Home sweet home! Chris Martin has purchased a home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles — and it just so happens to be right across the street from his estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow, multiple sources tell Us Weekly.

The home has a European, yet modern, aesthetic, a source tells Us, and features an all-white interior with clean architecture. Situated directly across the street from his ex (the spouses of ten years "consciously uncoupled" in March), the location allows for their two children, Apple, 10, and Moses, 8, to spend time with both of their parents "whenever they want," the insider adds.

Another source tells Us that Paltrow's famous mom, Blythe Danner, was on hand to help the Coldplay frontman move in; the new abode, which was purchased for $6.75 million and boasts 5 bedrooms and 7 baths, was also the site of Paltrow's 42nd birthday fete on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Held in the courtyard of the 7,700-square-foot home, the Martin-hosted bash welcomed celebrity guests Danner, Kate Hudson, Nicole Richie, Tobey Maguire and wife Jen Meyer, Maya Rudolph, and Gavin Rossdale, among others.

With the courtyard decorated with hanging strands of white lights, revelers feasted on dinner served at long rectangular tables. "Everyone was seated facing each other so they could talk and tell stories," the source says of the intimate setup. "They were all laughing together… Gwyneth was surrounded by girlfriends and couldn't stop giggling," the source tells Us, adding, at one point, the Goop founder was "yelling because she was laughing so hard."

Absent from the bash, however, was Martin's girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence — but there's no ill will. "Gwyneth is fine with Chris dating Jennifer," a source previously told Us.
