The former couple settled into the luxury property after marrying in 2004, and the stars went on to raise their now-seven-year-old twins, Max and Emme, at the home until their split in 2011.

Now Anthony, who has since remarried, is looking to offload the pad, which boasts 10 bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a pool, recording studio and tennis court.

It has been placed on the market for $9 million (£5.6 million) and realtor Luis D. Ortiz, who features on reality show Million Dollar Listing New York, tells the ambience of the house is actually very telling of Anthony's personality.

"It's very understated, very down-to-earth, very cozy," he says. "This is what I like most about it: It tells you this house was owned by someone who came from nothing and has reached such a level (of fame) but never forgot where he came from."

Anthony wed Venezuelan model Shannon De Lima last year (14).

The property news emerges months after Lopez listed the sprawling Hidden Hills, California mansion she purchased during their marriage in 2010 on the market for $17 million (£10.6 million).
