SELLER: Jennifer Lopez
LOCATION: Hidden Hills, CA
SIZE: 17,129 square feet, 9 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: After more than two years on and off the market, Jennifer Lopez has finally dumped her massive mansion in the guard-gated Hidden Hills community for $10 million. The Bronx-born bi-coastal international superstar purchased the three-plus-acre estate in the early days of 2010, when still married to Marc Anthony, for $8.2 million so she still came out ahead even though the final sale price was $2.5 million under the property’s last asking price of $12.5 million and a whopping $7.5 million below the optimistically aggressive $17.5 million price the casually glamorous property was saddled with when it first popped up on the open market in January 2015.
The sprawling mansion comprises two huge structures, a spacious main house and an equally sized entertainment pavilion linked by an interior bridge that spans a porte cochere, that together measure 17,129-square-feet with a total of 9 bedrooms and 11 full and 2 half bathrooms. In addition to glitzy formal living and dining rooms, a paneled study and a capacious kitchen that’s open to huge family room with bar area, the main residence has eight bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms including a celebrity-style master suite replete with sitting area with fireplace, private terrace, onyx-floored bathroom and two walk-in closets. A gigantic, two-story entertainment wing comprises a one-bedroom and one-bathroom staff apartment with full kitchen, a wood-paneled and coffer ceiled 1,000-square-foot lounge and poker nook, a 20-seat theater, a combination gym-and-dance studio, a professional recording studio, and an extensive dressing room/glam factory with four walk-in closets, massage room, and hair and makeup stations.
The tireless entertainer and entrepreneur — she sings, she dances, she acts, she produces for film and television and she lucratively hawks a slew of branded products that include clothing and perfume — swapped her Hidden Hills estate for and even more lavish 8-plus acre estate in Bel Air she scooped up last year for $28 million from actress Sela Ward and she additionally maintains a 6,540-square-foot duplex penthouse in a boutique building Near Madison Square Park bought in October 2014 for $20,161,350 — Chelsea Clinton owns one of the lower floor units — as well as a two-parcel spread of about two acres in the hoitiest of the toity Hamptons communities of East Hampton that she picked up in two separate but contiguous 2013 transactions for a total of $9.995 million.
