Ryan Murphy buys Diane Keaton house


“Glee” mastermind Ryan Murphy has purchased actress Diane Keaton’s Spanish Colonial Revival in Beverly Hills for an undisclosed amount, public records show.

Keaton restored the Ralph Flewelling-designed hacienda, which she bought in 2007 for $8.1 million. It first came on the market in March 2009 priced at $12,995,000 and was most recently priced at $10.95 million. It could be months before the prices of September sales appear on public records.

The courtyard-style house, built in 1927, has an oversized front door that opens to a hall with a library. A living room and dining room sit beyond arched passages. On one side of the fountain-centered courtyard is a family room and the kitchen; on the other, a media room and den. There are six fireplaces, seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms in 8,434 square feet of living space. The nearly half-acre of grounds include a swimming pool and paths lined by olive trees.


Murphy, in his mid-40s, is the creator of such hit shows as “Glee” (2009-present) and “Nip/Tuck” (2003-10). The writer-producer-director owns other residential property in the Los Angeles area.

Keaton, who also is a producer-director, will star in the comedy “Morning Glory,” due out in November, and in the 2012 drama “Darling Companion.” Keaton, 64, has four decades of film credits and won a lead actress Oscar for “Annie Hall” (1977).

Aileen Comora and Paul Lester of Westside Estate Agency, Beverly Hills, had the listing.
