Diane Keaton fans you’re in luck! The A-Lister’s former Laguna Beach Cottage could be yours for a cool $4.29 million. And it’s just as charming as the actress herself! The five-bedroom, four-full-and-one-half-bathroom retreat was owned and restored by Keaton in the early 2000s.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Keaton spent two years renovating the interiors of the 1920s bungalow, then put it back on the market in 2003. While we don’t know exactly which of her finishes remain, the historic charmer is definitely outfitted for modern living.
