Jennifer Garner isn't a starter wife, but she's now the mistress of a very large family home.
The actress and hubby Ben Affleck have snatched über-producer Brian Grazer's Pacific Palisades mansion off the market for the reported bargain price of...less than $20 million, E! News has learned.
The nine-bedroom, 14-bathroom house sitting on an acre of land in the tony Southern California community was originally listed for $27 million, and at some point the asking price was lowered to $24 million.
According to a source, the hard-bargain-driving Affleck family inquired about buying the existing furniture as well as the walls around it, but the insider couldn't confirm that the additional transaction had taken place.
Regardless, Affleck and Garner's princessian daughters, 3-year-old Violet and 4-month-old Seraphina Rose, should have plenty of space to roam. Their new playground boasts a gym and a pool, plus a billiards room, crafts room, screening room and two-bedroom guest suite.
The girls' A-list parents recently unloaded their Brentwood home, which they purchased from Cindy Crawford, for just over $6 million.
Grazer and Ron Howard's Imagine Entertainment has been responsible for a slew of big-deal projects over the years, including films like Oscar winner A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13 and The Da Vinci Code and TV shows such as 24 and Friday Night Lights.
Grazer is currently in the process of divorcing third wife Gigi Levangie Grazer, author of The Starter Wife, which later turned into the hit miniseries and short-lived TV series starring Debra Messing.
