By now, all the children surely know that ack-tor Ben Affleck and ack-tress Jennifer Garner recently spent the big bucks buying the Pacific Palisades estate of super-producer Brian Grazer and his ex-wifey, screenwriter Gigi Levangie Grazer. To be more exact, records and reports show the Jenufleck's paid $17,550,000 for the sprawling, private and worked over Cliff May ranch house.
But what about their former love nest Brentwood? Soon after word leaked out that the couple settled on the Grazer spread, it was whispered to Your Mama by Donna Tellaitall (and then transmitted to the children) that the baby-making couple were quietly shopping their former digs on N. Tigertail Road around with an optimistic asking price of 8.5 million clams. Miz Tellaitall also whispered to Your Mama that she heard a deal was being made at a much lower price in the 6.8 million dollar range.
As it turns out, the actual sales price was even lower than Miz Tellaitall thought. According to property records, the new owners of the Jenufleck's old house–a money man and his wife–paid $6,250,000 for the 4 bedroom and 4 bathroom residence that records show measures 3,843 square feet.
Given that Missus Affleck purchased the property for $5,500,000 in June of 2004 when she was still Miss Garner, not much (if any) profit was realized on the sale of the hacienda style house, an economic situation about which we imagine there are only crocodile tears.
