The Beverly Hills love nest that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt called home during their marriage is on the block – for $28 million – the Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday, which happened to be the same day that the 4 1/2-year union of the actors was officially dissolved.
The more than 10,000-sq.ft French Normandy house, originally designed by noted architect Wallace Neff for A Star Is Born actor Fredric March in the 1930s, was purchased by the Pitts in 2001 for about $13.5 million. They then spent two years refurbishing it and are now selling it as part of their divorce settlement.
Pitt, 41, and Aniston, 36, who occupied the home for not even two years, have since moved on to separate residences in Malibu. He recently has been much photographed on the Canadian location of his new movie The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith costar, Angelina Jolie, 30, and her two children.
Aniston recently told Oprah Winfrey on her syndicated TV show that she is ready to start dating again and said she’s now in a good place: “I’m not sitting somewhere dwelling on the past. I’m not fretting or obsessing about something in the future,” said the former Friends star.
Real-estate agents who have viewed the former couple’s home tell the Times that it contains such high-end features as a fully equipped screening room with black leather seating; tennis courts; imported mahogany floors; a stainless-steel kitchen; and an art studio with skylights.
The white living room walls are lacquered like a sports car, while the master bedroom suite features his and hers sitting rooms, one of which was converted into a large closet. The ground level features a bar with glass walls opening to an outdoor fireplace, pool and spa, the paper says.
