Garner had a new mansion built in Brentwood

Garner had called the Pacific Palisades home for years, but after selling the longtime pad she shared with her ex-husband, she rented another house right down the street for her and children Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. The rental is more than 10,500 square feet with six bedrooms and seven-and-a-half bathrooms. The house has hardwood flooring throughout and an updated kitchen and breakfast nook. Out back, there’s a large yard with a pool and spa.

Garner decided to change zipcodes and bought a piece of land for $7.88 million a few years back in the Brentwood section of LA County. There, she had a mansion constructed from the ground up.

In the spot where Garner’s new house went up once stood a four-bedroom, three-bathroom abode spanning 3,245 square feet built in 1930.

The actor’s new place sits on .4 acres of land and is a Cape Cod-inspired design. Through social media, Garner has given fans a peek inside different parts of the house. One fan favorite is her reading room which boasts a personalized stained glass window.

Adam Levine bought the home where Garner lived with Affleck

Garner and Affleck purchased their family home between the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean in 2009. The main house is nearly 9,000 square feet, with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. There’s also a two-bedroom, three-bathroom subterranean guesthouse on the property.

In 2019, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and his wife Behati Prinsloo traded in their Beverly Hills pad for the “quieter” Pacific Palisades and snatched up the former couple’s mansion for $32 million.

“We wanted to live somewhere quieter, where you don’t hear the traffic and feel the stress. We were attracted to this place because it felt homey. You could tell that kids had lived here before,” Levine said, referring to Affleck and Garner’s children.

The rocker and Prinsloo did an extensive remodel and, in 2022, listed the property for $57 million.

Affleck is moving into Jennifer Lopez’s Bel-Air home

Speaking of Garner’s ex, he and Jennifer Lopez have been house-hunting for quite some time but haven’t found the place of their dreams yet, so they decided to move back to J.Lo’s Bel-Air mansion.

TMZ reported that the newlyweds are currently renting billionaire James Packer’s $60 million compound in Beverly Hills but will move into Lopez’s old place after a remodel there is complete.

The “Jenny From the Block” singer’s Bel-Air estate is situated on eight acres of land and has over 14,000 square feet of living space with seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. It boasts high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and exposed beams throughout.
