boots like uggs Ed Sheeran purchases two more houses next to mansion
The hitmaker, who announced his engagement to sweetheart Cherry Seaborn last weekend, has bought four homes next door to each other to create his own country estate.MailOnline revealed exclusively yesterday how Sheeran, 26, is building an underground ‘man cave’ featuring a music room and cinema beneath the grounds of his main farmhouse.Sheeran already has a giant treehouse, a trendy pod and a hot tub installed in his main garden, along with a covered swimming pool and a barn converted into his own pub complete with urinals and a choice of beer.Locals have now dubbed the area where he lives as ‘Sheeran ville’ because he owns so much property there.One villager, who asked not to be named, said: ‘Ed is a super guy and really friendly. He is just a down to earth Suffolk boy at heart so who can blame him for wanting to settle down here? It is a lovely part of the world.Pictured from above: It comes as no surprise then that locals have dubbed Ed’s collection of properties ‘Sheeran ville’ as he appears to be buying up the whole road’He has bought all the properties next door. I guess it means that there is nobody to complain if he plays his music too loudly.’Sheeran has a team of builders who have been busy renovating his houses and outbuildings which overlook open fields and rambling countryside.His clutch of homes are all on the outskirts of a village in Suffolk, where he grew up with his family.Sheeran first met Cherry, 25, at school there and he has often spoken of his love for Suffolk and his desire to put down roots in the rural county.Land Registry records disclose that he first bought his large modern detached farmhouse and surrounding land for 895,000 in June 2012 (tab 1)At the same time he also snapped up the 16th century Grade Two listed house next door for 450,000, (tab 2)Sheeran then started his programme of extensive improvement at his house. His most striking addition was his tree house complex, (also tab 2) made up of three interconnected timber huts with conical roofs on a raised platform.He also added the 26ft by 26ft ‘pod’ in his garden which has been described by locals as ‘a Hobbit Hole’.The singer seemed to make himself at home so much that he bought the four bedroom detached house in front of his farmhouse in September 2016. (tabs 3 and 4)Land Registry records show that he paid 925,000 for the house when it had only been sold for 330,000 in 2005, suggesting that he may have paid over the odds to secure the sale.The former owner of the house who is now living in London refused to comment when contacted by MailOnline on Tuesday. She would only say: ‘I don’t want to say anything.’The title deeds for the house name Sheeran as the current owner and give his address as being that of his specialist music and entertainment accountants Hardwick Morris in Great Portland Street, London, and care of his lawyers in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.Lego House hitmaker Sheeran was granted listed building consent by Suffolk Coastal District Council for the plans for the barn last SeptemberSheeran splashed out again on his fourth purchase as recently as last October when he bought the bungalow on the other side of his driveway for 525,000.Teams of builders appeared to be hard at work on his properties this week and a digger was visible in the grounds of his main farmhouse, although most of his land is hidden by high fencing and gates.Planning documents reveal how Sheeran’s latest project is to have two underground entertainment rooms a cinema and music room directly connected to his main house by a six foot wide tunnel.Another set of stairs will link the underground zone to the barn which he has converted into his own private pub. Plans show that his cinema will measure around 35ft by 20ft and his music room will be 25ft by 18ft.The eight foot high rooms and an adjoining toilet will partly extend under the singer’s existing barn and are accessed by a tunnel entrance from a new orangery extension on his farmhouse.
