Harry Styles has reportedly bought a £2.6 million house in Los Angeles.
The One Direction star is apparently planning to spend more time in the U.S., and wanted somewhere permanent to stay.
This makes him the second band member to buy property in America, after Niall Horan bought a home in LA last year.
'Harry spent a couple of weeks last year looking at properties, before finally finding one he loved, and putting in an offer,' a source told UK newspaper The Mirror.
'Contracts have been exchanged and he is now a proud US home-owner. Harry's only told a few people and not many people know the exact location of the pad, but it is fairly spectacular, with an outdoor pool, home entertainment room and gym.'
The 20-year-old is said to love LA because he gets more privacy there. While England will apparently always be his main home, the star is looking forward to spending more time in California.
'Harry loves LA and feels really at home there. He also gets less hassled there because people are used to seeing A-listers all over the place,' the source added. 'He was actually due to return to London last week but is loving it so much he extended his trip. England will always be home, but he will be spending a lot more time in Los Angeles and Hollywood now.'
Harry is currently having a holiday in Los Angeles without the rest of his One Direction group. He has reportedly met with movie mogul Harvey Weinstein as well as other music industry heads.
