Ben Affleck has put his Pacific Palisades mansion on the market for $30 million after rumors to have purchased a sprawling home in Beverly Hills with his wife Jennifer Lopez.
He first snapped up the stunning property, complete with seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a gym, screening room and spa, for $19.2 million back in 2018. At the time, he bought the plush home in a bid to be near his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, with whom he remains amicable since their 2015 split, and the three children they share, daughters Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13 and ten-year-old son Samuel.
At the time, Realtor.com described the house as ‘an entertainer’s dream’, with the full listing for the home stating it has a spacious living room with fireplace, formal dining room with butler’s pantry, study with bar and more.While he and J-LO have yet to confirm that they have purchased a property together, moving trucks were recently spotted outside each of their respective homes.
Lopez and Affleck’s rumored new abode was most recently owned by Australian billionaire James Packer, who’s the former fiancé of Mariah Carey. Other previous residents include DeVito and his ex-wife, Matilda alum Rhea Perlman.
DeVito and Perlman sold the seven-bedroom home in 2015 for $28 million to developers Stuart and Stephanie Liner. The Liners then made numerous upgrades to the estate and listed it for $85 million. Packer then bought the property for around $60 million in 2018.It’s unclear what Lopez and Affleck paid for the house, and there’s a shroud of mystery surrounding the alleged deal, since the house was not even listed for sale when they reportedly bought it.
In fact, real estate experts told TMZ that it hadn’t even been shown off-market, with the exception, potentially, being to Lopez and Affleck. The house sprawls across 29,000-square-feet, which would allow ample space for the couple’s blended brood of five children.
The Jenny from the Block songstress shares 14-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony, while the Good Will Hunting star is the father to daughters Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13 and son Samuel, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
The massive estate is also said to have many luxury amenities and perks, including an at-home movie theater, a hair salon, a gym, an entertainment room, a wine cellar, a sprawling pool, and even multiple guest houses.
