According to Real Estalker, Diane Keaton, a well-known property flipper with an interest in historic California homes, has flipped and put the Lloyd Wright designed Alfred Newman Estate in Pacific Palisades on the private market. For those of you who aren't exactly archi-philes, Lloyd Wright was the often overshadowed architect son of celebrated American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. For further information on the estate,
The 4,386-square-foot, 6 bedroom, 5-bath residence features a natural spring for irrigation, a riding arena, a small barn with stables, an area for outdoor concerts, and a hexagonal swimming pool, which Lloyd Wright was known for. The property itself slopes down from Sunset Boulevard, providing views of Rustic Canyon. The interior space, which may or may not remain after the flip, featured "original parquet floors, acres of simple but beautifully executed mill work, long stretches of floor to ceiling glazing [ . . . ], four wood-burning fireplaces, and scads of built-ins in the unusually shaped rooms."
