ON THE MOVE
Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez After months of viewing every mansion for sale in Los Angeles, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have moved into their new $60+ million home in Bel Air…and it was not even on the market. Formerly owned by Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, the 29,000-square-foot estate sits on about 1.3 acres. The four structures include a main house with seven bedrooms, several guest houses, eight-car garage, a home theater, swimming pool and a hair salon. The seller is James Packer, the former fiancé of Mariah Carey.
Speaking of Mariah Carey, she recently paid $5.65 million for a stately 13,000-square-foot home in Atlanta’s Sandy Springs suburb. The Southern Colonial country house encompasses nine bedrooms and 13 bathrooms along with a movie theater, swimming pool, pool house, children’s playground, guest apartment and a mirrored gym. The 4.2-acre grounds include dense woodlands, a tennis court and a pond. The property was formerly rented by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson while shooting a movie nearby.
Shaquille O’Neal has purchased a modest 5,269-square- foot home in Carrolton, Texas, about 25 miles north of downtown Dallas. Listed at $1.225 million, the house is about one-sixth the size of the Florida mansion he sold last year. It features five bedrooms with ensuite baths as well as two powder rooms, a paneled library and a small home theater. Built in 2005 on a nearly 10,000-square- foot lot, the gated property also offers a lagoon-style pool with stone fountain, beach entry and spill-over spa.
