Jennifer Lopez just sealed the deal on one of the best houses in all of Los Angeles ... TMZ has learned.

Our real estate spies tell us, J Lo closed on an 8-acre Bel-Air estate and got a deal. The prior owner, Sela Ward -- who is repped by Williams & Williams -- was asking $40 mil and we're told Jennifer snagged it for a very reasonable $28 mil.

The property is spectacular ... the main house is 13,000 square feet, and get this ... it has its own lake and a beach!  

The architecture is French stone country villa ... and super romantic.

To get to the front door you walk across a covered bridge, above a creek.

J Lo, who was repped by super realtor Brett Lawyer, is selling her Hidden Hills estate for $12.5 mil. That house is also great ... 17,000 square feet on 3 acres. 

She's got a small house on a way bigger lot. $28 mil buys a lot, right?
