We all swooned over Ben Affleck when we first saw him in Pearl Harbor when we were young, then we saw him as Batman, it was over. He has many properties across the country, and one of them is right in Georgia. Currently, Affleck is selling his Savannah mansion for a pretty $7.6 million.
According to Engel & Völkers Savannah, the best way to describe the mansion as a "remarkable recreation of a Southern antebellum Greek Revival plantation home." Pretty much when you think of the South, this is the house that would pop into your mind.
This home couldn't be in a better spot really. Being in Savannah, you will get a historic district, huge oak trees with Spanish moss surrounding and an ocean just right down the road. Looks like it's time to start saving for your dream celeb home.
The mansion is a ginormous 6,000-square-feet and it sits on 87 acres of land. This home is nicknamed the "The Big House," which is a pretty fitting name for the property. You'll be looking out onto the North Newport River that is located on Hampton Island, Georgia for an amazing backdrop in your backyard.
The foundation was built in good ole 2000 and houses three bedrooms and five bathrooms. There are original pine flooring throughout the house and has 15-foot high celilings. Are you thinking what we're thinking? Massive Christmas tree.
According to Realestate Boston, Affleck was shooting a movie with Sandra Bullock back in 1999 and actually fell in love with our great state. He just so happened to come back and purchase this house and property in 2003 for $7.11 million.
Since it has been on the market for a while, the price has dropped 15% since it was listed, so you would be getting a deal if you were to decide to purchase this spot.
There are also two other properties on the land. The "Summer Cottage" is secluded and on the path to the river, and the "Oyster House" is 10,000-square-feet with three master suites and additional five bedrooms.
Georgia is filled with amazing real estate and there are some that are a little more afforable than "The Big House." There is actually a tiny house in Alpharetta for sale that is less than $30k for you can purchase to be your forever home.
