Jennifer Lopez has listed her $42.5 million French-style mansion (her home of six -years) following her marriage to actor Ben Affleck seven months ago.
The actress and singer, who is best known for her roles in Marry Me, Hustlers, and The Boy Next Door, reportedly paid $28 million for the prestigious property (that is one of the world's best homes) in 2016. She is now asking $42.5 million for – what the listing labels – as a 'rare and extraordinary estate' (according to the Wall Street Journal, which broke the news).
Ben Affleck similarly listed his Pacific Palisades mansion for $30 million almost immediately following the wedding. It sold in September 2022, per local property records. The Batman vs Superman actor has another property in Georgia that played host to the couple's much-anticipated wedding ceremony.

The roughly 14,000-square-foot home was originally designed by modernist architect Samuel Marx who was influenced by international style. However, it has since received a contemporary makeover – reworked into a French Country-inspired multi-structure that uses an assortment of stone and woods that accentuate its organic surroundings.
Beyond the hardwood door, the interiors continue to pay homage to the late architect – boasting a timeless stone fireplace, high ceilings, and glass doors that open to the terraces (the listing notes).
In terms of design, much of the estate boasts a primarily neutral color palette – seen through the cream and gray living room and chef's kitchen drenched in SoCal sunlight. There are, however, some expectations of the rule. The dining room, for example, is an unexpected source of gold paint inspiration – seen through the metallic wall that Jennifer pairs with artwork and a statement chandelier.
Similarly, the home features a dark purple theater, showcasing a selection of posters for films in which she and Ben Affleck have starred throughout their careers.
Alongside the theater, the house boasts a wet bar, game room, and palm-tree-filled outdoor arena with space for ample space performing and entertaining. The terrace also boasts views across the leafy backyard and a three-sided infinity-edge pool enclosed by the Santa Monica Mountains.
Where does Jennifer Lopez mainly live?
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck had planned to live in this Bel Air mansion following their marriage; however, they are currently renting in Beverly Hills while hunting for their long-time home (according to TMZ). The pair also own the impressive estate on Hampton Island, Georgia, a New York City penthouse, a mansion in the Hamptons, and an intimate cottage in Encino, Los Angeles.
