Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have finally ended their year-long house hunt, settling in a California ranch house in Pacific Palisades, which they purchased from Hollywood producer Brian Grazer for $17.55 million. But, believe it or not, the home had been listed for $27.5 million! These A-listers must have some serious negotiating skills.
The 8,800-square-foot, five-bedroom, eight-bath home was designed in the 1930s by California architect Cliff May, who is credited with pioneering the California ranch-style home. But, the home isn't short of a Hollywood heritage either: film and stage star Gregory Peck bought the low-slung house in 1947. Rooms in the one-story building flow directly onto one another with large picture windows blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living — a May trademark. The home also features a swimming pool, a guesthouse, and an office/gym/art studio. No word yet on whether I'll be invited as an esteemed guest, though. To see more photos,
