It's not often you get to see inside the homes of some of Hollywood's biggest stars, so take advantage of the opportunity Courteney Cox has given.
The actress opened up the doors of her Malibu home to Elle magazine, and allowed cameras to snap images of her barn-inspired beach house. The midcentury home sits above the Pacific on two acres that include guest cottages, a tennis house and court, a screening room and a saltwater swimming pool. Monica Gellar-like attention to detail went into the decor, which is highlighted in a slideshow right here.
One of the things Cox likes most about her home: its privacy. Her last house sat level with the public beach and “I couldn’t take a walk without having my picture taken,” Cox said.
