Since their engagement, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have quickly become Hollywood’s newest power couple. It looks as if the two have officially sealed the deal between themselves by purchasing an amazing Malibu mansion. This home is uniquely everything you’d expect and wouldn’t expect from a Hollywood couple. Today, we’re going to present a glimpse into J.Lo and A-Rods new home. The old phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” rings truer than ever when it comes to this house.
J.Lo’s Fixer-Upper By The Sea
One of the most stunning areas to own a home in is Malibu, California, so it shouldn’t shock you that a number of high-end celebrities live there. Amongst them are Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez who are the newest residents there. They bought the stunning home from the Entourage star Jeremy Piven.
The mansion is about 4,404 square foot and is said to have cost the couple $6.6 million dollars. The house is decked out with four bedrooms, three and quarter bathrooms and an amazing kitchen. Jennifer referred to the house as “a little fixer-upper next to the water”, but we think it’s so much more.
Location Is Everything
It’s all about having a good location when it comes to succeeding in the world of real estate. Good luck selling your home if it’s placed in a nowhere location. It can be the nicest house in the world but no one will want it. Make no mistake, J.Lo and A-Rod have picked out one amazing location for their new home.
You’ll find their three-story house on Old Malibu Road right before the ocean on Jane Seymour Beach. The structure was built back in 1949 and comes with a sea view from almost every single window. The decks also have an amazing ocean front view.
Cooking With A Sea View
If you go to the main floor of the Lopez home, you’ll find the impressive kitchen. She can thank Jeremy Piven for this feature as he completely redid the kitchen when he lived there and added all of the latest advancements in kitchen appliances. Jennifer’s kitchen comes with a lot of pluses.
Firstly, one must note that the kitchen connects to the living room which gives the area a very spacious effect. The large windows leave for a very beautiful view of the sea. Can you imagine how cool it would be to cook and look at the ocean at the same time?
Her Master Bedroom
A house just isn’t complete without an amazing master bedroom. Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have taken things to the next level with their amazing master bedroom. For starters, it appears to be bigger than the average house’s living room.
The bedroom has its own balcony with a beautiful ocean view as well as a couple of couches and a table. One should also take notice of their lush gray carpets. The already naturally bright room is already decked out with light colors. This is something that Jennifer Lopez has always been known to love.
One Heck Of A Dining Experience
Right next to Jennifer’s kitchen is the dining room. We can totally picture her and Alex nibbling on a piece of toast and looking at the current pushing the water in and out. The openness of the area is so welcoming that it seems that anyone can just walk up to her table and start eating.
The table may not look so large in the picture, but it can easily fit six people. On another high note, the entrance to the deck closest to the dining room is only a few feet away from the outdoor bar and sauna. This means that Jennifer can eat and go right to the sauna.
Three Floors Of Luxury
If your a lover of lots of horizontal space, the house really does lack, but it does plenty to make up for that. For instance, it is a three-story house. Keeping that in mind, the house actually has a lot more space than the average home. The first-floor homes the living room, dining room, kitchen and family room.
The second level holds the master bedroom as well as a number of guests bedrooms. There are also a couple of bathrooms on that floor. It is on the upper floors that you’ll also find a theater. Then there is the balcony which hold a lot of relaxing areas including a sauna and bar.
The Bathroom Of All Bathrooms
If you through Alex and Jennifer had an impressive master bedroom, your mind will be blown when you see their master bathroom. The only word that can properly describe this bathroom is lavish. you’ll find in there two sinks with pristine water pressure.
If you’re a fan of counter space then you won’t be disappointed by this bathroom. It is also a decked out with a shower and jacuzzi. With all that, the greatest aspect of this restroom has got to be the ocean view that lingers on outside the window. This is a very relaxing bathroom to start and end the day with.
The Sea Is Part Of The Livingroom
The beauty of the ocean kind of jumps out of itself and right into this beautiful living room. It can almost be considered part of the room’s decor as the green and blue brings quite the effect. The hardwood floor mixed with the bright colors of the house is absolutely perfect.
