Did sit-com star and rom-com movie queen Jennifer Aniston very quietly off-load a pair of New Your City apartments she scooped up less than a year ago for exactly—as per StreetEasy and our bejeweled abacus—$7,019,084?
Stranger things have happened.
A source "close to the building" tattled to the property gossips at the Daily News that Miz Aniston has already sold the apartments, "possibly to someone who already lives in the building." Did you hear the gasps heard 'round the celebrity real estate world. Did she really? Who bought them? Did she turn a profit? Endure a punishing loss? Anyone? Bueller?
The apartments were (and are) not listed on the open market and property records we perused do not yet reflect a transfer of ownership for either of Miz Aniston's unwanted aeries, a one bedroom apartment on the 17th floor and, directly above it, a one bedroom penthouse apartment with wrap around terrace and toe-curling, 270-degree city views.
Miz Aniston has been quite busy the last year shuffling the cards in her real estate property portfolio. Besides the buying and (rumored) selling of her New York City digs, within the last year she's also sold a freshly renovated and expanded Beverly Hills mansion for $35,000,000 to a yoga-minded Orange County-based mutual fund mogul, leased a comparatively tiny ranch-cottage at the tippy-top of the Bird Streets above Sunset Strip, and just weeks ago she and current man-beau Justin Theroux dropped a dramatic $20,970,000 on an real whopper of a house in Bel Air, a glassy, 8,500 (or so) square foot A. Quincy Jones-designed mid-century modern mansioin on more than three gated acres with separate guest house and poolside pavilion.
Between the fast-moving romance and the equally brisk real estate it's a God damn wonder Miz Aniston had two minutes in the last year to make movie and pal around with her deliciously smart-mouthed new b.f.f. Chelsea Handler.
