Ryan Murphy — the producer behind “Glee,” “American Horror Story” and “Ratched” — unloaded the Beverly Hills abode formerly owned by “Annie Hall” actress Diane Keaton for $16.25 million on April 22.
He had been trying to sell the home since before the coronavirus pandemic began, when he listed the house for nearly $18 million in September 2019. The 55-year-old producer and his husband, David Miller, bought the house from Keaton in 2010.
The couple, who married in 2012, purchased the 94-year-old estate under the “Ohara Neely Trust,” an LLC seemingly based on the “Valley of the Dolls” character Neely O’Hara. “Its colorful tilework … provided instant cheer,” Ryan Murphy wrote last year in an Architectural Digest feature.
But when life became hectic — they now have three sons, 8-year-old Logan, 6-year-old Ford and 8-month-old Griffin — they wanted something less colorful, so they moved to a minimalistic house in Brentwood in 2013, Ryan Murphy wrote.
