First comes love, then comes a love nest for rapper Wiz Khalifa and his fiance, Amber Rose. The couple is reportedly cozying up in a 3,891 square-foot mansion in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, near Khalifa's hometown of Pittsburgh, the Daily Mail reports.

According to Zillow.com, the five-bedroom, four-bath property features Brazilian Kos floors and stainless steal appliances, and sits on 2.8 acres of land.

Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz, proposed to Rose, who formerly dated Kanye West, earlier this month. The couple then took to Twitter to express their excitement about the forthcoming nuptials.
