Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are the owners of this 8,798 square-foot Pacific Palisades, California ranch home since 2009, when they purchased it for $17.5 million.
Built in the late 1930s, the Cliff May-designed low-slung house was innovative for its time and today is considered typical of his trademark designs. Rooms flow easily from one to another or onto patios, allowing for the passage from indoors to outdoors without stepping down. Large picture windows take in the views.
Gregoroy Peck lived in the one-story home until 1952 with his first wife, Greta. After a series of owners, the home was brought back to life in the mid-‘90s – updated, expanded and rebuilt to keep the structure intact and maximize the canyon, city and ocean views.
In addition to the five-bedroom, eight-bathroom main house, the 3-acre, cliffside compound includes a swimming pool, a guesthouse (built into the cliff under the main lawn) and an office/gym/art studio.
