Jennifer Lopez has sold her Bel Air mansion, designed by architect Samuel Marx, for just under $34 million.
The sale of this home comes months after the singer purchased a $61 million property in the nearby Wallingford Estates alongside her husband, Ben Affleck. He also sold his Pacific Palisades home for $28.5 million in 2022, reports suggest. Jennifer originally purchased this French country-style home for $28 million in 2016 from the actress Sela Ward and her husband, entrepreneur Howard Sherman.
Situated only moments away from the Hotel Bel-Air, the estate comprises eight verdant acres, offering a quintessential European escape in the center of Los Angeles. Its stone façade offers a hint of the rustic architectural assets that hide behind its front door, but of course, they come with a contemporary twist.
The main level epitomizes this blend of modern-traditional elements – exhibiting high wooden ceilings, a stone fireplace, steel windows, and doors opening to stone terraces. The main living room uses curved, neutral furnishings to ensure the rustic base is versatile, soothing, and able to top contemporary design trends.
A white kitchen leads from the main living and dining area – complete with tall cabinets, decorative open shelving, and a built-in breakfast area. The kitchen leads to another family room with a bar that opens to a terrace with a three-sided infinity-edge pool.
The primary suite wing, located upstairs, has a private library, fireplace, his & her dressing rooms, and sun-filled bathrooms opening to the landscaped terraces and tranquil cascading stream. The upstairs floor also has a home office, a massage room, and a guest bedroom.
Outside, the expansive grounds house another guest house, a gym, and a 100-seat amphitheater. The space is perfect for entertaining, thanks to its pavilion with an outdoor kitchen, a private lake with a sandy beach, and a shower.
The grounds also include a large motor court, additional parking, and a sprawling lawn, enveloped by mature trees and plants for unrivaled privacy.
