Prior to marrying Ben Affleck, leading lady Jennifer Garner lived in a very private home in Sherman Oaks, CA with ex-hubby Scott Foley. The couple purchased the luxurious rambler in 1999 at the height of Garner’s days on “Alias” for a mere $790,000. They sold the house prior to their divorce in March 2003 for $900,000. The 1950-built home is now worth a bit more, listed on the Shermon Oaks real estate market for $2,995,000.

Garner is also worth a bit more, moving up from her Golden Globe performance in “Alias” to Hollywood’s big screen with roles in “13 Going on 30″, “Juno” and most recently, “Arthur” with Russel Brand and Helen Mirren.

Garner’s former home holds all the things that “executive or celebrity clients are looking for” starting with the gates, high walls, and shrubbery to block the estate from curious fans and paparazzi.

The 3,073-square-foot home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms as well as a kitchen filled with gourmet amenities and a wet bar. If that’s not enough, the entire house is outfitted as a smart home, customized by a computer hub that controls the lighting, heating and cooling, music, water filtration system, and swimming pool.

An outdoor, heated salt-water pool has swimmers’ jets, and attached spa, both with views of the Los Angeles valley and San Gabriel mountains.

The master bedroom features heated floors for those chilly L.A. mornings, an enormous master closet, spa tub, and steam shower.

Touches like a double-sided fireplace, custom Carrera marble floors, original hardwood, and surround sound complete the luxury pad, and push its price well over the median Sherman Oaks home value of $358,100.
