The acting couple had traded out the SUV that Ben drove them in the day before for a sleeker black Mercedes.

He wore a casual charcoal T-shirt and sported his rugged dark beard.

Jennifer looked similarly casual and had on more modest makeup than usual.

The If You Had My Love singer had her brunette tresses tied back in a simple ponytail, which showcased her sparkling diamond earrings.

She also had on a pair of chunky sunglasses that she removed once they had parked.

Once they drove onto the gated property, the couple paused for a bit in the car and couldn’t seem to withhold their intimacy anymore.

They leaned in toward each other while still buckled up to share some sweet kisses before heading into the mansion for a tour.

The two seem on the cusp of moving in together after Jennifer already took steps to make LA her new permanent home.

The Out Of Sight star has been spotted touring schools in the area for her children in recent days, and they’re reportedly on board with relocating to the West Coast. 

She’s normally based in Miami, where her kids can easily spend time with their father, singer Marc Anthony.

One of the mansions they visited, named il Magione, would potentially provide plenty of privacy for the couple, thanks to the fences surrounding the estate.

It also had a large gate at the head of the drive way with a guardhouse for security. 

The home was designed to wow guests from the start thanks to its towering, ornate entrance hall.

Even with staff caring for the estate, the couple will have privacy thanks to a separate driveway for employees.

The enormous mansion has a total of 31,450 square feet of space, so there will be more than enough room for all of their children to stay in the house together, plus guests.

Jennifer shares two twins with her ex Marc — 13-year-old Max and Emme — while Ben has three children with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner: Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, nine.

All five of the kids could have their own bedrooms, as the home has eight, plus 12 bathrooms, although they’re likely to spend plenty of time with their other parents. 

The mansion has plenty of ways to cool down on scorching LA days thanks to a large circular outdoor pool, while there’s another massive pool setup inside.

Ben and Jennifer’s romance has been going strong since April, when they reunited after the singer broke off her engagement to Alex Rodriguez amid rumors of his alleged infidelities.

The Argo star and director reportedly got back in touch with her via email before they met again in person, and according to TMZ, his emails weren’t merely friendly, but apparently were filled with longing for the If You Had My Love singer.

Their first tentative steps toward meeting in person again involved Ben driving to an upscale hotel, where he was picked up by Jennifer’s SUV and ferried to her LA home so that they could spend some time together in private.

Later in May, Ben and Jennifer took a weeklong trip to snowy Montana, and later that month they had a multi-day vacation to Miami, where the Hustlers star lives with her twins.

Lately, the couple have been blending their families more and allowing their children to get to know each other. 

Earlier this week, Ben went out for a trip to Universal Studio’s CityWalk with Samuel and Seraphina, plus Jennifer’s daughter Emme. 

Samuel also got a chance to catch up with Emme and her brother Max when the three joined J.Lo and Ben for a trip to the amusement park, where they were seen getting soaked on the Jurassic World water ride. 

The actors first met in 2001 on the set of their box-office bomb Gigli, and they made their relationship official the following year, shortly after Jennifer divorced her second husband.

They got engaged later in 2002 and scheduled their wedding for September 2003 but called it off with only a few days notice.

Ben and Jennifer then split in early 2004, but reportedly remained friends afterward, which may have helped them get close again.
