Pitt and Aniston’s former abode sells for a Friendly fee


A Beverly Hills estate designed by Hollywood architect Wallace Neff, and extensively remodelled decades later by then-owners Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, is coming on the market for $56 million.

The approximately 12,000-square-foot estate dates back to the 1930s, when Mr. Neff designed the property for actor Fredric March and his wife, actress Florence Eldridge, according to the listing agent, Susan Smith of Hilton & Hyland. Mr. Neff was known for building some of the most recognisable estates of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

The property was later owned by philanthropist Wallis Annenberg, who sold it to entertainment attorney Ken Ziffren, Mr. Ziffren said. Mr. Pitt and Ms. Aniston bought the property from Mr. Ziffren for about $13.5 million, according to public records, and spent more than three years remodelling it. They added heated marble kitchen floors, a private screening room and, for a pub room, wood floors imported from a 200-year-old French château.

The current owner is Jonathan Brooks, a hedge fund executive. He bought the property in 2006, following Ms. Aniston and Mr. Pitt’s divorce, public records show. Ms. Smith said her client renovated the house, and added a championship tennis court with a pavilion and a separate guest loft.

Sitting on about 1.2 acres, the French Normandy Revival property also has an octagonal tower, four bedrooms, a gym, a dining room that seats as many as 20, a barroom with an original fireplace and a sitting room that opens onto a large swimming pool and outdoor living space.

An estate next door formerly owned by actors Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman was recently purchased by Australian billionaire James Packer, according to Hilton & Hyland. That property sold for around $66 million, property records show.
