Los Angeles - Matt LeBlanc is selling his Los Angeles home for $8.75m.

The former Friends actor has listed his Pacific Palisades estate, which he bought in 2007 for $7.4 million, according to Variety.

The Spanish-style four-bedroom villa sits on half an acre of land and features ''beamed ceilings, wood floors, original fixtures, ironwork and tiles'' throughout.

It doesn't have a pool but features stunning views over Santa Monica Canyon.

Matt has been renting out the property for almost $13k a month since 2012 and currently owns two homes in Encino along with a 1 000-plus-acre estate in the Santa Ynez Valley, near Santa Barbara.

Meanwhile, Matt, 48, recently admitted he only signed up to present Top Gear on the BBC because he needed a job.

The actor - who is best known for playing Joey Tribbiani in Friends for a decade - revealed he only took the job on the revamped motoring show because no other offers had cropped up at the time.

He explained: "My comedy Episodes was coming to an end and I needed a job. So I said: 'Why not?'"

Here the actor is with his former co-stars from the comedy:

And, although the car show wasn't something that was initially on his agenda, he's already proved a huge hit with viewers and is reportedly in talks with bosses to renew his contract for a second series next year.

An insider said previously: ''Matt came across really well, he can drive and certainly knows his motors. Matt is crucial to the success going forward.''

Roller in Ireland. Sweet.
