Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s marriage ended long ago, but their former Beverly Hills abode lives on, and is now on the market.
Hedge fund manager Jonathan Brooks, the current owner, is offering the 1930s-era estate for $56 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. Brooks renovated the 12,000-square-foot main home, the Journal reported.
Aniston and Pitt paid $13.5 million for the home in 2001, a year after they married. The Hollywood power couple lived there for two years, according to the Journal. The mansion was designed by Wallace Neff, who created opulent homes for the stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
Many of those estates still command high prices and remain popular with celebrities and the super-rich. Elvis Presley, Howard Hughes, and Prince Rainier of Monaco were among the former residents of a Neff-designed 13,400-square-foot home in Bel Air that hit the market a year ago for $37.5 million.
Brooks, who purchased the former Aniston-Pitt home a year after their 2005 divorce, added a separate guest loft to the main home, along with a tennis court, according to the report. [WSJ] — Dennis Lynch
