Yahoo! Homes can confirm the latest JLo rumor floating around: Celebrity force of nature Jennifer Lopez has indeed just purchased this lovely home in the Hamptons, just off Mecox Bay in Water Mill, N.Y.
Listed at $9,995,000 by Susan Breitenbach of the Corcoran Group, the home is by no means the most expensive in Water Mill; in fact, a source told the New York Post (which first broke the story) that the price was "a steal." She reportedly visited the home several times with her boyfriend, Casper Smart, and her 5-year-old twins, Emme and Max. (Maybe she and her boyfriend were out celebrating their new house the other day when Smart was caught "out-diva-ing" JLo in New York?)
Along with the requisite pool and pool house, the 3-acre estate has a theater, a sauna and steam room, and "room for guest house and tennis court, adding approximately $4 to $5 million in extra value," according to the listing. The property has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms in 8,500 square feet.
Lopez had been looking in the area for years, and had even been reported to have purchased in Water Mill in 2011, though the Post says that home actually sold to a different buyer.
According to Zillow, she owns a huge compound in the Los Angeles area's Hidden Hills that she bought with then-husband Marc Anthony in 2010, plus two homes in Glen Head, N.Y. And speaking of her ex: Marc Anthony just bought a house in the Valley, in L.A.'s Encino area.
We think this house is perfectly lovely, though maybe a little bland compared with what we might have expected for Lopez. Her former mansion in Miami was certainly showier. (Click here to see pictures of that home.)
