Lea Michele has splashed out $1.4 million on a new house.

The 'Glee' actress - who portrays Rachel Berry in the musical drama TV series and is dating co-star Cory Monteith - purchased the plush new two-bedroom home, which features two bathrooms, a solar-heated salt-water swimming pool, in the Los Angeles area earlier this month.

The abode also contains a master suite with French doors and a bath with a steam shower and natural-looking Carrara marble.

Lea's purchase comes shortly after her 'Glee' co-star Kevin McHale - who plays paraplegic student Artie Abrams in the show - bought a new three-bedroom $1 million home in Hollywood Hills, which contains 2,000 feet of living space.

The 23-year-old actor's spacious abode contains two bathrooms - which both feature double showers - an open plan kitchen and dining area, as well as impressive views of Downtown Los Angles.

Kevin's master bedroom contains a sitting area which could allow him to entertain guests from the comfort of his own bed, while there are stunning views available from a balcony in one of the bedrooms.
