Now that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have split, she’s making a fresh start, and her new shingle-style house in the Hamptons looks like the perfect place for it. The nearly $18 million Mecox Bay estate where Lopez will live with cutie-pie twins Max and Emme (shown here in an ad they shot for Gucci) sits on 2 acres in the exclusive Water Mill area with beautiful bay and ocean views.
10/1/11 Update: A reader tells me this is all a “publicity stunt” for Jennifer Lopez and she hasn’t really bought the house. Whether the sites reporting it got the info wrong or not, it’s a fun one to look at. We’ll see if they start retracting the story in days to come, I guess!
It looks a little stark and cold since it’s empty, but I imagine it’ll be gorgeous once it’s furnished and decorated. I hope she’ll let a magazine photograph it like Veranda did with her place in California. This is my kind of house. I love all the windows and the woodwork. Wouldn’t mind the 7 fireplaces, either.
The house has 7 bedrooms and 9.5 baths. The master is so big I thought it was a living room at first:
There’s a fireplace and TV for people using the spa outside:
The side of the house:
