Jennifer Aniston is officially the Hollywood queen of real estate.
She just treated herself to an early birthday present: a new mansion in California's Bel Air neighborhood, according to a TMZ report. She reportedly paid $21 million for the property, $3 million less than the asking price. The deal should be finalized on Wednesday.
The property takes up almost two acres, and the house has more than 8,000 square feet of space. There are four bedrooms and six bathrooms, plus city and ocean views. The property also has a small vineyard, so the actress may not have to look too far to find a bottle of wine to enjoy with dinner.
The purchase comes after Aniston sold her Beverly Hills mansion in 2011. That house had a little less than 10,000 square feet and went through some intense renovation, according to the housing Web site Hooked On Houses. She discussed her decision to sell that house with People magazine.
I couldn't sleep and I sort of had one of those moments where I went, I really need to simplify, she told People. My life needs to be simplified and clear out the clutter.
Aniston made another major purchase last year: an apartment in New York City's Gramercy neighborhood.
She has been shacking up with actor and and screenwriter beau Justin Theroux in a two-bedroom rental in Hollywood Hills, according to a Daily Mail report.
Judging by the photos posted by TMZ of the new house, and photos of the actress' old mansion posted by Architectural Digest, her new digs appear to be much lighter and airier, with more windows to allow for plenty of natural lighting.
So, will Aniston and Theroux live together in her new mansion?
Things do seem to be going well for the couple. They were spotted over the weekend on a double date with Aniston's Horrible Bosses costar, Jason Bateman, and his wife, Amanda Anka, looking attentive and coupley, according to a People magazine report.
They are costarring in the upcoming comedy Wanderlust, which hits theaters on Feb. 24. The movie is about a married couple, played by Aniston and Paul Rudd, who lose their wealth and decide to try living on a commune.
Hot date. New movie. And now a new home. Aniston, you go, girl!
