Jennifer Aniston bought the estate in 2006 for $13.5 million (GBP9 million), and then spent over two years renovating it. She moved in just before her 40th birthday in 2009, according to People.com.
She tells the magazine she felt the need to sell her dream house after having an epiphany while on a recent trip to London.
The actress explains, "My life felt really cluttered. I couldn't sleep and I sort of had one of those moments where I went, 'I really need to simplify, my life needs to be simplified'... And along with that thought came, 'I should sell my house'.
"I had the realisation that this is just too much for me. I'm not this person."
She recently confessed she dreamed of moving out of Los Angeles and finding a "little spot" in New York, where she celebrated her 42nd birthday last week (ends11Feb11), adding, "I grew up here, I miss it, there's nothing like the city that just is the city of every man; it's all walks and I love that."
