International design authority Architectural Digest has put together a peek inside the real estate portfolio of the famously private Jennifer Aniston, detailing six properties that the actor has called home over the past two decades, each displaying its own unique distinct history, aesthetic, and story.
With an estimated net worth of approximately $300 million, Hollywood A-lister Aniston has a keen eye for designer homes, including her current Bel Air mansion designed by none other than Los Angeles-based architect A. Quincy Jones.
Aniston has made it a point to keep her personal life out of the spotlight throughout her career, so understandably, her residences have always been little havens away from Hollywood.
From her marital home with Brad Pitt, a $13.1 million Beverly Hills behemoth that the couple spent three years renovating, to her current $20.97 million Bel Air mansion, Aniston has sunk countless time and energy into personalising her abodes to maximise both comfort and privacy.
“If I wasn’t an actress, I’d want to be a designer,” she told Architectural Digest in 2018. “I love the process. There’s something about picking out fabrics and finishes that feeds my soul.”
Greek-born Aniston rose to international fame for her role as Rachel Green on the television sitcom Friends (1994–2004), for which she earned Primetime Emmy, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild awards.
Since her career progressed in the 1990s, she has become one of the world's highest-paid actresses and has been included in numerous magazines' lists of the world's most beautiful women.
Here are six properties that, according to Architectural Digest, Jennifer Aniston has shared with her partners and called home over the past twenty years, each capturing elements of the super star’s personality and taste.
One year after their wedding, Aniston and then-husband actor Pitt together purchased a 12,000-square-foot French Normandy–style Beverly Hills home for $13.1 million.
Designed by renowned Southern California architect Edwin Wallace Neff, the mansion was initially built in 1934.
Aniston and Pitt expanded 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 château.
They also added a multimillion-dollar tennis court and a guest house.
The Hollywood A-list couple spent three years in total renovating the space and ultimately sold it for $28 million in 2006 following their divorce in 2005.
Following her split from Pitt, Aniston reportedly rented a 1,531-square-foot beach house in Malibu for two years.
The home, which belonged to Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, featured three bedrooms and three bathrooms and was located right along the coast.
However, not much is publicly known about the house itself, which is likely just how Aniston preferred it.
Aniston says that knew her Harold W. Levitt–designed Beverly Hills mansion was meant to be hers the moment she saw it.
“I never doubted the house would be mine one day,” she told Architectural Digest in 2010.
Aniston paid $13.5 million for the hillside residence in 2006.
She then spent the next few 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 lanai.
Aniston nicknamed the home “Ohana,” which means extended family in Hawaiian, and enjoyed hosting and entertaining in the “glamorous, old-fashioned Hollywood” retreat.
She finally parted ways with the 10,000-square-foot, single-story home in 2011 after listing it for $42 million; it eventually sold for $38 million.
One month after Aniston sold “Ohana,” she and then 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 considerably more modest than Aniston’s other properties but no less charming.
It featured hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and a state-of-the-art kitchen with white marble countertops.
Perhaps the most enviable feature of the $3 million home, however, was its views. Perched high up in the hills, the views from the property’s grounds were unobstructed.
The couple reportedly paid $20,000 a 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 terrace.
She initially intended to combine the two homes into one mega-unit that would measure over 2,000 square feet but ultimately, issues 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 didn’t miss a beat when the East Coast relocation fell through, shelling out $20.97 million for A. Quincy Jones-designed Bel Air mansion later that year.
She once again partnered up with Stephen Shadley to reimagine the mid-century house to be less minimal and more comfortable and inviting.
The Calacatta marble tub in Aniston's current Bel Air mansion was custom made by her designer.
“Jen is drawn to wood, stone, and bronze, materials that have real substance and depth,” Shadley told AD.
“No matter how beautiful or glamorous something is, it has to be warm and inviting.”
Aniston still owns the 8,500-square-foot residence today.
