Jennifer Lopez Buys Estate - A $10 million estate in The Hamptons is now owned by Jennifer Lopez after she buys the luxury eight-bedroom residence in the town of Water Mill with a swimming pool, sauna and steam room, as well as a private cinema.

The 43-year-old, who famously dubbed herself “Jenny from the block,” is apparently keen to stay close to home, as she was born in the New York borough of The Bronx.

However, her new home in the Hamptons is a world away from her origins in terms of lifestyle, as rather than being cramped and urban it is set in three acres of lush gardens.

The star, whose films include Out of Sight and The Wedding Planner and who later became a judge on American Idol, has long been looking for a home on Long Island, according to the New York Post.

She settled on her new mansion after visiting it several times with her 25-year-old boyfriend Caspar Smart and her two children.

As well as the house’s eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms and many other amenities, several other factors attracted Lopez to the home.

Its position on a cul-de-sac near a secluded bay makes it exceptionally private - not that there are many prying eyes among discreet Hamptons residents.

And the estate has enough land to build a guest house for visitors if Lopez decides she needs more space.

The abode’s interior is decorated in soothing shades of ivory, cream and taupe — fitting, since the Love Don’t Cost A Thing singer famously requests all-white dressing rooms furnished with couches, drapes and candles in the same hue.

Hardwood floors, built-in storage and a sweeping central staircase add substantial charm to the custom-built home.

While the $10million price tag for the mansion, built in 2006, may seem somewhat steep, it will not even make a dent in the fortune of the Hispanic entertainer.

She topped the Forbes Celebrity 100 list last year thanks to her earnings of $52 million from American Idol and her other enterprises.
