Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's former mansion sells for $33m

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s former Beverly Hills mansion now has a new owner.

The 12,000-square-foot Tudor-style home was purchased for $32.5 million in an off-market sale to an unnamed buyer, earning more than double what the celebrity couple originally paid for it, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The actors originally bought the home back in 2001 for $13.5 million, according to The Wall Street Journal

The mansion was listed last year for $56 million by Susan Smith of Hilton & Hyland brokerage, but it was taken off the market in March after the asking price was dropped to $44.5 million.

‘No one has really changed the exterior of the home. It sits on over an acre. It’s a street to street lot, which is unusual in Beverly Hills,’ Smith told TODAY Home.

Brad, 56, and Jennifer, 51, sold the property in 2006, a year after their divorce was finalized. 

The classic home dates back to 1934 and features four bedrooms and twelve full bathrooms.

The actor Frederic March, best known for his Oscar-winning performances in Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde (1931) and The Best Years Of Our Lives (1946), originally built the home, designed by Wallace Neff, for himself and his wife Florence Eldridge. 

There’s also a two-story guest house located next to a recently built tennis court, giving the home five bedrooms in total.  

The home was significantly expanded and updated by Brad and Jen during their years in it.

Heated marble floors have transformed the kitchen into a more inviting space, while the dining room boasts an elegant fireplace and can seat 20 people.

The mansion features a bar that can be converted into a screening area with a digital projector that can rise from the floor, a fitting touch for Hollywood royalty.

The master bedroom features spacious vaulted ceilings, and the new home owners will be able to stay in shape without leaving the comfort of their home thanks to an exercise room located on the top floor.

Some of the mansion’s high-profile former occupants include the Vanderbilt family member Shirley Burden and the heiress and philanthropist Wallis Annenberg. 

Brad and Jennifer at one time lived next to Danny DeVito, though his home was later sold and split into two, with Australian billionaire James Packer purchasing one of the halves for $66 million, according to CNBC
