Aniston takes a loss after selling New York apartments

Jennifer Aniston has been hit with a $500,000 loss in the property market after selling off her New York apartments, a year after purchasing the two adjoining pads for just over $7 million .

The former Friends star gave up her Beverly Hills base last year (11) and made plans to move to the Big Apple, where she grew up, with boyfriend Justin Theroux.

She scooped up two condominiums in Manhattan's trendy West Village area and planned on combining the properties to form her ideal home, but, after a brief stint in New York, Aniston decided to return to the West Coast.

She revealed, "We tried New York (but) it felt like I was (living) in a fishbowl. Justin still has an apartment there… It was a little rough with the paparazzi. It didn't feel like the New York I grew up in and knew."

The actress recently managed to offload the apartment - albeit at the cut price of $6.5 million , according to the New York Post's Page Six column.

Aniston has since bought a $21 million mansion in Bel Air, California.
