If you still maintain that Annie Hall-era Diane Keaton was the best Diane Keaton, then hold onto your oversized bowler hat. Because the first apartment the actress bought after playing the icon to quirky leading ladies is now back on the market.
Housed in a now-famous Central Park West co-op, the full-floor apartment with skyline views "in every direction" is the first apartment Keaton ever purchased following the success of her 1977 film with Woody Allen. The current owners — an investment banker and his wife — purchased the unit in 2012 for $13.5 million, and recently listed it with Corcoran for $17.5 million.
"It was one of those remarkable apartments," Keaton told Wine Spectator. "There was a window on every side. Everything was wide open. That was the beginning of my true interest in architecture."
Not only a piece of New York film history, but the San Remo co-op at 145 Central Park West is also a Beaux-Arts landmark designed in the 1930s by Emery Roth and was the first twin-towered structure in the city, according to the NY Post. (Fellow superstars of the late 70s and early 80s who've also resided in the building over the years include Steve Martin, Donna Karan, Steven Spielberg, and Demi Moore.)
According to Architectural Digest, the three bedroom, one bathroom apartment with a private elevator landing opens up onto a center hall, with a wood-paneled library and floor-to-ceiling shelves. The kitchen has a black-and-white-patterned tile floor and plenty of counter space and built-in glass-front cabinets. Elsewhere on the floor is a coffered-ceiling living room, a formal dining room, and a butler's pantry. The full bath features a soaking tub and a separate glass-walled shower.
Keaton herself currently resides in this brick "dream home" in Los Angeles, inspiration for her recently published style guide slash memoir and love letter to mood boards, The House That Pinterest Built.
