In the homes of Jennifer Aniston
International design authority Architectural Digest has put together a snapshot of famed private Jennifer Aniston’s real estate portfolio, detailing six properties the actor has called home over the past two decades, each boasting its own distinct history, aesthetic, and history.
With an estimated net worth of around $ 300 million, Hollywood star Aniston has a keen eye for designer homes, including her current Bel Air mansion designed by none other than the Los Angeles-based architect. A. Quincy Jones.
Aniston has made a point of keeping his personal life out of the spotlight throughout his career. So it’s understandable that his residences have always been little havens away from Hollywood.
From her marital home with Brad Pitt, a $ 13.1 million Beverly Hills freak the couple spent three years renovating, to their current $ 20.97 million mansion in Bel Air, Aniston has dedicated a time. and an incalculable energy in personalizing their homes to maximize both comfort and privacy.
“If I weren’t an actress, I would like to be a designer,” she said. said Architectural Digest in 2018. âI like the process. There is something about the choice of fabrics and finishes that feeds my soul.
Of Greek descent, Aniston gained international fame for his role as Rachel Green in the TV sitcom Friends (1994-2004), for which she obtained Prime-time emmy, Golden Globe, and Guild of Film Actors rewards.
Since her career progressed in the 1990s, she has become one of the highest paid actresses in the world and has appeared in numerous magazines on the lists of the most beautiful women in the world.
Here are six properties which, according to Architectural summaryJennifer Aniston has shared with her partners and called home for the past twenty years, each capturing elements of the super star’s personality and tastes.
A year after their wedding, Aniston and then-actor Pitt together bought a 12,000-square-foot French Norman-style house in Beverly Hills for $ 13.1 million.
Designed by famed Southern California architect Edwin Wallace Neff, the mansion was originally built in 1934.
Aniston and Pitt extended and renovated the property to include a private screening room, heated marble floors in the kitchen and a pub room with wood floors from a 200 year old French chateau.
They also added a multi-million dollar tennis court and guesthouse.
The Hollywood A-list couple spent a total of three years renovating the space and eventually sold it for $ 28 million in 2006 after their divorce in 2005.
After her split from Pitt, Aniston reportedly rented a 1,531 square foot beach house in Malibu for two years.
The house, which was owned by Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, had three bedrooms and three bathrooms and was located along the coast.
However, not much is known about the house itself, which is probably how Aniston preferred it.
Aniston says she knew her Harold W. Levitt-designed Beverly Hills mansion was supposed to be hers the moment she saw it.
“I never doubted that the house would be mine one day” she said Architectural Digest in 2010.
Aniston paid $ 13.5 million for the hillside residence in 2006.
She then spent the following years working with designer Stephen Shadley to transform it into a Balinese-inspired retreat, complete with koi ponds, Brazilian cumaru eaves, and heated travertine floors on the veranda.
Aniston nicknamed the house “Ohana”, which means extended family in Hawaiian, and loved to welcome and entertain themselves in the “glamorous and old-fashioned Hollywood” retreat.
She eventually parted ways with the 10,000 square foot single story home in 2011 after listing it for $ 42 million; it ultimately sold for $ 38 million.
A month after Aniston sold “Ohana,” she and her partner Justin Theroux rented a 1,761 square foot home just north of Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills.
The two bedroom, two bathroom residence was much more modest than the other properties of Aniston but no less charming.
It featured hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and a state-of-the-art kitchen with white marble countertops.
Perhaps the $ 3 million house’s most enviable feature, however, was its perspective. Perched high in the hills, the view from the grounds of the property was breathtaking.
The couple reportedly paid $ 20,000 per month for the rental.
That same year, the former Friends star shelled out $ 7.01 million for two condos in the West Village, one of which was a penthouse with original hardwood floors and a 900 square foot wraparound deck. .
She initially intended to combine the two homes into a single mega-unit that would measure over 2,000 square feet, but eventually problems with the paparazzi led her to put them back on the market a few months later.
Aniston sold them at a loss for $ 6.5 million in 2012.
Aniston was not missing a beat when the East Coast relocation failed, spending $ 20.97 million for the A. Quincy Jones-designed Bel Air mansion later that year.
She once again teamed up with Stephen Shadley to reinvent the mid-century home to be less minimalist and more comfortable and welcoming.
The Calacatta marble bathtub in Aniston’s current Bel Air mansion was custom made by its designer.
“Jen is drawn to wood, stone and bronze, materials that have real substance and depth” Shadley told AD.
âNo matter how beautiful or glamorous something is, it has to be warm and inviting. “
Aniston continues to own the 8,500 square foot residence today.
