Actress and historic home renovator Diane Keaton has listed a live-work town house in downtown Los Angeles for lease at $2,800 a month. She recently bought the condominium for $570,000.
The three-level unit in a Arts District building dating to 1906 features exposed brick walls and steel beams, skylights, clerestory windows, wide-plank wood floors, vaulted ceilings, a patio, a rooftop terrace and an open floor plan. The 1,285-square-feet of living space contains two bedrooms and 21/2 bathrooms.
Keaton, 66, stars in "Darling Companion," due out this month. She won an Oscar for her leading role in the 1977 film "Annie Hall." In addition to her active interest in house restoration, she co-wrote "California Romantica" and is working on another architecture book for Rizzoli.
Aileen Comora and Paul Lester of the Agency are the listing agents on the lease, and Comora represented Keaton in the purchase. Wayne A. Willbur and Jason Kitchens of Deasy Penner & Partners had the for-sale listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
