as the Real Estalker chronicled. In fact, as she told Architectural Digest in an article written late last year, Keaton actually had bought this house once before, at the start of the 2000s, but then backed out during escrow because she got "cold feet" owing to the fact that they house needed "a lot of work."
Here's a short list of just some of the other L.A.-area properties that Keaton has owned over the years:
1) the 2,690-square-foot Navarro house at 2255 Verde Oak Drive in Los Angeles' Los Feliz area, which Keaton sold to Christina Ricci (and which Ricci sold in 2006 for $2,827,500);
2) the 4,386-square-foot Alfred Newman house on Sunset Boulevard in Pacific Palisades, which Keaton purchased in early 2007 for $9,100,000 and which she subsequently has informally had on the market;
and 3) the Wallace Neff-designed house in Beverly Hills that Keaton sold to Madonna's Castillo Del Lago Trust in 2000 for a reported $6.5 million and that Madonna's Lot 99 Trust sold in 2004 for $8,750,000)
We also should note that Keaton once owned the 7,739-square-foot house at 212 Copa de Oro Road in Los Angeles' Bel-Air area. Although Celebrity Address Aerial still lists that house as belonging to Keaton, records show that she sold it to a private-equity mogul for $16,500,000 in 2005.
