It has undergone a renovation in the French Country style, according to the listing, and features Provençal touches like a stone facade and wood accents.

The estate sits on more than 7 acres, a massive property for Los Angeles’s Bel Air neighborhood. 

If it sells for the $42.5 million asking price, it will be one of the pricier transactions in Bel Air in recent years. Data from Zillow shows that there have been six homes in the neighborhood that sold for at least $40 million since 2020. 

A nearby 105,000-square-foot megamansion known as The One sold at auction for $141 million, including fees and commission, in 2022.

Lopez’s estate includes a guest house, a gym, a large kitchen with a built-in breakfast bar, and a 30-seat movie theater, according to the listing agent, Brett Lawyer of Carolwood Estates.Jennifer Lopez's kitchen includes a built-in breakfast bar, vaulted ceilings, and a stone facade

Lopez has earned a reputation as a savvy real estate investor since her star-making turn on the silver screen playing Selena Quintanilla in the singer’s 1997 biopic, Selena.

In 2000, Lopez bought her first luxury property, a 7-bedroom home in a community called The Summit that overlooks Beverly Hills and Studio City. 

Lopez put the property on the market after owning it for just four years and earned about $8 million in profit from the sale, according to Love Property.