The room is also pretty spacious and it needs to be. If you got the idea that Jennifer Lopez and Alex were living there all alone then you were wrong. Jennifer has two kids from her last marriage and Alex has his two daughters. The house is actually pretty packed most of the time.
Her Entertainment Room
Perhaps the entire gem of the house sits on the lower floor. Jennifer Lopez has an amazing entertainment room. If you attend one of her parties, this is likely where all the action is going to happen. There are a ton of seating areas and a fully stocked bar.
Like in every other room, you have a nice window view looking out to the sea and a ton of bright colors. If Jennifer and her crew want to take the party to the next level, they can exit right through the door and find themselves of her private stretch of beach.
J.Lo’s Secret Garden
Even before you make it inside, you’ll know that you’re in for something amazing. You’ll enter the J.Lo residence via a very inviting garden entrance. This amazing courtyard smalls of a variety of flowers and separates the entrance from the streets.
Besides for the beach, this is the only other view that you will get at the J.Lo residence. This beautiful courtyard gives J.Lo all the privacy that she requires. It would be quite strange if she just lived so openly for everyone to see her. Next to the courtyard is a two car garage for their cars.
Old Malibu Road History
You can look back as far as the 1940s and 1950s and see that Old Malibu Road was always the home to an array of famous Hollywood stars. Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are partially helping in keeping that tradition alive, but the neighborhood has changed since those old glory years.
Today, Old Malibu Road is occupied by some celebrities but also a lot of normal working citizens. Don’t think that just anyone can afford to live there. Properties in the area range from $5.2 million to $26.5 million. You don’t have to be a star to live here, but you need to be rolling in millions.
Looking At The Ocean From Bed
While Jennifer Lopez has an amazing master bedroom, one can’t downplay how nice the guest bedrooms are. Each one is bright and has a view of the beach outside. While they are small when compared to the master bedroom, these bedrooms are still packing a lot of space.
The main difference between the bedrooms is perhaps the floor. While J.Lo’s master bedroom has those dark hardwood floors, the floors in the guest bedrooms are stained white wood floors. While the guest rooms look aimed towards adults now, Jennifer plans of decorating these rooms for the children.
One Sharp Bathroom
While it might be missing the jacuzzi and ocean view of the master bathroom, this bathroom is still quite beautiful when compared to the average home. The simple design offers plenty of table space and for a Hollywood actress and singer, we imagine that space is very important.
This bathroom is one of a few and given the number of people that actually live in the home er think that this is actually very important. None of the kids will need to wait to use the bathroom on those bustling school mornings. The more restrooms in a house, the better.
JL’o’s Walk-In Closet
Seems there is just one perk after another when ti comes to Jennifer’s master bedroom. This time we’re going to focus in on the amazing walk-in closet. The average closet can get filled to the brim with clothes that you hardly wear. Jennifer and Alex can pretty much fit every article of clothing they’ve ever owned in here with no problem.
Taking into consideration all the drawers, shelves and hanging space, there is probably enough room in that closet for every family members clothing collection. The size of the closet is immense and is said to be bigger than the average bedroom.
Warming Up In The Jacuzzi
Who the heck needs to go and swim in the sea when you have a jacuzzi on your balcony with a sea view? That fully brings together the best of both worlds. If we were living in at the lopez residence we would definitely move into that amazing jacuzzi and never leave.
We would have breakfast, lunch and dinner inside of that jacuzzi. We would watch every sunset from inside the comforts of that amazing jacuzzi. A house is a house, but once you have a jacuzzi put inside of it, that house becomes something on a whole new level.
Life on The Deck
Another amazing feature on the Lopez home is the fact that it has a wrap around deck on each floor. If you feel like you need to get away from the family, you can head to the top floor deck and no one will find you. A major upside is that a lot of the rooms connect to this deck.
Jennifer Lopez gives us plenty of reason to feel jealous with this amazing deck. We can totally picture her sitting there comfortably and watching the California sun vanish over the sea. It also helps that the weather in California is pretty perfect all year round.
