According to the gossip kings at TMZ, Latin singer-songwriter, actor, and record producer, Marc Anthony, has just purchased an Encino mock-Med mini mansion in the Amestoy Estates area which is located north of Ventura Blvd and South of the 101 Freeway (as a matter of fact the home is a stones throw away from the 101 and not too far from the old Edward Everett Horton ranch) for reportedly $2.5 million. Online property records dont reflect any transactions occurring in this amount or in Anthony's name so we have to assume that TMZ is correct and that the records will be updated  in the near future. 

The home measures 5 Beds/4.5 Baths on 6,263 sqft on a total lot size of 0.41 acres built in 1988. Prior to Anthony's purchase, this property was purchased for $1.4 million on January 14, 2011. The pictures shown above are from the 2011 listing and not the most recent sale.  However, the listing description from when the home was first listed on October 4, 2012 is below which states that over $300K has been invested in the property so one can assume that the home looks much different than what is shown above.
Enter your entertainer's paradise. Tucked away behind gates and within a gated community is this gorgeous Spanish mansion. Over $300,000 in renovations have made this home an idyllic retreat. From the gorgeous hardwood floors to massive chandeliers to new electrical and plumbing no cost was spared. Enter into a grand foyer with soaring cathedral ceilings and impressive finishes. The home comes complete with 6 beds and 9 baths. The massive gourmet kitchen comes complete with commercial grade venting hood, SubZero Dual Fridges and Freezers, a Wolf Grill and Stove that would make a chef salivate. In the spacious master bed you can curl up by the fireplace or enjoy a cup of coffee on the balcony. The master bath is an absolute treat with a fireplace, dual steam showers, dual wash closets and dual vanities and, not to mention, every woman's dream... a store sized closet! Additional features are a recording studio and so much more. Inquire ASAP! 
Prior to this home, TMZ stated that Anthony was leasing a 10,000 sqft Italian Renaissance villa in West Hollywood for $23,800 per month in October 2011 shortly after his separation from Jennifer Lopez in July 2011 with Anthony eventually filing for divorce on April 9, 2012.

When Anthony was married to Jennifer Lopez (married on June 5, 2004), they lived in a massive Hidden Hills mansion (shown above) which is currently occupied (and I guess 100% owned??) by Jennifer Lopez. The home measures 9 Beds/11.25 Baths on 17,129 sqft on a total lot size of 3.04 acres built in 1993. This home was purchased by the Lopez and Anthony on January 15, 2010 for $8.2 million from retired businessman, Andrew McIntyre, who was the former chairmen of AME Inc., which was acquired by Arctic Oil and Gas in the later 1980's. The listing description states:
SPECTACULAR, ONE-OF-A-KIND, CUSTOM ESTATE WITH ABSOLUTELY PANORAMIC, CITY LIGHT VIEWS. OVER 17,000 SQUARE FEET OF QUALITY AND LUXURY ON A HUGE (3-ACRE) DOUBLE LOT. FABULOUS, 20-SEAT THEATER, HUGE GAME ROOM, STELLAR GYM, RECORDING STUDIO, GOURMET KITCHEN, STUDY, BIG BONUS ROOM, FULL GUEST SUITE WITH PRIVATE ENTRANCE, WINE CELLAR, BIG SPORTS COURT, 8-CAR GARAGE WITH MOTORCOURT, EXPANSIVE ROLLING LAWNS, POOL, SPA, BBQ CENTER, MATURE TREES!
