According to Architectural Digest, she has owned numerous properties at different points in her life. When Brad Pitt and Aniston got married, the duo shelled out $13.1 million for a 12,000sqft French Normandy–style Beverly Hills home. The mansion was originally built in 1934 and was designed by renowned Southern California architect Edwin Wallace Neff. The couple renovated this house for more than three years. However, it was sold in 2006 after their divorce.
