According to TMZ, the deal took just one week and the pair paid nearly $15 million under the $75 million asking price.
It first hit the market in 2018 for $135 million but that price was slashed nearly in half when it was re-listed this year.
The home — referred to as the ‘Wallingford estate’ — sits on a 5-acre promontory and boasts 12 bedrooms and 24 bathrooms.
The listing reveals that it was ‘newly rebuilt and expanded’ and features a 12-car garage and parking for 80.
There is also a ‘one-of-a-kind’ indoor sports complex, a 5,000 square-foot guest penthouse, a caretaker house and a two-bedroom guard house on the grounds.
With the indoor sports facility, Jennifer has a full gym at her disposal as well as courts for basketball, pickleball, and a boxing ring.
There is also a sports lounge and a bar.
TMZ reports that there is also a full hair and nail salon, a home theater, wine cellar, whiskey lounge, as well as sauna and massage rooms.
A zero edge pool is located behind the main house and overlooks the area.
There are two private, gated entrances to the property.
Brett Lawyer — who has worked with Katy Perry and Madonna — represented the couple in the sale.
Meanwhile, the seller was represented by Ginger Glass of Compass.
On Wednesday, hoards of furniture was seen being moved into Ben and Jennifer’s new abode.
There were at least six vehicles parked outside the entrance and various rugs, flowers, and furnishings were unloaded and laid out on tarps.
There was also a massive white moving truck parked near the hedges surrounding the property.
Ben and Jennifer have dropped out of escrow on three properties in the past several months while at the height of their house hunt.
In March, the Hollywood A-listers changed their mind on a $64 million mansion in Pacific Palisades, as per TMZ.
It was unclear why they decided to drop out as they had seemed set on it in early March.
It has eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms and sits on 1.13 acres and includes a gym, professional media room, game room, an elevator, and a massive backyard with a pool and firepit area.
They were previously eyeing other home, also in the Pacific Palisades area, that was worth $34.5 million.
That property offers seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, and is located in the prestigious Rustic Canyon.
It also has a six car garage, detached guest house, a pool and dining room with fireplace as well as a chic bar. On the patio is a jacuzzi and outdoor kitchen, according to its listing.
In addition to a wine cellar, home gym and health spa, the property’s primary suite boasts a private balcony, dual bathrooms and closets.
Ben and Jennifer have been shopping for homes for months since deciding to list J-Lo’s Bel Air property for a whopping $42 million, more than the $28 million she had purchased it for in 2016.
According to reports, that home is currently in escrow with a possible buyer for $39 million.
The Argo actor recently sold off his mansion for around $30 million.
The extended search to find a home for the newlyweds and their blended family has been going on for about a year.
The pair were often photographed visiting high-priced properties around Los Angeles.
The A-listers nicknamed ‘Bennifer’ have been hunkering down by renting Australian billionaire James Packer’s $60 million Beverly Hills mansion amid their house hunt.
