NEW­PORT. (AP) — For­mer "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno and his wife have pur­chased an ocean­front man­sion in New­port.

Leno paid $13.5 mil­lion for the 18,000-square-foot home, called Seafair. It has eight bed­rooms and 11 bath­rooms and comes with a pool, a ten­nis court and a pri­vate beach.

Luck­ily for Leno, who col­lects cars, it also boasts a six-car garage.

The house sits on 9 acres (3.64 hectares) and was built in 1936. It was pre­vi­ously owned by Den­ver min­ing heir Verner Zevola Reed Jr., who was an Amer­i­can banker and diplo­mat. Reed served as U.S. ambassador to Morocco from 1981 to 1985.
