When I say oceanfront, I mean REALLY oceanfront.

If you thought living a block away from the beach was good enough, just wait until you get a taste of living directly on the beach—as one can imagine, the two definitely don't compare. Award-winning actress Diane Keaton agrees, and now you can live the life of a Hollywood star (on the beach, of course) in her former Laguna Beach pad. The oceanfront home has been on and off the market for four years, but it recently surfaced with an asking price of $15 million, which is around $3 million lower than the original $17.995 million asking price in June 2015. (For context, Keaton's 1977 hit movie Annie Hall cost an estimated $4 million to make, according to IMDB estimates. Though if you adjust for inflation, that's like $16.7 million, so just a little more than the cost of the house, but I digress.)

Back to the house: Built in 1928, the Spanish Mediterranean estate has many features from its previous time period that wouldn't be around today, according to the listing, including a unique beach garage on the sand and gorgeous architectural details. The property has 4,158 square feet of living space, which includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The master suite includes high vaulted ceilings, a custom dressing area, and a spa bathroom—but the best part of the bedroom has to be the private balcony that gives you views looking right over the Pacific Ocean. Seriously, what could be better than that?

If privacy is part of your concern while searching for your forever home, this Laguna Beach property should check all of the boxes—with high walls and even higher hedges, the interior courtyard is a private area filled with lush gardens that was just made for a summer party. The area has a stone terrace complete with an outdoor fireplace, barbecue grill, and pizza oven.

989 Cliff Drive is located Located from downtown Laguna's restaurants and galleries, and right on the City Trolley route, so traveling locally is easy. Now if only you had an award-winning actress's salary to scoop it up.
