It was the New York daily News that first broke news about the irresistible Jennifer Lopez purchasing a massive mansion in the Hamptons. The superstar who constantly shifts between being single or otherwise has coupled with real estate holdings of unprecedented proportions. Designed by the architect John Laffey, the mansion was once listed for $19,500,000 and as the rumor mill goes, Jennifer Lopez has purchased it at the whooping price after the manor remained in the market for 743 days without an owner.
This mansion has been termed as a Gambrel-roofed 'cottage'! It is located in new Bridgehampton, in the swish and plush Water Mill area, New York.
The Hamptons home of Jennifer Lopez is a beach home. The carpet area of 14,000 square feet is populated with 7 bedrooms and about 10 bathrooms which are located throughout the home and the guestrooms. However, the mansion is a true home and not a 'celebrity' exhibition as many might imagine. With homely colors all around and comfortably made interior decorations, the place is a privacy paradise.
The home is two storeyed and thus has an elevator built in for easy movement. Lush green lawns stretch out luxuriantly in front of the home and beyond them, one has a beautiful view of the beach. The limestone flooring is a luxury feature that is quite unique to this home and the bath tubs are made of marble. There are Venetian plaster walls everywhere and a total of seven fireplaces - two outside and five on the inside.
Bridgehampton is located in the Town of Southampton. It is a plush locality known for its horse show, the Hampton Classic. Horse racing is another pastime of this rich neighborhood. The place is also home to Warren Anderson, a former chairman of Union Carbide Incorporated.
