McCarthy reportedly offered roughly $200,000 more than the original asking price for the single-story home for her and her husband, actor and filmmaker Ben Falcone, according to Variety which confirmed the purchase through tax records.

The 2,800-square-foot, four-bedroom, and three-and-a-half bath farmhouse was built by Hunter Homes and sits within the Valley Village neighborhood of Los Angeles. Clad in steel grey, the exterior boasts a "bold" look, according to the listing.

By contrast, the interior of the home encompasses mainly white walls mixed with light wide-plank oak flooring, custom paneling and designer light fixtures.
