They fell out of love and are now in trust, but the newly reunited couple are still hot on the hunt for a new home.
Shortly after shelling out on a $55 million Bel-Air mansion, newly engaged lovers Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were spotted touring the former home of the late television mogul Aaron Spelling in suburban Los Angeles.
On Tuesday, Affleck, 49, and Lopez, 52, shared a look at the disgustingly lavish town of a 14-bedroom home in the Holmby Hills area. The Daily Mail reported. Their tour of the sprawling estate – originally known as Spelling Manor and now apparently known simply as the Manor – came just days after the lovebirds committed to each other then immediately fold to an over 20,000 square meter lot They supposedly already did closed a deal Last month.
While their now-abandoned love nest was certainly decadent, the Manor really is beyond opulent. Built in 1990 by Spelling for him and his wife Candy, the 56,000 square foot residence is spread over 4.6 acres and features 27 bathrooms, 100 garage spaces, a movie theater and a tennis court. There are built-in aquariums, 400-year-old Moorish columns, an imperial staircase, pool, jacuzzi and even a hair salon.
Past residents include Kylie Jenner and British heiress Petra Ecclestone, who bought the property from the Spellings in 2011 for $85 million before reportedly doing about $20 million in renovations.
By comparison, the Bel-Air estate (aka The Bellagio Estate) had just 17 bathrooms, 10 bedrooms, a less lavish-looking home theater, and 1.1 acres.
Bennifer’s Tuesday tour of Spelling Manor followed a Sunday home tour of three other properties, the Daily Mail reported. Accompanying the weekend expedition were the youngest children of Affleck and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner – 13-year-old Seraphina and 10-year-old Samuel. Neither Lopez’s 14-year-old twins with ex-husband Marc Anthony nor Affleck’s 16-year-old daughter Violet appeared to be present.
