Jennifer Aniston Sells Beverly Hills Manse; Heads to NYC (photos) 1Jennifer Aniston is selling the sprawling Beverly Hills home she bought in 2006 for $13.6 million. She’s now seeking $42 million for the 9,000 square foot residence, despite the depressed California real estate market.

Aniston has reportedly bought apartments on the 17th and 18th floors of 299 West 12th St. in the West Village in New York City. She plans to turn them into a 2,700 square foot duplex unit.

The apartments have “huge casement windows and doors from every room to a beautifully planted roof terrace with panoramic north, south, east and west views of the New York Harbor to the Empire State Building and more,” according to The New York Daily News.

Although her New York apartment is huge by Manhattan standards, Aniston said she decided to sell her Beverly Hills home to “simplify” her life.”

“My life felt really cluttered,” she said. “I couldn’t sleep and I sort of had one of those moments where I went, I really need to simplify,” she said.

“My life needs to be simplified and clear out the clutter. And along with that thought came, ‘I should sell my house.’ … I had the realization that this is just too much for me. I’m not this person.”

She once told Architectural Digest that the house felt “like a hug,” and “vibrates with the love that created it.”

Aniston named the property Ohana, a Hawaiian term for extended family, and hired interior designer Stephen Shadley to completely redo the property.

The house has stunning city views, a game room, Japanese spa, powder room, office and sprawling professional grade kitchen.

Among its more personalized and exotic features, it has a Koi pond in the front entrance hall.

It also has a swimming pool with a cabana, five bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms.

Aniston also added smart house technology, a biometric security system for both her wine cellar and jewellery cabinet, and a “two-in-one kitchen.”

It includes a professional catering kitchen behind a family-sized kitchen.

Although People said the home would be marketed privately, photos of the property’s interior are widely available on several real estate sites.
