Just over two years ago, Adam Levine paid the now divorced couple, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, $ 32 million for a large Los Angeles estate. Shortly after – last summer, to be exact – the Grammy-winning musician told Architectural Digest during a video tour of the house that he never leaves and the house is not for sale … “so don’t even think about it to this, for at least a year! ”
But that was it then! Now, TMZ reports that Levine and his supermodel wife, Behati Prinsloo, have suddenly changed their minds and are indeed throwing the property back on the market, demanding a substantial sum of more than $ 57.5 million. Kurt Rappaport from Westside Estate Agency is currently buying the site only for “pre-qualified buyers”, so lookie-loos are out of luck.
Although the list price is $ 25 million more than Levine and Prinsloo paid for the firm-style spread, the couple undertook extensive interior remodeling in collaboration with the mother-son duo Clements Design during their tenure. They also hired the famous landscape architect Mark Rios to arrange the land.
Originally built and designed by renowned architect Cliff May in the late 1930s, the site has undergone numerous renovations and additions over the years. Previous owners included Gregory Peck and producer Brian Grazer, who sold the property to Affleck and Garner for $ 17.5 million in 2009.
If history prevails, Levine and Prinsloo will probably feel like bandits. They are no strangers when it comes to taking advantage of their real estate investment, the couple turned over a century-old property in Montecito to an as yet unidentified buyer last summer in an off-market transaction for $ 28.5 million – or $ 5.8 million more than them. he had just paid three months earlier. And in 2019, just one year after buying the location for less than $ 34 million, the couple sold their elegant 1930s Beverly Hills estate to Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi for $ 42.5 million. ; for their part, DeGeneres and de Rossi quickly overthrew the same $ 45 million home to prominent venture capitalist Mood Rowghani and his wife Tara Dhingra.
Huddled safely behind a long alley in the coveted Riviera Pacific Palisades neighborhood, the property includes three structures on more than 3 acres of land. Among them: the main house and a four-bedroom guest house with a full kitchen and living / dining areas, plus a separate yoga / office and gym – for a total of 10 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms in about 16,000 square meters of living space.
