Own Jennifer Aniston’s Former Rental Home at a Deep Discount
The cushy pad Jen and beau Justin Theroux lived in while their Bel Air mansion was being remodeled is now on sale for millions less.
Such a deal! Usually an A-List celebrity presence in a home raises the value by at least a million, but the asking price of the Trousdale Estates home rented by Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux while their Bel Air mansion was being remodeled, has recently been reduced by $4.6 million.
The owners wanted $14.5 million for the modern home, described as “Southeast Asian Zen,” when they first put it on the market in July 2011. By May 2012 they had reduced the price to $11.5 million, but decided to take it off the market when Aniston and Theroux offered to rent it for a whopping $40,000 per month. The celebrity couple lived there for about a year and a half while they renovated their $21 million Bel Air mansion, and now that rental is back on the market for a more modest $9.9 million.

Not that almost $10 million is modest. But the home does have interesting architectural features that certainly must have appealed to the mod-loving Aniston. It was originally designed in 1962 by popular modern architect Hal Levitt, and has been expertly updated with many high-tech touches added. For example, it’s wired with state-of-the-art RTI Smart Home technology, and it has a cutting-edge HD theater and entertainment system.
But it’s the sleek, modern Bulthaup kitchen that sports the tastiest updates, including floating appliance cubes, a Monobloc stainless steel island, warm bronze and striped walnut cabinetry and appliances by Leibherr and Miele.
The 6,600-square-foot home has five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, with the master suite being the piece de resistance. It has custom walnut walk-in closets, his-and-hers baths with Calacatta Borghini marble, Ann Sacks tiles, heated flooring, steam showers and a private outdoor shower.
Interesting features elsewhere in the home include a stone-lined, temperature controlled wine room, an entertainment bar with custom cabinetry, walnut shelving and an LED glass lighting installation. And did we mention the ocean and city views from most rooms in the house?
Outside there’s a zero-edge, mosaic tile lagoon pool and spa with a nearby Lynx outdoor kitchen, mature landscaping and multiple cascading water features. There’s also a 12-foot gate guarding the property, which provides plenty of privacy.
The photos are recent, and it's a certainty that Aniston left the home in excellent condition. Perhaps the owners were asking too much in the first place. We'll see what the market bears. But in the meantime, we’ll keep you posted on the status of Aniston’s latest residential situation. Whether or not it includes Theroux at any given moment is uncertain. But one thing is for sure. Relationships fade, but real estate endures – although sometimes it undergoes a price chop.More Celebrity Homes:
