Actress Jennifer Aniston has lived in a mansion she calls OHANA for years. Anyone who has ever seen the Lilo And Stitch movie by Walt Disney Pictures knows that Ohana means family — and that is exactly who Aniston invited as guests to share her luxury home with regularity. After her divorce from Brad Pitt and a number of very public breakups with Hollywood bachelors like musician John Mayer and actor Vince Vaughn, Aniston elected to remodel her celebrity home by removing the HIS AND HERS bathroom features, replacing Brad’s vanity area with a relaxing spa. In 2011, news broke on the celebrity gossip scene that Jennifer Aniston, presumably tired of the high upkeep and maintenance bills for a large home as a single woman, was planning to sell Ohana to the highest bidder. Was there truth to the rumor Jennifer Aniston was selling her celebrity home — and if so, was Jennifer Aniston able to quickly sell her house in a tough real estate market and economic recession? The answer is yes — and no one is quite sure, respectively. On March 3rd, the real estate blog CURBED posted the following reprint of the press announcement made by Coldwell Banker Real Estate that they has in fact procured the luxury home listing. The press release about Jennifer Aniston’s hose being for sale included photos of the luxury home you can see here. In the text, as you can read below, the company really touts the fact that the homeowner is a celebrity and used the Hollywood folklore about the owner and residents to inspire people who are not part of the Hollywood social scene but want to be included in owning a piece of history.
The Press Release that confirms Jennifer Aniston is selling her California celebrity home reads as follows. To date, there is no conformation she has been able to sell the celebrity home, so if you are buying, this is what you can get for the low, low price of $42 million:
The estate represents the epitome of indoor/outdoor living with effortless flow between the home and the grounds that lends itself to hosting a wide array of events, from intimate gatherings of friends and family to large-scale celebrations. The scale of the home is striking, with large rooms and soaring ceilings that foster a sense of freedom.
