J. Lo Just Listed This Bel Air Estate with a Beautiful Blend of Styles for $42.5M

Combining lives takes careful thought for any newlywed couple. Add in mansions, movie and tour schedules, children, and staggering net worths and the process must be on another level entirely. A-listers Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck just tied the knot last summer in an epic wedding no one expected a few years ago. Now in a new era as the Afflecks, J. Lo is looking to shed this exquisite Bel Air haven.

Though the eight-acre property has overflowing beauty, the power couple clearly isn’t planning to keep it in the mix as they move forward. Ever the savvy businesswoman, J. Lo has priced the estate at $42.5 million after purchasing it for $28 million from actress Sela Ward and entrepreneur Howard Sherman in 2016, according to Mansion Global.

Originally designed by architect Samuel Marx, the residence has been revamped since then to become a multi-structure French country-style home. On closer inspection, though, it displays a clever blend of styles. While stone and wood elements infuse a feeling of living in French wine country, elements like the clean steel windows and doors add a splash of modern, industrial flair. Meanwhile, the 100-seat outdoor amphitheater has a decidedly boho look with its wild greenery and colorful pillows.

Within the approximately 14,000 square feet of interiors, everything feels sophisticated and warm—an appropriate reflection of the seller’s aura. While high ceilings and striking light fixtures create a grand atmosphere, it still feels completely livable and family oriented.

True to the L.A. lifestyle, all paths lead to the outdoors. In the primary suite wing, you can hop out of the shower and head straight out to unwind on the private landscaped patio or stroll to the vegetable garden. The amenity-rich terraces—designed with lounging areas, a pool, and a firepit—can be accessed from all the living spaces. But, there’s more to explore. Further into the grounds, you’ll discover a guest house/studio/gym, an entertainment pavilion with a full kitchen, a private lake with a beach and outdoor shower, and more.

While most personal traces of J. Lo and her family have been removed from view in the listing photos, you can find a sweet display in the lower level’s home theater. A selection of movie posters of both her and her husband’s films adorn the walls.
