New York native Rosie O'Donnell is coming home ... to a brand-new love nest.

The 50-year-old comedian and talk show host just picked up a 3,000-square-foot duplex in Manhattan's Greenwich Village for a cool $8 million that she'll be moving into with her fiancee of seven months, Michelle Rounds.

O'Donnell, who grew up on Long Island, had been living in the wealthy suburb of Nyack, New York, up until last year when she purchased a home in Chicago after taking a hosting gig on Oprah Winfrey's new OWN network, but by March the show had been canceled. She recently sold that Windy City pad for more than $5 million.

Rounds and O'Donnell may have only known each other for a year, but it seems they're on the relationship fast track and already have plans to turn one of their new home's four bedrooms into a nursery, according to O'Donnell herself. The former co-host of "The View, who popped the question to Rounds in December, revealed on her show earlier this year that her fiancee was trying to get pregnant at the time.

O'Donnell is already mom to four children with her ex-wife Kelli Carpenter, whom she split with in 2007 after being together for a decade. In 2009, O'Donnell began dating an artist from Texas named Tracy Kachtick-Anders before breaking up in early 2011. She then met headhunter Rounds, 41, at a coffee shop last summer. "She's literally perfection," O'Donnell told Us Weekly of her fiancee in January. "She's so unbelievably connected and refined. I so love her embracing her femininity in a real feminist manner. To be able to be a lesbian, feminine, feminist is pretty sexy."

And the couple can feel good about the fact that their swanky new abode is located in a green building that's awaiting LEED certification and features energy-efficient elevators, a remote monitoring system of electricity consumption, a water filtration system, and a rooftop garden meant to reduce stormwater runoff.

As for luxury touches, the apartment, according the building's website, is chock full of high-end Viking, Bosch, and Sub-Zero appliances, including a wine fridge; solid oak flooring; private storage; and marble finishes.