Home Theater System
This house may not look like some of the mansions that you’ll feast your eyes on in Beverly Hills, but this is far from an average property. On the top floor of the house, you can find an amazing home theater. Jennifer Lopez is apparently a big fan of throwing movie nights.
Here we see them playing the 1972 classic The Godfather. This isn’t the only amazing space in the house. Jennifer Lopez also has a space specifically for yoga, a spa and a game room. This house has everything that someone could dream of.
Open Floor House
Jennifer Lopez doesn’t do anything small in life and her house is living up to that notion. Her house is different from most home because it is an open floor house. This means that each floor is kind of like a giant studio space. You won’t have to deal with many doors or hallways.
One of the other major upsides to living in an open floor house is that sun from the outside will flow throughout the entire house. The white colored walls only add to the brightness that the sunlight can offer. We could totally see why Jennifer Lopez would fall in love with this house.
The Street View
The street view provides the view of a house that doesn’t look like it’d be owned by one of the biggest celebrities of our time. It looks like the house can belong to a doctor or lawyer. The overgrowth of plants also does a good job of drawing attention away from celebrity status.
Little do people know, there is an absolute palace behind those walls. If they were to view the house from the back, they would see just how big and outstanding the house is. Imagine taking a stroll down the beach and catching Jennifer Lopez hanging out in her jacuzzi.
Jen’s Design Plan
Within a few months, we can all expect the Lopez residence to look very different. Right now the house is still living up to Jeremy Piven’s vision, so naturally, J.Lo is going to want to make the house her own. She has jokingly told A-Rod that she’d like to get Joanna Gaines from the HGTV program Fixer Upper to help with the house.
Alex saw past the joke and with their two-year anniversary he decided that he’d surprise Jen by contacting Joanna. Jen admitted to being totally star struck by Joanna and the two got their picture taken together. To Jen’s delight, Joanna agreed to help J.Lo with the new house.
A Look At The Spa
The new Lopez house is full of amazing features. One of the definite gems of the house is the built-in spa. You can only imagine how many girls would be in love to have their very own spa. As it turns out, this spa is actually leagues above your average spa.
This spa is completely made out of wood. Could you imagine a better place to go to sweat away from the day’s stress? We can’t imagine that Jennifer is going to want to make much change to this gem.
The Third Bedroom
While this room is the smallest bedroom in the house, it looks like it makes up for it with the number of charms that come with it. Looks like a beautiful hotel room. Just like every other room in the house, the walls are painted white and furniture matches perfectly.
Despite being the smallest room in her mansion, it is still much better looking than an average house’s master bedroom. This room can still fit two bedside tables, a chair and a big nightstand. We definitely wouldn’t complain if our room looked as nice as this.
When it comes to anything life, a first impression usually determines whats between what we consider a gem and flop. This means that the entryway of a house means everything. We think that Jennifer Lopez has chosen an entryway that will make an amazing first impression for her guests.
Their entryway is actually an impressive size and has its fair share of furniture. The most interesting aspect of this house is no doubt that rug. It certainly does have a way of grabbing someone’s attention. We wonder how the entryway will look once they are done decorating it.
Let’s Not Forget The Beach
You are truly living in the lap of luxury when you can wake up every morning and take a nice long walk on the beach. Malibu is known for having water that is blue and full. We are definitely jealous of Jennifer Lopez. She gets to wake up and take in a world of beauty every day.
This is the kind of life that Hollywood stardom can buy a person. Jennifer Lopez has been working for years upon years in movies and on albums. We think that she has definitely earned a quieter life on the beach of Malibu. Their children are pretty lucky to be growing up in such an area.
Some Genius Design
It’s not the space that makes this home or all the cool features. At the end of the day, what truly makes a house amazing is an amazing design and this house fits the bill. The house is designed to make living in it a luxury. There are no odd corners or cramped areas that make no logical sense.
Everything in the new Lopez residence just fits together so perfectly. For instance, the kitchen has built-in wine shelves. Usually, someone would just stick the bottle in the fridge but the designers knew that they’d need a special area just for the wine.
