The former One Direction star is looking for a new home to get away from it all and be at one with nature on England’s southwest coast after falling in love with the county
Harry Styles is preparing to invest part of his vast fortune in a multi-million pound house in Cornwall after falling in love with the south west English county.
The 27-year-old former One Direction star is said to be worth an estimated £75million and is willing to set aside a significant chunk of that money to find her dream home.
Harry is from Redditch, in northeast Worcestershire and between the cities of Birmingham and London – but grew up in Cheshire before rising to fame on The X Factor as a teenager.
But now the star is looking her way through property options in Cornwall after apparently spending time at the Penzance Artists Residence during a winter holiday break.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: “Harry loves Cornwall and thinks it’s beautiful. He loves the rugged nature of the landscape and loves connecting with nature.
“He is keen to put a bolthole there and would like to buy a house near the water.
“He’s willing to spend up to £10m on the right property.”
Harry is believed to already have an impressive portfolio of properties – with homes in Los Angeles, New York and the UK capital.
One guest likely to have AAA passes to all of Harry’s properties – including any new ones he buys in Cornwall – is his 37-year-old girlfriend Olivia Wilde.
Last month, it was reported that Harry had introduced Olivia to his beloved mother, Anne – sparking further speculation that the singer could soon pop the question to the American actress.
A source close to the pair at the time said: “It looked like a showbiz thing at first, two glamorous people hooking up but now it’s obviously much more than that.
“They held back a bit at first, but now that things are more settled, it was time to do the next thing.
“It’s really exciting for them – and for Harry, the most serious he’s ever been about anyone.”
And it has also been reported that Harry has grown close to Olivia’s two children, a one-year-old son named Otis and a five-year-old daughter named Daisy – who she shares with her 46-year-old ex-boyfriend , Jason Sudeikis.
Harry has been relatively tight-lipped about his current romance, Olivia gushed about the happiness she has experienced being linked to the singer.

She told Vogue: “It’s tempting to correct a false narrative. But I think what you realize is that when you’re really happy, it doesn’t matter what strangers think of you.
“All that matters to you is what’s real, what you love and who you love. Over the past 10 years, as a society, we have placed much more value on the opinions of strangers than that of the people closest to us.
“I’m happier than I’ve ever been. And I’m healthier than I’ve ever been, and it’s just wonderful to feel that.
