A historic home in an Unesco World Heritage Site on the Spanish island of Ibiza has come to the market €10.8 million (US$11.7 million).

Dating to the 16th century, Palacio XI is in Dalt Vila—the oldest quarter in Ibiza Town, the island’s capital—which was designated a heritage site in 1999. The fortified enclave is a labyrinth of narrow, cobbled streets, ancient buildings and stunning views.

The four-storey home was acquired by the seller when it was in ruins and they embarked on a thorough restoration between 2014 and 2018, according to a spokesperson for the listing agency Charles Marlow Ibiza.

Mansion Global couldn’t identify the seller, or when or for how much they acquired the property.

Today, the house is a “blend of historic Ibiza charm and contemporary luxury,” said Tim Stacey, head of sales and rentals at Charles Marlow Ibiza. There are details like stone walls, tall beamed ceilings and grand stone arches, alongside features including an integrated sound system, comfort cooling and underfloor heating.

There’s a modern kitchen with a wine cooler, a dining room that opens out to the large main terrace, the pool area and a covered outdoor dining area, ideal for al-fresco entertaining.

There are also multiple living spaces, a roof terrace, a for-vehicle carport with EV charging, six bedrooms and “superb 360-degree views of Ibiza Town, the island, and Formentera [that] are truly breathtaking,” Stacey said.

Ibiza is considered one of the top luxury residential destinations globally, according to Knight Frank’s Prime International Residential Index, released earlier this year, which found prime property prices on the island rose 12% in 2023.

“Ibiza’s strength lies in its ability to provide an escape from metropolitan life,”  said Jack Harris, a partner in Knight Frank’s International Residential team . “It’s a place where one can recharge the batteries (yoga is a staple on the island), enjoy world-class cuisine and reconnect with nature—whether on the beach or in the heart of the island’s countryside.”

The celebrity power couple are selling the 12-bedroom, 24-bathroom home barely a year after buying it

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have officially put their massive Los Angeles mansion on the market for $68 million.

The lavish Beverly Hills property hit listing sites on Thursday, months after rumours began that the couple, who are reportedly estranged , were shopping the home around only a year after buying it for nearly $61 million.

The roughly 5-acre property—which is in a gated community and spans a massive 38,000 square feet—includes an indoor sports court with an adjacent gym and games room, according to the listing with Santiago Arana of the Agency. The firm declined to comment.

Lopez and Affleck paid $60.8 million for the compound in 2023.

Built in 2000, the house has 12 bedrooms and a whopping 24 bathrooms. The resort-sized property has the amenities to match, including a V-shaped pool with views over the surrounding hills, a detached two-bedroom guardhouse and a 5,000-square-foot guest penthouse, according to the listing.

Listing images of the house show that Lopez and Affleck have spent the past year warming up what were fairly white-washed interiors when they purchased the home. There’s now a rich, green-painted dining room, hardwood floors and carpeted over cold, polished-stone flooring.

The couple, who got married in 2022 after reuniting some 20 years after they called off their engagement in the early 2000s, purchased the megamansion following a house hunt that went on for several months, The Wall Street Journal reported at the time.

Representatives for Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
