Ed Sheeran Buys Four Adjacent Homes Near His English Hometown
Ed Sheeran won big at the Grammy’s this weekend, but he’s also winning big in his personal life. The "Shape of You" singer recently announced that he and longtime girlfriend Cherry Seaborn are engaged to be married and he’s already working on creating their dream home (or rather, homes).
Sheeran has picked up four adjacent houses on the edge of a Suffolk county village in England. The musician grew up in the county in a town called Framlingham, which is pictured above. His charming hometown inspired the hit single "Castle on the Hill" and the music video for the tune was filmed throughout Suffolk. The Daily Mail reports that he first purchased a house in the area in 2012, which included a barn that he converted into his own personal pub, and has gradually acquired the surrounding properties resulting in the sizable compound locals are calling Sheeranville.
The singer may not have purchased the castle, but he’ll still be living like a king. Renovations have already begun, including new quirky features like underground tunnels connecting the different structures and a backyard tree house. Plans show that the country compound will also boast an underground cinema room and music room. With London just two hours away, Sheeran and his bride-to-be should look to the city's top designers and master artisans when furnishing their various homes. The Inaugural Holiday House London, of which NYC&G was the exclusive media sponsor, showcased designers' diverse styles and visions and is be the perfect resource for the couple as they navigate home decor.
