Russell Brand buys a £2.2million Los Angeles love-nest for him and Katy Perry for Christmas as he puts his London bachelor pad on the market

If the rumours are true this could be the home where Russell Brand and Katy Perry will begin their life together.

The comedian bought this £2.2million house in Los Angeles for him and his pop star girlfriend as a Christmas present to them both.

And if he really has popped the question to Miss Perry, as today's report suggests, this could turn out to be the perfect lovenest for the happy couple.

The four-storey 1920s house, in an affluent part of the Califonian city, boasts four bedrooms - one of which is decorated for a child - a modern kitchen and a large outdoor swimming pool.

It also has a den off the lounge, four bathrooms and a ladies powder room.

The master bedroom has high ceilings, a bathroom with a double vanity unit, a spa tub, separate walk-in shower and a views across downtown Los Angeles and beyond.

The 34-year-old comedian, who bought the house from music video director Mark Romanek, has been dating Perry, 25, since they met at the MTV's Video Music Awards in September.

He is reportedly planning to jet off to the States for New Year after she spent the week before Christmas in London with him.

They spent their time shopping in Shoreditch, tobogganing on Hampstead Heath and Brand even took Perry to see his beloved West Ham United.

A report in the Sunday Mirror today said Brand proposed to Perry during her stay after he recently confessed: 'I'd love to marry Katy - hopefully it's heading that way and I'm really happy.'

Just two weeks before Christmas he was seen out shopping for a diamond ring.

And after the I Kissed A Girl singer flew back to spend Christmas in Los Angeles with her friends and family, her noticable absence may have prompted Brand to up sticks and head for the States to be with his lady.

He has reportedly put his flat in north London on the market for £2.5million, suggesting a permanent move to the US could be imminent.

A source close to the comedian said: 'Russell knows Katy's the one for him.

'He's never been into a girl like he has with her and they're besotted. He asked her to marry him last week and she quickly said yes.

'They don't know when the wedding will be but they are planning to make it in 2010 if the schedules can work.'

But Brand's taste in jewellery apparently didn't impress Perry who reportedly wasn't happy with the Cartier ring that he presented to her.

The source added: 'Russell is searching for a jewellery designer to make up a ring in time for New Year after the pair discussed what they wanted to have.

'It's a race against time because Russell wants to have it ready for New Year's Eve.

'Katy's stylist friend and Russell's people have been quietly making enquiries for the couple so they can find exactly what they want.

'Katy's thrilled with Russell and how he is making so much effort. Russell also has the approval of Katy's parents and everyone in the pair's close circle know about the engagement.'
