Brad and Jen’s old Beverly Hills estate sells at big discount
The 1930s-era estate hit the market asking $56M
The Beverly Hills home once owned by Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston has sold more than a year after hitting the market, and at a steep discount from its list price.
The most recent owner, hedge funder Jonathan Brooks, sold the Wallace Neff-designed home for $32.5 million, a 42 percent discount from the $56 million it was listed for in April 2019, according to the Los Angeles Times. In March, the price had been lowered for $44 million.
The mansion was built in 1934 for actors Fredric March and Florence Eldridge. Other past owners include a Vanderbilt, Shirley Burden, and publishing heiress Wallis Annenberg.
Pitt and Aniston bought the house in the early 2000s for $13.5 million. The actors renovated and expanded the estate, which is now 12,000 square feet. They sold it to Brooks for $28 million in 2006, a year after they divorced. Among their additions was a screening room.
The two-story home has five bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. The grounds total over an acre and include a pool, a sunken tennis court added by Brooks, and a pavilion with a guest suite.
Susan Smith of Hilton & Hyland had the listing, while Justin Huchel and Drew Fenton, also of Hilton & Hyland, represented the unnamed buyer. [LAT] — Dennis Lynch
