Marc Anthony Ready to Dance 'Libre' of Homes on Both Coasts
By Melissa Allison
Marriage has made salsa phenom Marc Anthony want to "Vivir Mi Vida" with two fewer mansions. The singer has listed two homes, one on each coast, since he wed Venezuelan model Shannon De Lima in November. (See their newlywed glow above.)
The most recent listing asks $12 million for a compound in Long Island's exclusive Brookville area.
The centerpiece, as the New York Times first reported, is a sprawling 10-bedroom, eight-bath manor that includes five powder rooms, eight fireplaces, a mahogany-paneled library and a large butler's pantry. Amenities include a home theater, professional recording studio and an oversized master bathroom with its own fireplace.
For guests, there's a Colonial home with 4,800 square feet, five bedrooms and 4.5 baths that the Times said Anthony remodeled with an "all-white motif."
The grounds also include an oversized pool, tennis court and carriage house.The listing agent for the home, which Anthony bought in 2000 and owned during his marriage to Jennifer Lopez, is Dolly Lenz of Dolly Lenz Real Estate.
That's just for starters.
Eight days after his wedding, Anthony also listed a Spanish-style mansion in Southern California for $2.75 million.
The six-bedroom, nine-bath home in Encino features a home theater, wine room, indoor/outdoor bars and a master bathroom with, you guessed it, its own fireplace.
