The newlywed home that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston shared in Beverly Hills from 2001 to 2006 is sitting on the market with a price tag of $44.5 million.
Even though the supercouple announced their separation in 2005, the estate at 1026 Ridgedale Drive in Beverly Hills “is one of Southern California’s most romantic homes,” according to TopTenREalEstateDeals.com.
It was just after their Malibu wedding that the A-list Hollywood couple bought the five-bedroom, 12-bath French Normandy Revival-style estate with canyon views, hedged landscaping, a lighted swimming pool, meandering stoned courtyard and patios, multiple fireplaces in the bedroom, dining room and bar area and an outdoor bedroom over the tennis court.
After buying the home, the actors immediately started a three-year renovation, TopTenREalEstateDeals.com reported. They replaced the kitchen floor with heated marble, designed and installed a pub with floors from a 200-year-old French château and added a private screening room. They also put in the tennis court and pavilion with guesthouse on the upper level.
The home sold in 2006 to a hedge fund executive who completed the renovation.
The estate was originally built in 1934 for actor Fredric March, one of the first movie star mansions in Beverly Hills.
The 11,173-square-foot home sits on a little over an acre of land on a quiet cul-de-sac with gated entrances on two streets The dining room is capable of seating 20 guests. The barroom contains the original fireplace. There’s also an eat-in gourmet kitchen and gym.
The house was listed earlier this year for $49 million. It was once going for $56 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Pitt was nominated for best actor for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and “Moneyball” and won an Oscar for producing “12 Years a Slave.” He recently starred in “Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood.”
Aniston’s career took off during her role in the television sitcom “Friends.” She’s starred in numerous films, including “Horrible Bosses” and “We’re the Millers.”
