Former Melissa Etheridge and Ben Affleck Estate Hits Market for $15.9 Million

Brentwood Mansion Known for Its Celebrity History Now for Sale 

One very secluded Brentwood estate, on a property previously owned by celebrities Melissa Etheridge and Ben Affleck, is set to hit the market on May 31 for $15.9 million, according to Mansion Global.

The home, located on Westridge Road in Brentwood, has six bedrooms and is nestled among mature sycamore and oak trees. The estate was built in 2018 by Harrison Design Associates, the property offers a secluded and serene setting, as described by the listing agents.

Etheridge and Affleck lived at the address at different times during the 2000s when a 1930s house stood on the property. The current owners demolished the old structure and constructed a 7,942-square-foot residence in an American traditional style. Enhancing the park-like ambiance, the owners added a sycamore-lined lane, landscaped gardens, a fountain with a koi pond, and a 41-foot pool, all visible from the home’s interior through numerous shutter windows and French doors.

Ernie Carswell of Douglas Elliman said, via Mansion Global, “When you enter off of Westridge Road, there is a straight alley of young sycamores that have been planted by the owners leading to the motor court and front of the house.” He added that celebrities, “are attracted by the incredible, surprising privacy of the lot” 

While the property was once owned by Etheridge and Affleck, neither lived there for an extended period. Etheridge bought the property in early 2002 for $3.6 million and sold it several years later for $4 million, according to public records.

A trust associated with Affleck purchased the home in late 2004, during his relationship with Jennifer Garner. The trust, managed by Gary Kress, Affleck’s longtime business manager, sold the property before the end of that year.
