[one_fourth]Size: 14,000 sq ft[/one_fourth]
[box] After the much-publicized separation of Jennifer Lopez and her hubby Marc Anthony, the final confirmation they’ll be no second thought reconciliation came when she bought a home 3,000 miles away from him, in the Hamptons.[/box]
The house was a steal, by high dollar standards, at just under $18 million. It initially went on the market for $19,500,000 two years ago. The sprawling 14,000 square foot home came from the mind of the brilliant designer/architect, John Laffey and constructed by Richard Perillo of East End Builders. It has sprawling 14,000 square feet of living space with seven bedrooms and nine and a half baths. Plus there’s an elevator for those who don’t wish to take the stairs.
The palatial estate sprawls over two acres on Long Island in the quaint town of Water Mill. It includes such amenities as limestone floors, Venetian plastered walls and even a tub completely carved out of a block of marble. The luxury property has a view of Mecox Bay and
one feature of the entry way is a spiral staircase going up a two-story rotunda.
The fully shingled house has hardwood floors throughout and plain white walls, but that doesn’t stop it from looking spectacular. It has a living room surrounded by glass doors and large expansive windows leaving only the framework between you and the outdoors. It also includes a large fireplace and a coffered ceiling in one of the premier living spaces. The coffered ceilings in this area are not disturbing (unlike the one featured in Jonah Hill’s kitchen); in fact, due to the expanse of the room, and geometric design, they fit perfectly.
The kitchen is all white, save the flooring and stainless steel stoves and hoods. (Yes, there are two of them.) All of the cupboards have a Shaker look but instead of the natural wood, they are white. However, you’ll find the gold standard of luxury in the master bathroom, where you have a hand carved marble bathtub, reminiscent of the old claw tubs, but without the claws of course.
Outside there’s a spa that offers a fireplace with a gigantic chimney. Atop the front of the chimney there’s a wide screen TV for the viewing pleasures of those in the spa. These are just a few of the amenities of Jennifer Lopez’s newly purchased home. It is impressive and breathtaking but…well, $18,000,000? That’s a big number for you and I, but probably chump change for our girl.
