Madonna has bought a Manhattan mansion with 13 bedrooms for $US40 million, the New York Post reported on Tuesday.
The paper noted that despite the high price tag, the 26-room mansion on the Upper East Side still shook from the nearby subway trains.
However, Madonna evidently overlooked this inconvenience in favour of having such rare New York amenities as a two-car garage, a 3,000sqm garden, nine fireplaces, an elevator, a wine cellar with a grotto, 13 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
Madonna, 50, will not be moving in any time soon. The report says she plans extensive renovations for her family.
