Brooke Shields Asks $35K a Month for a Mansion With a Blue Lagoon

shutterstock_313318262Nothing comes between Brooke Shields and her Los Angeles home – except renters willing to pay $35,000 a month.

Neighbors Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, who are divorcing but continue to live together, reportedly rented the place last year as a back-up property while theirs was being renovated.

Shields, meanwhile, spends most of her time in New York, leaving open her Swiss chalet-style mansion in the family-friendly enclave of Pacific Palisades. It’s plenty big for a family, with 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and multiple dining, lounging and television-watching areas.

Even the master bathroom has a large-screen television, along with a soaking tub and a fireplace with a fainting – or dressing – couch, depending on your mood.

The gated home measures a roomy 5,345 square feet but offers numerous cozy enclaves, from a television room with its own kitchenette and seating area to an open-style upstairs library and study with built-ins and exposed beam ceilings.

It boasts expansive decks on each level with treetop views, and a wooded yard with a Blue Lagoon-style pool.

The listing agent is Dan Urbach of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
