British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran has been buying new properties in order to stop his neighbours moaning about the noise.
According to reports this week, the pop star has spent £4 million on two houses next door to his mansion in Suffolk after locals wouldn’t stop complaining about noises and parties around the area.
Ed Sheeran has also snapped up the flat above his restaurant in Notting Hill, and now reportedly owbs a total of 22 properties, valuated at £47 million approximately.
“Ed’s had neighbours grumbling about noise before so when he got a chance to buy up the two houses next to his London home, he jumped at the chance”, an anonymous source told reporters. “He has also decided to buy the flat above his restaurant because that could have been a massive sticking point for the business going forward”.
Before buying these three new properties, the 28-year-old and his wife Cherry Seaborn had been dealing with other neighbours’ complaints about his £500,000 pond. The locals were worried because it seemed like the singer was using it as a swimming pool.
The District Council gave Ed a permission to build on the pond, but it had to remain as a natural habitat to attract wildlife. Right after, he tried to remove the condition, pleading that the condition wasn’t necessary and it was totally unreasonable.
Back in 2017, they also faced complaints after he bought a historical farmhouse and converted it into his own drinking establishment called The Lancaster Lock. Locals wanted the signs announcing the bar to be removed, but last month Ed won the battle, as he got the right to keep the plaque.
