From the Boston Globe:
A huge Scituate home for Ben and J. Lo
By Carol Beggy & Al Young, Globe Staff, 4/9/2003
JUST JENNY FROM THE SCITUATE BLOCK We heard they were moving to Cambridge. Then it was Southie. But it’s Scituate. Or so Us magazine is reporting in its next edition, which hits newsstands Friday. Here’s the news: Former Cantabrigian Ben Affleck and his main squeeze, Jennifer Lopez, have ”picked out a $3 million estate.” Lovely. The couple were spotted recently on the South Shore, including house hunting in Cohasset. But it’s the secluded Scituate property that caught their attention, we’re told. The spot they’ve settled on, the mag reported, is a 5,200-plus-square-foot, 11-room house on 6.1 acres. A rep for the Grand Gables Realty Group, which is selling the property, would not comment to Us. And they were mum when called by us yesterday. But here are a few more details of the house the glam couple may one day call home: It has a reception hall, grand dining room, breakfast room, two kitchens (including a chef’s kitchen), four bedrooms (including a master suite with views of the ocean), and, yes, a large walk-in closet. (Silent scream.) The dynamic duo is hardly in need of places to stay. Affleck has a New York City loft and a house in Beverly Hills. Lopez has a house in Los Angeles and a place in Miami that is regularly described as a mansion.
