Leading lady Jennifer Aniston has bought a midcentury house in Bel-Air that was listed at $24.9 million.
The seller was Maguire Properties former chief executive Robert 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 open-floorplan house features 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, 42, made a name for herself on television for her Emmy-winning role on "Friends" (1994-2004). Her film "Wanderlust" is due out this month. She starred last year in "Just Go With It" and "Horrible Bosses."
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 he bought the Bel-Air property in 2000 it was listed at $9 million.
Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills South office had the listing. The sale closed outside the Multiple Listing Service system.
