Ahead of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s wedding celebration, here’s a peek at their Georgia mansion

The ‘Big House’ has with its own 10,000 square foot guest home

With an estimated net worth of $150 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, Ben Affleck has managed to lock down a number of luxury real estate investments over the years. Most recently, the Academy Award winner decided to put his $7.5 million Georgia mansion on the market before ultimately deciding to keep it all to himself. Now he’s hosting a wedding celebration with his bride Jennifer Lopez at the estate.

According to Homes and Gardens, the home is a remarkable imitation plantation house. Overlooking the North Newport River on Hampton Island, the “Big House” estate sprawls over 86 acres. At 6,000 square feet, the mansion features classic furnishings and pinewood flooring. Two other structures, the “Summer Cottage” and “Oyster House,” are also included with the estate.

The Summer Cottage can be found just down the path from the rear of the veranda. The cottage features a large fireplace, metal roof and a wonderful location just next to the river. The home’s outdoor deck offers an overlook of the river and the nearby dock hosts a replica of Ernest Hemingway’s fishing boat, Pilar.

The Oyster House features three master suites and five bedrooms across its 10,000 square foot structure, including kids’ rooms that feature bunk beds built out of salvaged timber from old sailing ships.

The estate also comes equipped with equestrian facilities and a private deep-water dock with access to the sea.

Engel & Völkers America’s Richard Mopper spoke with Homes and Gardens on the estate’s elegant offerings.

“This property truly captures the spirit of Savannah’s Southern charm,” he said. “From its veranda views of the river and expansive pastures, to the properties’ multiple luxurious residences adorned with decadent features and classic Southern style, every corner of the estate exudes the warmth and hospitality that are unique to America’s South.”

The home was listed on the market for $7.6 million in the past. But, Affleck later decided to keep the property. Now the Hollywood icon is set to host a wedding celebration party with his new bride, Jennifer Lopez, at the estate.
