Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt's former home in Beverly Hills is for sale for R779 million, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The current owner is Jonathan Brooks, a hedge fund executive who founded Smithwood Partners. Brooks bought the home from the actors in 2006 after their divorce, according to The Journal.

Aniston and Pitt bought the 1114 square metre California house for R182 million in 2001 from the entertainment attorney Ken Ziffren and spent three years renovating it, adding features including heated marble floors in the kitchen and a pub room with wood floors imported from a 200-year-old French castle.

The home, described by The Journal as a "French Normandy Revival property," has four bedrooms and comes with a swimming pool, ample outdoor space, and a championship tennis court. It's listed by Susan Smith of Hilton & Hyland.

The R776 million price tag may seem extravagant, but it's in line with other homes in the neighborhood. According to The Journal, a neighboring home that once belonged to Danny DeVito recently sold for about $66 million.
