1026 Ridgedale Drive, Beverly Hills, California, United States, 90210
An iconic French Normandy Revival property with ties to several celebrities has hit the market in Beverly Hills for $49,000,000. It was designed by famed architect Wallace Neff and built for actor Fredric March and wife, actress Florence Eldridge in 1934. It is also the former residence of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt. The couple reportedly spent three years renovating the property and lived in it for less than two years before divorcing and selling. It was then snapped up by Jonathan Brooks, a hedge fund executive, who is seeking quite the return on his investment. Brooks put his own stamp on the property, adding a tennis court with adjacent building and guest loft and giving the home a very contemporary feel throughout. Despite the upgrades, the 11,173 square foot residence still retains some of the charm and integrity of a bygone era in the finer details. There are five bedrooms, twelve bathrooms, a dining room that seats up to twenty, a bar room with original fireplace and a swimming pool out back. The property extends 1.19 acres and come with two gated entrances. It’s on the market for $49,000,000 with Hilton & Hyland.
