It seems there is some truth to recent rumors that starlet Jennifer Aniston is ditching her Beverly Hills home for a swank Manhattan pad. People reports the actress, who souped-up her California home with solar panels and other eco-friendly measures thanks to the inspiration of Julia Roberts, has listed her mansion for a mere $42 million.

Aniston purchased the home five years ago for $13.5 million and started doing renovations right around the time she dated soft-rocker John Mayer in 2008. The actress even gave her sweeping estate a pet name: Ohana, which means “family” in Hawaiian.

Despite spending around $15 million and more than two years on environmentally sound renovations such as solar arrays for her roof, solar-cell-embedded chimney covers, and extensive water-conserving landscaping, the actress would like to wipe the slate clean.

“My life needs to be simplified and [I need to] clear out the clutter. And along with that thought came, ‘I should sell my house,’” the Just Go With It star told People. “I had the realization that this is just too much for me. I’m not this person.”

The lucky buyer of Aniston’s home will be treated to a solar-heating system, drought-resistant plants, all-organic materials, an ocean view, and more.

No word yet as to what sort of favors Aniston will do for the environment when she moves into her new place. However, her proven track record—including saving dolphins with Paul Rudd and Naomi Watts and donating almost as much money to the Haiti earthquake recovery as Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney—has us hopeful.

    after spending 18.5 million saying “mwaaaa, it’s not me”. that’s pretty cool, i can dig that. Just follow your heart to Manhattan and don’t stick to the old house just because of the money. :-)
