One Direction look to buy Ashley Cole’s flash penthouse!
They’re heartthrobs for teenage girls (and some older too) around the country, and now it seems the One Direction boys are looking to buy a property that reflects their celebrity status.
Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson allegedly have their eyes set on a luxury flat in North London once lived in by Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole. The pair currently rent the pad for a rumoured £3,000 a week but it’s been reported that they are hoping to buy the apartment for £3million.
The Friern Barnet penthouse is part of Princess Manor Park which has been a hit with celebrities over the years… Girls Aloud once called the development home and the rest of 1D currently live in the block – we’ve heard rumours that the boyband held a “crazy” house party on NYE in the property (oh to be a fly on the wall!).
We found this apartment in Princess Manor Park… could this be the flat they’re after?
The deluxe apartment is part of a period listed building, originally built in 1850, that sits on 30 acres of land with easy access into London. The designer development comes with all of the mod-cons and amenities you’d expect; a swimming pool, health and fitness centre, hair parlour, tennis courts, club and restaurant are all contained in a highly secure residence with electronically controlled gates – perfect for keeping out all of those screaming fans!
