Actress Jennifer Aniston has sold her Beverly Hills estate, which had been listed for $42 million.

Weeks or months can pass before a sales price appears in the public records, but area real estate agents report the Trousdale Estates home went for

$35 million to $38 million. At the lower end of the price range, that's $3,500 a square foot, an area record.

Designed by Hal Levitt, the restored 1970 house is nearly 10,000 square feet. It contains two living rooms, two kitchens, a gym, five bedrooms and 71/2 bathrooms. Outdoor amenities on the acre site include a swimming pool, a spa, ponds, fountains, an alfresco living room, fireplaces and another kitchen.

Aniston, 42, starred this year with Adam Sandler in the comedy "Just Go With It," but she is still best known to TV audiences for her Emmy-winning role on "Friends" (1994-2004).

She bought the property in 2006 for $13.5 million, according to public records.

Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills South, had the listing.

Features include a 4,200-bottle wine tasting room, an office and a swimming pool. The restored 6,674-square-foot house, which has ocean and city views, contains four bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

The seller is film producer Gary Levinsohn, whose work includes "Saving Private Ryan" (1998), "The Patriot" (2000) and "Snakes on a Plane" (2006).

He bought the property in 1998 for $3,275,000, according to public records.

Among exterior features are an outdoor living room, a three-tier waterfall and an eight-person spa.

The multilevel home, built in 1992 and centered on a courtyard, includes a beamed cathedral ceiling in the living room, a fitness room, a media room, five bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms in 7,100 square feet.

The courtyard contains a meditation garden with a fountain and fire pit. A two-story guesthouse is adjacent to a swimming pool and spa.

Simpson, 26, is working on her fourth album and launching a tween fashion line with her sister Jessica Simpson. She starred in the 2004-05 reality TV series "The Ashlee Simpson Show" following a regular stint on "7th Heaven" (2002-04). More recently she appeared on "Melrose Place" (2009-10).

She filed for divorce from bassist and lyricist Wentz in February.
