    According to the New York Daily News, Jennifer Lopez just dropped $22 million on a luxury penthouse in the same Manhattan building as Chelsea Clinton and NASCAR star Jeff Gordon.

    Designed by Nate Berkus’ interior designer hubby, Jeremiah Brent, J.

    J. Lo’s new penthouse is the building’s crown jewel. The truly exceptional duplex penthouse has 6,250 square feet of interior space and over 3,000 square feet of private outdoor space on two levels. The home is outfitted with the ultimate in luxury finishes, including Arclinea custom kitchen cabinets, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, wide plank rift oak floors, Italian marble slab bathrooms, and a Crestron smart home system.

    J. Lo last went big in New York when she spent $10 million for a gorgeous house in the Hamptons. On the West Coast, she still lives in the Hidden Hills mega-mansion she once shared with ex-husband, Marc Anthony.

      She may be “Maid in Manhattan,” but Jennifer Lopez loves the Hamptons enough to spend $10 million on a chic 3-acre spread in Water Mill, NY.

      First reported by the New York Post, Lopez, along with her young boyfriend Caspar Smart and her twins Max and Emme, were seen multiple times touring the property before Lopez officially dropped $10 million for the 8-bedroom, 7.5 bathroom, 8,500 square foot custom home.

      Lopez’s new purchase is the perfect summer retreat with every amenity she and her family need including a sparkling pool, pool house, theater, sauna, steam room and covered porches. The light, bright Hamptons beach house is perfectly private and situated on a secluded cul-de-sac. The property features the gorgeous main home, as well as room for J-Lo to build a guest house and tennis court, if she’s so inclined.

      This news comes on the heels of yesterday’s scoop that ex-husband Marc Anthony just spent $2.5 million on a new home in Encino, CA. Coast-to-coast, the former duo is buying up some high-priced real estate!
