After months of searching, celebrity couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have found themselves a new marital home.
The power couple is reportedly now under contract to buy a multimillion-dollar mansion in a star-studded corner of Los Angeles: a sprawling Pacific Palisades estate last listed for $34.5m (AU$49.4m), according to TMZ.

The 53-year-old hit and the two-time Academy Award-winner, 50, were photographed this weekend checking out the sprawling 1,400 sqm compound with their kids — Affleck’s daughter Seraphina and Lopez’s twins, Emme and Maximilian, who are all 14-years old.
The property — which was held by Compass and is now listed as being under contract — is set on a full, Sycamore tree-surrounded acre of land.
It has seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, a huge home theatre, a six-car garage and a detached guesthouse.
Outside, there’s is a pool, a hot tub and an outdoor kitchen.
Described as having a “Hamptons-esque” design, the dwelling also has a motor court, an arched brick porte-cochere, six fireplaces, a “servants quarters,” a wine cellar and a gym.
Before settling on this palatial abode, the couple — who tied the knot for a second time in July 2022 — considered a number of other area properties, many with significantly higher price points.

Not long after flaking on a $55m Bel-Air property last year, the pair were spotted checking out the former manor of the late TV mogul Aaron Spelling, which was then priced at $165m.
As the lovebirds prepare to close on their new abode, Lopez, long known as a savvy property investor, is working on offloading a former one.
Earlier this month, the Bronx native listed her French-style, nine-bedroom Bel-Air property of six years for $42.5m.
The entertainer purchased the property in 2016, for $28m — meaning she stands to make quite a tidy profit off it should it get its asking price.
