Jennifer Aniston renovates her home with the single girl's life in mind

If you rip out her heart, she'll rip out your...bathroom? The March issue of Architectural Digest has a first look at Jennifer Aniston's Beverly Hills mansion (following an extensive, two-and-a-half year interior renovation). Among the many design modifications, the actress's master bath is now more conducive to single life than coupledom:

"[The house] originally had his-and-hers baths, but Aniston has turned the 'his' into a spa bath with a soaking tub," the magazine reports. The article later quotes Aniston saying her new home is "like a big hug" and it "vibrates with the love that created it."

This all sounds inviting for one, but it may not be ideal for prospective romantic partners. Last year, the 41-year-old's then-beau John Mayer described her one-story dwelling as rather intimidating: "There is no normal thing in the Aniston house," he told Ellen on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." "You won't find a light switch. The light switch is not antiquated—there is a six-button light panel. It does everything. The top button is 'on,' and the button right below that one seems to be an air horn, so in the middle of the night it's very difficult."

Complex and high-tech as it may be, Aniston's new home was not meant to be lonesome. The Zen-inspired space was built with entertaining in mind, featuring an expansive kitchen and a dining room that seats 24, along with a 1920s Thai gong that summons diners. The actress has already hosted several A-list parties, including a housewarming bash and a holiday party in December for 100+ guests, among them celeb pals Courteney Cox and Laura Dern.
