Jennifer Aniston home in Beverly HillsJennifer Aniston has fallen in love again. This time, it appears she's totally smitten with New York City. It happens to the best of us ...
While we're still wiping up our huge puddle of drool over the newly remodeled 10,000-square-foot Beverly Hills home of Jennifer Aniston, the actress is already totally over it and put the big daddy up for sale. The Los Angeles home, currently on the market for a fat $42 million, hasn't even sold yet and Aniston's already shacking up with her rebound in New York City.
So what's up with the real estate change of heart? Well, Aniston told People:
I couldn't sleep and I sort of had one of those moments where I went, I really need to simplify. 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.
Wow, this sounds an awful like Oprah's epiphany that she wasn't a fancy modern penthouse person or an ocean view person. Gosh, rich people are so hard to please.
So, moving right along, Jennifer Aniston purchased two apartments in the West Village -- an 18th-floor penthouse for $5.9 million (formerly owned by celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger; see photos on Elle Decor) and a one-bedroom apartment on the floor below for $1.8 million. Of course, while you can take the woman out of the immense square footage, you can't take the immense square footage out of the woman. It sounds like Aniston is also in another negotiation to buy another one-bedroom in the same building.
Of course, Aniston plans to combine all the apartments to make a larger 2,700-square-foot home with more than 900-square-feet of outdoor terrace space. Sounds like another big remodel is in the works for the actress. Hope she doesn't "get over NYC" by the time she gets this place just right.
Hmm, does Jennifer Aniston just like breaking them in and then letting them go? We shall see.
