The mansion was sold by J. Lo and Ben Affleck for $30 million
A new mansion that was nearly purchased by Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez in the movie Pacific Palisades is back on the market after its asking price dropped to $29.9 million, a discount of $4.6 million.
The 15,100-square-foot home was relisted after the couple moved out of escrow for the one-acre property at 14330 West Sunset Boulevard, according to Robb Report.
J Lo and her husband, Ben Affleck, abandoned the deal to purchase the $34.5 million mansion in March, choosing instead a $64 million property on the same street, which also fell out of escrow.
In June, the blended family of five settled into a 38,000-square-foot furnished estate in Beverly Crest for $60.85 million.
Before the final deal, the duo appeared poised to purchase a “Hamptons-esque” home on Sunset Boulevard, after a $55 million property they tried to buy in Bel-Air fell through.
Now the seven-bedroom, 13-bathroom Pacific Palisades home, designed by Ken Ungar, is available again.
The listing is held by brokers Sam Palmer and Blair Chang of the agency, along with Gary Glass of AKG Christie’s International Real Estate.
Built to specifications last year by a group of undisclosed developers, the 15,100-square-foot white house with sweeping eaves and numerous gables sits on an acre behind high walls and hedges, surrounded by native sycamore trees.
The pea and gravel car park is accessed through a brick gate and is accompanied by a six-car garage.
Inside the all-white mansion, hardwood floors dominate the living and dining rooms, which are lit by expansive windows and glass doors. The home library opens onto a covered patio.
The two-storey property has four kitchens, including a gourmet kitchen, a service kitchen, an outdoor kitchen and a fourth kitchen in a separate guest house, which contains a living room, dining room and bedroom suite.
The main house has six bedrooms, including a master suite with a sitting room, double bathrooms, double closets, and a balcony overlooking the backyard. It also contains a cinema, gym, wine cellar and ‘spa’. Outside, there is a dark-bottomed swimming pool surrounded by a large courtyard and deck.
Last month, Lopez sold her resort-like Bel-Air resort for $34 million, $8.5 million less than the asking price.
The buyers were Taiwanese businessman Walter Wang, CEO of Los Angeles-based JM Eagle, the world’s largest manufacturer of plastic pipes and pipes, and his wife Shirley, CEO of Plastpro, a leading manufacturer of fiberglass doors, which owns Actually two properties just a few doors down. Far, according to Rob.
Affleck also left his bachelor pad Pacific Palisades in October last year for $28.5 million.
Between them, the couple owns an 87-acre estate in Georgia now listed for $8.9 million, as well as a penthouse in New York, a mansion in the Hamptons, and a small country house in Encino.
