There is no denying that Jennifer Lopez is a powerhouse business entrepreneur and entertainer. If one turns their back for five minutes, she will have used that five minutes to create another business, make another album, star in another film, go on another tour, produce a television sitcom and multitask all of these while being a judge on “American Idol.” Her past record sales exceed 60 million, and her films number around 35 and growing, at last count grossing upwards of $2 billion. Her repertoire also includes fashion design, writing, media production and a perfume line. J-Lo is the most extreme of all celebrity multitaskers, all this while being a single mom of 45 with seven-year-old twins. Her latest achievement is her Las Vegas residency show at Planet Hollywood’s Axis theater opening in January with 20 scheduled performances.
Currently with a recently purchased estate in the Hamptons and a New York City penthouse, Lopez is selling the home she purchased in Los Angeles while married to former husband, Marc Anthony. They bought the 17,129-square-foot estate in the exclusive, guard-gated Hidden Hills neighborhood for $8.2 million in 2010. The enclave abounds with other celebrity residents such as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Jessica Simpson and LeAnn Rimes.
Sited on over three acres, the home was designed for celebrity status and entertainment. The master suite encompasses the whole second floor south wing and consists of a sitting room with fireplace, a private stone terrace and two walk-in closets, one measuring 350 square feet. The main house wing contains the formal rooms, a large eat-in kitchen with marble counter tops and butler’s pantry. The entertainment pavilion has all manner of work and play amenities such as a massive saloon/lounge, a full bar, fireplace with television above and a special area for poker players. The pavilion also includes a 20-seat movie theater, a professional-grade recording studio with sound-proof booth, a dance studio/gym with adjoining kitchenette and laundry room, a self-sufficient au pair suite, a fitting/dressing room that serves as an additional wardrobe, and a massage salon. All open to the pool, spa and outdoor kitchen terrace via banks of French doors. There are nine bedrooms and thirteen baths.
Jennifer Lopez’ Los Angeles Hidden Hills estate of 17,129 square feet on three acres is now offered for sale at $17 million. The listing agents are Matthew Gaskill and Alisa Peterson of Sotheby’s International Realty in Los Angeles, California.
