Jennifer Garner tears down Brentwood home for renovated abode

Jennifer Garner is tearing down her Brentwood home and starting over nearly three years following her divorce from Ben Affleck.

Garner, 48, purchased the California property in 2019 for $7,882,800. This marks the first home for the star since selling the marital house she shared with Affleck for about $32 million.

Up until her divorce, Garner and Affleck, 48, had lived there for nearly a decade. 

Meanwhile, the “13 Going on 30” star has taken a wrecking ball to the once four-bedroom, three-bathroom abode spanning 3,245 square feet and instead is building a whole new home from scratch. The original home was built in 1930.

She was spotted on Thursday checking in on the construction and progress of the house. Sporting a casual black shawl, jeans and a baby pink mask, Garner was seen inquiring about the renovations. 

The new home-to-be sits on .4 acres of land. This is a downsize from her former ranch-style abode, which spanned over three acres of land. The house under construction appears to resemble a Cape Cod-inspired design, perhaps a nod to the East Coast vibes favored by her famed domestic diva pal, Martha Stewart.

Overall, the luxury residential neighborhood is known for its upscale restaurants, cleaner air and excellent private schools. 

Garner and Affleck share three children together: two daughters, Violet, 15, and Seraphina 12, and one son, Samuel, 8. 

The actress will next be seen in the time-travel film “The Adam Project” opposite Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana. Also on tap: The Apple TV+ series “My Glory Was I Had Such Friends,” about woman who turns to her pals for support as she prepares for a life-saving heart transplant, is in pre-production.
