"I've been overseeing renovations of my homes for a long time, and I
have strong opinions about what I want and why," Courteney tells the magazine. "I
decided with this house…I wanted it to look like a modern barn." The secluded luxurious estate was designed by Courteney's good friend Trip Haenisch along with architect Michael Kovac.
The "Cougar Town" star describes the home's style this way: "very simple, with bronzed-steel trim, white walls, and wood floors. Nothing too cluttered and not a lot of fancy details…[it's] exactly how I want to live."
