Leading lady Jennifer Aniston has bought a midcentury house in Bel-Air that was listed at $24.9 million.
The seller was former Maguire Properties Chief ExecutiveRobert F. Maguire III, who restored the 8,500-square-foot house designed by A. Quincy Jones and built in 1965. The sales price has not yet appeared on the public record.
Set on a 3-acre-plus promontory with unobstructed ocean and city views, the house features an open floor plan, walls of glass, a bar, a projection room, a wine cellar, four bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms. The grounds include a guesthouse, swimming pool and vineyards.
Aniston, 43, made a name for herself on television for her Emmy-winning role on "Friends" (1994-2004). She starred last year in "Just Go With It" and "Horrible Bosses," and found time to sell her Beverly Hills estate for $35 million. Her film "Wanderlust" is due out this month.
Maguire founded his company in 1965, took it public in 2003 and left day-to-day operations in 2008. The Los Angeles office landlord is now called MPG Office Trust.
At the time Maguire bought the Bel-Air property in 2000 it was listed at $9 million.
