THE pounds 4m EXTENSION; Banderas and Griffith buy out neighbours to expand mansion.

HOLLYWOOD couple Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith have splashed out around pounds 4million on a plush new family compound.

Not content with a house and garden, they have bought their next door neighbour's estate and merged it with their own.

Iit means that Mask of Zorro star Banderas, 40, and Griffith, 43, will have more than 19,000 square feet of home to share with their three-year-old daughter Stella. The couple's new home will boast 13 bedrooms, as well as a ballroom, wine vault, pool, greenhouse, sauna, gym and studio.

The actors, who married in a low-key registry office ceremony in Britain four years ago, bought the first house in May last year for pounds 2.7million and it is already considered by neighbours to be "truly fantastic".

The plan to merge the 75-year-old Mediterranean style villa with the modern ranch-style building that sits next door.

The new estate will cover one acre in the trendy Hancock Park area of Los Angeles.
