The Los Angeles architecture firm of Jones and Emmons designed this 8,500-square foot house in Bel-Air in 1965. In 01/2012, the movie and television star, Jennifer Aniston (b. 1969) purchased the residence for $22 million, down from an asking price of $29 million in 04/2011. The residence was sited on a 3-acre hilltop and, with its steel framing, designer A. Quincy Jones (1913-1979) could proportion extensive window and sliding door spaces to maximize views. Interior and exterior rooms surveyed the landscape 300 degrees around, from Downtown Los Angeles to the ocean. At this time, the property had a pool, numerous winding trails and a vineyard. It had been recently renovated, although Aniston was known for enjoying the process of remodeling her residences. She previously had lived in a rented a relatively small 1,761-square-foot house in the Hollywood Hills, a 10,000-square-foot residence in Beverly Hills, CA (which she sold for $38 million in a very weak luxury housing market), and a Malibu, CA, beachfront dwelling she shared with her former husband, actor Brad Pitt (b. 1963).

In 2012, this house contained four bedrooms, 6.5 baths, projection room, wine cellar, and carport.
