He’s recently become single since splitting from wife Fergie after eight years together, moving out of the home they shared with their four-year-old son Axl.

But now Josh Duhamel is back on the market, he has splurged on a $2.65million bachelor pad, and the 45-year-old actor seemed more than pleased with his purchase.

The Transformers star told Architectural Digest he ‘instantly felt relaxed’ upon seeing the property in Encino, California, and that he chose it because it had a large amount of outdoor space.

Josh said: ‘One of the reasons I love living in L.A. is the indoor/outdoor, and this house is very indoor/outdoor.’

The actor added that he chose the home as it boasts a BBQ, swimming pool and fire pit, and that he often has a TV set up outside to watch sporting events – making for prime entertaining space.

On deciding why he wanted to live in this particular house he added: ‘I just walked in and I felt relaxed. I felt like this was a place where I can come in and just land every day.’
