March 5, 2011 Actress Jennifer Aniston has listed her Beverly Hills estate for sale at $42 million.
Designed by Hal Levitt, the 1970 house sits on about an acre in the Trousdale Estates area. The indoor-outdoor home of glass, wood and stone was designed for entertaining and for use by an extended family.
The redesigned and expanded interior living space, restored by Aniston and designer Stephen Shadley over more than two years, encompasses nearly 10,000 square feet. The formal living room is paneled in rosewood, a secondary living room has a wet bar, and the five bedrooms and 71/2 bathrooms are complemented by two kitchens, a gym and a three-car garage.
Water features include a swimming pool, spa, ponds and fountains throughout the property. An alfresco living room, fireplaces and another kitchen are among the outdoor amenities.
In an Architectural Digest cover story just one year ago, Aniston declared, "I can't tell you specifically the feeling I had when I walked through the doors for the first time, except to say I knew I was home." She has since told People magazine she is selling the house to simplify her life. Aniston bought the property in 2006 for $13.5 million following her divorce from Brad Pitt. The cost of the architectural renovation and redecoration was not divulged.
