Diane Keaton's latest real estate purchase may be just as quirky as the actress herself. The timeless star recently scooped up an adobe estate in Tucson, Arizona, for $1.5 million, Trulia reports. Located in Barrio Viejo, the desert property is a far cry from Keaton's $17.5 million former New York City apartment. Instead of the clean white walls and herringbone wood flooring that defined her NYC pad, you'll find exposed adobe walls and long beamed ceilings in her new Southwestern home.

The one-of-a-kind buy spans 4572 square feet and houses four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. Built in the 1880s, the structure has since been restored, although the original plaster and the traditional adobe style remain throughout the home. The desert-chic abode comes across as an idyllic escape from the modern world, featuring quaint sitting rooms, a library, and décor that embraces the natural desert surroundings.

While Keaton was clearly charmed by the property, the actress will likely add this home to her ongoing list of successful house flipping endeavors, Tucson.com reports. Take a look inside the unique adobe home below.

Playful overhead lighting seems to be a running theme in the property. Here, you can spot two different pendant lights, each with their own look.

The exposed walls of this bedroom are raw and unrefined. They stand in contrast with the dark, glossy hardwood floors and contemporary rug.

The master bedroom also features a sitting area with enough room for a sofa and indoor plant beneath one of the many windows.

The master bathroom is a quirky space with retro pendant hanging lights above the pair of sinks, unique tiling, and exposed brick walls that collide with the wood beamed ceiling.

In the backyard, desert landscaping coexists with large, full trees. There's plenty of room for entertaining and space for an outdoor dining set up.
