Justin Theroux wants smaller house

Los Angeles: Actor Justin Theroux feels uncomfortable in the Bel Air mansion he currently shares with fiancée Jennifer Aniston so wants to sell up and find a smaller place.

The 42-year-old actor and his fiancee have met with estate agents to discuss selling their Chicago mansion, which they have spent around $3 million renovating since buying it less than two years ago, because he is used to more intimate properties after living in New York for so long.

"Justin is a New York native and is far more comfortable in a smaller space," contactmusic.com quoted a source as saying.

"The Bel Air mansion can feel more like a show home than somewhere they can relax together. It`s not officially listed as Jen`s got a property mediator sourcing potential buyers first. She wants to see if she can get a good return on it before placing it on the market.

"If that happens, she`s looking into buying a new penthouse in New York and keeping her Hollywood Hills property as an LA base," the source added.

The couple are said to already have their eyes on a potential new home, the $3 million Beverly Hills property they rented while their Bel Air mansion was being renovated.
