Ed Sheeran hasn't been shy about wishing he could have New Zealand citizenship.
But the 'Shape of You' singer, currently in NZ, is one step closer to being permanently based in NZ after he reportedly bought up a large section of land in the town of Gore.
The South Island town has been seen as an unlikely choice of destination, however the famous British redhead was said to be quite taken to the location.
A real estate agent who didn't want to be named said Ed specifically looked for a "Kiwi Lifestyle Block" in "less populated" areas.
"A getaway location where he and his new family could be free and away from public eye," said the source.
The 26-year-old, who is building his own chapel for his upcoming wedding, is said to be using the same architects to construct his new home.
