For those that are keeping track, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have gone in and out of and in and out of and in and out of escrow on several mansions over the past two years of their never-ending hunt for the perfect enormous place to stay as far away from each other as possible in to separately recharge their “public façade of everlasting love” batteries. But finally, Ben can turn in his room key for whatever Motel 6 he’s been retreating to after his grueling fake shifts at Dunkin’ because the two have finally found a home that must’ve quelled their fighting! And while we all probably have our skeptical faces on (like Jen’s son Max above) about this one sticking, TMZ says they paid almost $61 million cash-in-full for the home and have already started moving in their stuff.
Bennifer 2.0 just finalized the highly discounted sale of the massive Beverly Hills compound located in the exclusive Wallingford Estates within the last couple of days.
The house boasts a cinema, wine room, whiskey lounge, spa with a hair and nail salon, and sauna and massage room. And get this, there’s also a separate, 5,000-square-foot sports facility, which includes an indoor pickleball court, boxing ring and sports lounge. On top of that, there’s a 2-bedroom guard house. In all, there are 12 bedrooms, 24 bathrooms and 15 fireplaces!
It sits on a 5-acre promontory and the security is unmatched … the estate is double-gated…It’s considered the crown jewel of Wallingford, and that’s saying something.
Ben and Jen paid $60,850,000 … and they paid in cash. The whole deal took 1 week, start to finish…It sounds like a lot of loot, but it turns out they got an incredible deal. The property was listed in 2018 for $135,000,000 and relisted this year for $75M.
There are lots of pics on the listing, but here’s a peek at what $61 million buys you:
And even though their pull-out game had been fast and loose with other homes, there’s no turning back now since they’ve already started moving in, and a smattering of their boring greige furniture was photographed in the driveway yesterday:
Ben has to be relieved to have his very own whiskey lounge now so he can drink his non-alcoholic beer of choice in peace without JLo swooping in to sample it for alcohol (while she clutches a glass of her newly-released alcoholic beverage, DeLola, in her other hand); because once he pours himself something, it’s going to take her an hour or two to traverse the 38,000 sq. ft. while navigating all of the identically neutral rooms to get to his exhausted and defeated-looking ass!
