Benji Madden has splashed out $1.1 million on a new home in Los Angeles.

The Good Charlotte rocker dropped the sum for a rustic-looking bungalow tucked away in the Hollywood Hills.

The California home boasts 2,183 square-feet of living space.

The residence features three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a fireplace and an interior covered almost entirely in wood, including hardwood floors, ceilings, beams, cabinets, dressers and wood framed doors.

According to TMZ, the 33-year-old guitarist purchased the property back in February after it sat on the market for 192 days.

The home sits on a 25,000 square-foot lot near a canyon in the hills.

Benji founded Good Charlotte with his identical twin brother, Joel, back in 1996.

The band, also comprising of bassist Paul Thomas, rhythm guitarist and keyboardist Billy Martin, and drummer Dean Butterworth, enjoyed somewhat of a break after the release of their last studio album, Cardiology, back in 2010.

The musicians hit the road in Australia last year supporting Keith Urban.

But recent reviews indicate Benji and Joel have already overstayed their welcome.

In addition to trekking across the country playing their old hits, the brothers are also the faces of two major corporate campaigns airing in Oz. Benji and Joel both feature in ads for Vodafone and fast food chicken joint KFC.

Website Music Feeds has kickstarted a petition to ‘get the Madden Brothers out of Australia’.

But Benji is still pressing hard for presence in the country.

The rocker will feature on a new single called Breakdown with local pop/rock favourite Tonight Alive.

The track is scheduled for release on March 12.
