Phil Collins buys Jennifer Lopez's former mansion, Banderas and Griffith sell LA house

What do Phil Collins and Jennifer Lopez have in common? A seven-bedroom mansion in Miami Beach.

According to the Miami Herald, the British-born rocket purchased a 12,150-square-foot villa that was once owned by Jenny from the Block for about $33 million.

Along with the seven bedrooms, the villa at 5800 North Bay Rd. includes 200 feet of bayfront, a wine cellar, a summer kitchen and a pool.

“The grounds are the star of the whole thing,” broker Nelson Gonzalez, who represented the seller told the Herald. “The lot is about 53,000 square feet with a downtown view and the previous owners brought in about 80 royal palm trees and it luckily already had two beautiful huge banyan trees. There’s also a 6,000-gallon Japanese koi pond.”

The Herald reported that Lopez had sold the mansion in 2005 for $13.9 million to healthcare entrepreneur Mark Gainor and his wife Elyse. The couple then listed it for $40 million in 2010.

In other real estate news, actors – and former couple – Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith have sold their marital home in Hancock Park, California for nearly $16 million.

The 1925 mansion was designed by Hoover Dam architect Gordon B Kaufmaan and the former couple combined two properties to create the 1.5-acre site, the Los Angeles Times reported.

It boasts hand-stenciled coffered ceilings, vaulted beams and wood-paneled ceilings with a two-story banquet hall and a two-story kitchen. Within the 15,100-square-feet, three-story living space there is also a paneled library, a recording studio, a gym, elevator, 4 fireplaces, 13 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.

Griffith and Banderas, who are in the midst of a divorce, bought the property for $4.2 million in 1999 and spent $1.3 million a year later for an adjacent lot.
