Marc Anthony Lists Long Island Compound

SELLER: Marc Anthony
LOCATION: Glen Head (Brookville), NY
PRICE: $12,000,000
SIZE: 10,084 square feet, 10 bedrooms, 8 full and five half bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Perhaps some of y’all heard word long ago but Your Mama’s none-the-less decided to weigh in late rather than never on the multi-residence estate in the decidedly uppity and historically blue-blooded village of Brookville of Long Island’s affluent Gold Coast that pencil slender and swivel-hipped salsa singer/producer/etc. Marc Anthony has listed for $12,000,000.

The multi-parcel encompasses more than eight acres, as per digital marketing materials, and our research indicates the main house and its surrounding, six-plus-acre grounds was purchased by Mister Anthony in late 2000 — shortly after he married his beauty queen first ex-wife, Daynara Torres — for $3.7 million. A second house on just over two, adjacent and mostly wooded grounds was purchased in late 2008 — shortly after his famously bootied international superstar second ex-wife Jennifer Lopez bore him twins — for $2,050,000. (Mister Anthony married for the third time, to model and beauty blogger Shannon de Lima, in November 2014, five months after his divorce from Miz Lopez was finalized.)

Back when they were still able to make their complicated marriage work — Miz Lopez described it in her 2014 memoir as “tumultuous, passionate and explosive” — Mister Anthony and Mister Lopez engaged the high-cost services of high-profile interior designer Thom Filicia to do over the 16-room red brick mansion that was originally built in 1941 and measures in at a substantial 10,084 square feet with ten bedrooms, eight original fireplaces and eight full and five half bathrooms.

The comfortably soigné main floor living and entertaining spaces include a gallery the spans the full width of the mansion, a foyer with a gracious curved staircase, and amply proportioned formal living and dining rooms, both with fireplaces and lacquered oak floors and the latter with shimmering, silver leaf wall covering. Other rooms of import on the main level include a mahogany paneled library, a knotty pine paneled office/study and a sunroom with radiant heated terrazzo floors. A butler’s pantry links the shimmering dining room with a spacious, expensively equipped eat in kitchen with slab marble counter tops, a double wide center island with four-stool snack counter, industrial-style light fixtures and a massive, imported range that this property gossip can assure the children cost more than twice what a full-time minimum wager worker in California earns in an entire year.

The upper level has laundry facilities, a kitchenette and five guest/family bedrooms that include a luxuriously appointed guest suite and a four-bed bunkroom with fireplace and en suite bathroom. The duplexed master suite features a massive marble bathroom with marble fireplace, a pair of custom-fitted dressing rooms and, on the upper level, an office space as well as a full-service beauty salon and spa.

A finished subterranean level is decked out celebrity style with a state-of-the-art 17-seat movie theater, a professional-grade recording studio with sound proofed recording booth, a kitchenette and “ample storage space.”

The expansive estate, thickly treed with mature cedar, beech and cypress specimen trees, has a bluestone terrace that overlooks a swimming pool, open-air poolside pavilion, a tennis court, a sizable carriage house perfect for on-site security and a 4,491-square-foot, circa 1973 Colonial-style guesthouse with, per current listing details, five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.

Every celebrity gossip whose been around for more than two minutes knows the two-time Grammy and seven-time Latin Grammy winner has long owned or maintained a multimillion dollar residence in Los Angeles. He and Miz Lopez owned lavish spread in Bel Air they sold in late 2009 for $6.2 million, a few months before they spent $8.5 million on a 17,000-plus-square-foot spread in the guard-gated Hidden Hills community that Miz Lopez continues to own. After he and Miz Lopez split, Mister Anthony shacked up for a bit in a rented house near the border between West Hollywood and Beverly Hills and in April 2013 he dropped $2,250,000 on a 1980s mock-Med mini-mansion in a pocket-sized and freeway-adjacent gated enclave in Encino that he’s had listed on the open market since November (2014) at $2,750,000.
