The more than three-acre spread centers on a 17,129-square-foot mansion with views of the San Gabriel Mountains and the cityscape.

The listing details describe the 1990s Traditional-style home as a "perfect fit for the working entertainer." A breezeway connects the main living areas to a separate wing for work or entertaining.

A recording studio, a dance studio/gym, a 20-seat theater, a saloon/lounge with a bar and nanny's quarters make up the work/entertainment wing.

Lopez, 45, has extensive film credits, including starring roles in this year's "The Boy Next Door" and "Lila & Eve" and the 1997 movie "Selena."

Her eight studio albums include her 1999 debut album "On the 6" and her most recent "A.K.A.," released last year.

The property was purchased in 2009 for $8.2 million.
