Ben Affleck has put his Pacific Palisades bachelor home on the market since his marriage to his new wife Jennifer Lopez as reported by The Dirt.com.
Affleck purchased the property after his 2018 divorce from ex-wife Jennifer Garner for $19 million and has now put the mansion up for sale for $29.999 million or $10 million more than his original purchase price.
The home has seven bedrooms and nine baths with 13,453 square feet of living space and was brand new when Affleck bought the property. It was built in the East Coast Traditional style and sits behind gates near the Palisades Riviera Country Club on just over a half an acre of land at 1172 Napoli Drive.
This move is one brought on by the marriage and Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s new blended family. According to The Dirt.com, the couple is now looking at $50 million mansion to house their four children with their previous spouses even though they already own a number of properties in their real estate portfolios. Currently, according to The Dirt.com, the couple and their children are staying in the rental property owned by James Packer in Beverly Hills until a current remodel of Lopez’s Bel Air mansion is completed.
