Ed Sheeran ends neighbours’ nagging by buying their houses
Ed Sheeran has been working on building himself a mini-village after buying up a fourth house next to his farmhouse – which also gets rid of the problem of his neighbour complaining about his building works.
The Cross Me star, whose new album No. 6 Collaborations Project went to number one without promo, initially bought his £895,000 farmhouse in Framlingham, Suffolk in 2012 and has spent a total of £3.7 million buying up properties around his home… which means he’s also dropped over £350k on stamp duty too. Yikes.
He bought another Grade II listed house next door for £450,000 also in 2012, a £925,000 detached house in front of his own in 2016 and a bungalow on the other side of his drive for £525,000 in 2017.
The newest house had belonged to his neighbour, Sharon Jenk, who had complained about the building works going on over at Casa Sheeran.
He purchased the house in April after the neighbour had objected to his plans to build a tree house and a 32ft chapel in the grounds of his home.
Ed, whose net worth is estimated to be a huge £160 million as of 2019, had already installed a pub and a ‘wildlife pond’, which neighbours claim is actually a swimming pool in disguise – something he recently fenced off with a bunch of hay bales.
The singer, 28, chose Framlingham to make his home after growing up in Suffolk, and meeting his wife, Cherry Seaborn, at school there.
