The Real Deal New York

J.Lo and Marc Anthony’s Brookville home to be razed and replaced

The celebrity marriage between Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony officially ended in 2014, and the home the couple once shared in Brookville, roughly 30 miles from New York City and one of the most expensive small towns in the country, went on the market the following year. Built in 1941, the 10,500-square-foot home on a gated 8.5-acre compound listed for $12 million in 2015. It then took a substantial price cut. Pailla Malla Reddy, who bought the home for $4.5 million in 2017, recently told Newsday that renovating the Georgian-style brick mansion was simply too expensive. He now plans to tear down the 10-bedroom home and replace it with a new one that has up to 17,000 square feet for his wife and two children. Brookville officials approved demolition on Nov. 26 and Reddy hopes to have construction going on the property as soon as Dec. 14. [Newsday]
