Affleck and Lopez are splashing out more than $50 million on a 10-bedroom estate.
The couple, who rekindled their romance last year, has reportedly agreed to buy a 20,000 sq ft abode in Los Angeles’ Bel Air region, which has enough space for the 49-year-old actor’s three children and the ‘On the Floor’ hitmaker’s twins because the couple wants them all to live there together.
The property, which was listed for $65 million by billionaire Todd Lemkin, features 17 bathrooms, numerous kitchens, a theatre, gym, his and hers baths, and a pool, as well as a spectacular city view in a very quiet setting surrounded by trees.
According to TMZ, Ben – who share Violet, 16, Serafina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner – and Jennifer have agreed on a deal in the “mid-$50 million range,” but there are still restrictions that must be met before the transaction can go through.
The revelation of the new family home follows reports that the ‘Tender Bar’ singer and his partner, who has 14-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony, are looking for a London base this summer.
A source said: “There is a very trusted team looking for the perfect home for Ben and J-Lo for the summer.
“It will probably be the usual mansion in a leafy area on the outskirts of London. American stars love areas such as Richmond which, as well as being lovely, is close to Heathrow Airport, but also near enough to some of the big studios such as Leavesden and Shepperton.”
As per Radaronline, Ben has been linked to a role in the upcoming ‘Barbie’ movie, which is being shot at Warner Bros’ Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire, and this could be one of the factors behind the potential switch.
Jennifer, however, recently described her relationship with Ben as a “happy, healthy relationship,” and believes they are in a better place now than they were when they first dated from 2002 to 2004.
She said: “We’re older now, we’re smarter, we have more experience, we’re at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things.
“I think we are strong enough now to know what’s real and what’s not, whereas when we were younger maybe some of those outside voices were a little bit tougher for us to reconcile and survive.”
