Jennifer Aniston Lived at This L.A. Compound While Filming ‘Friends’

The Laurel Canyon compound that Jennifer Aniston rented while starring in the hit TV sitcom “Friends” has been the home of numerous

performers, including Hollywood couple Corbin Bernsen and Amanda Pays and Spanish cinematographer Nestor Alemdros, who won an

Academy Award for the 1978 film “Days of Heaven.”

Known as “The Crown Jewel of Laurel Canyon,” the property “has unassuming charm,” said Wendy Moore of Compass, who listed it last month. It also was the longtime home of actor and producer Beach Dickerson, who appeared in a variety of films from 1956 to 1991, according to published reports.

Scotty Bowers, who made a name for himself as a procurer of prostitutes for Hollywood’s A-List in the 1940s and ’50s, and who was the subject of the 2017 documentary “Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood,” was another famous inhabitant, according to published reports.

As for Aniston, she lived in the A-frame guest house during some of the time she was filming “Friends,” which ran from 1994 to 2004.

“It feels like Old Hollywood,” Moore said. “It’s very original, and it has its original feel.”

The compound, which property records show last sold in 2020 for $2.04 million, was renovated by Bernsen, who played a divorce attorney on TV’s “L.A. Law,” and Pays, who portrayed Theora Jones in the “Max Headroom” franchise, Moore said.

The property is now in a family trust, according to property records.

The compound’s greatest asset, Moore said, is the view. “It’s one of the best I’ve seen in L.A.”
