With her first baby on the way, it's no surprise that New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel is officially nesting. And, let us be the first to say, her new SoCal abode lives up to her extreme levels of adorableness. With a simple, storybook facade and massive interior, it's both unassuming and posh. Dare we call it the perfect house next door for America's favorite girl next door?

Now, for the details. Deschanel and producer fiancé (and baby daddy) Jacob Pechenik purchased the digs together for just over $4.5 million, according to both Variety and Curbed L.A. It has a grassy backyard, six bedrooms, six and a half baths, an extra-large living room, and a truly lust-worthy master closet.

The only surprising part? It's in the quiet neighborhood of Manhattan Beach. While most celebs gravitate toward L.A. 'hoods like Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Bel Air, the pair purchased 30 minutes south on the 405 in the sleepy South Bay beach city. Click through to see why the house is well worth the half-hour drive.
