The storied Samuel-Novarro House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's son Lloyd Wright is officially sold, Curbed LA reports. Originally built for silent film star Ramon Novarro's assistant and companion Louis Samuel in the late '20s, the home has since then passed through the hands of composer Leonard Bernstein as well as actresses Christina Ricci and Diane Keaton (who commissioned a restoration while living there). The Mayan-esque, copper-accented residence last sold in 2006 for $2.8M and has spent the last several years hopping on and off the market, reaching a peak ask of $4.5M at one point. Now, two months after it was relisted at $4M, the house has been snatched up for $3.8M, presumably by someone who doesn't mind what Keaton calls "very, very small bedrooms".
