How’s Construction Coming Along at Jennifer Garner’s New L.A Home?

Catapulted headfirst into the limelight back in 2001, Jennifer Garner is anything but ready to surrender her spot on the list of Hollywood’s top actresses. The versatile actress rose in ranks relatively quickly, bagging roles next to the likes of Ashton Kutcher and ex-husband Ben Affleck, successfully earning her spot as a fan favorite in the process.

What’s Up in Garner’s Life?

Before 2018 came to a finish, Jennifer made sure to tie some loose knots. Having finalized the divorce with actor Ben Affleck and bidding adieu to their Pacific Palisades mansion, the actress went sniffing around for a new home- and it wasn’t long before she found one.

Located in the Brentwood Park neighborhood in LA, the property consisted of four bedrooms and three bathrooms and sat on roughly 0.4 acres. Not only was the property not listed before its acquisition by Garner, but it also hasn’t been offered on the open market for decades. Talk about a stroke of luck!
The superstar doled out $7.9 million for the property.

Starting From Scratch

Originally, the property was built in the 1930s. While fans had expected to see bits and pieces of renovation before Garner moved in, the actress decided to go in a totally different direction. She had the 3,245-square-foot home knocked down from the original structure and planned to start afresh to that measure.

Two years down the line, Garner still awaits the day her Cape-Cod style mansion will be completed. You know what they say, all good things come to those who wait.

The Latest Spotting

According to the New York Post, the actress, entrepreneur, and producer was seen touring the construction site at the end of January. From what pictures reveal, she seems to be walking through the site as construction workers update her on its progress.

From mid-2020 till now, the construction speed has seemingly picked up. Back then, only a wooden framework stood for the first floor of the mansion. By January, most of the walls, doors, windows, and roof appear to have been installed. It’s only a matter of months now till completion, from what it seems.

So, Where Has Garner Been Staying?

Garner and her three little ones have been staying at a nearby Pacific Palisades mansion for the time being. Moving from this 10,568-square-feet mansion encompassing 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, adjusting to the relatively smaller-sized mansion in the making might be difficult for the family. Only time will tell if Garner and co. decide to keep the property once complete or move on to greener- or rather, more luxurious- pastures.
