Taylor Swift Lays Down Roots Near Kennedy Compound

T-Swift is putting the “love” in “love shack.”

The “Love Story” singer dropped some serious cash on a home in Barnstable, Massachusetts. Not-so-coincidentally-so, Taylor’s brand new Cape Cod estate is across the street from the Kennedy compound where her new boyfriend Conor Kennedy has been known to roam.

Swift’s new pad is a far cry from what she grew up around in Pennsylvania and Texas. Set right on the New England coast, the mansion overlooks the Nantucket Sound and is fitted with traditional Cape Cod siding and décor.

According to Zillow Blog, the purchase set the country singer back a $4.9 million, which is a bargain as the house was listed at $13.5 million just two years ago.

The 4,400 square foot house has 7 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. It was built in 1928 and boasts spanning wood floors, multiple fireplaces, and 1.1 acres of land. On that impressive plot is a private beach where her and Conor can frolic hand-in-hand along whenever they so please.

Though it’s her first home purchase on the East Coast, this is T-Swift’s third home. She owns a $2.5 million pad in Nashville and one in Beverly Hills that she bought last April for just under $4 million.

Taylor and Conor were made “official” just last week when the singer introduced her new love to her parents Andrea and Scott. At 22, she started dating her stud when he was just 17…

Hey, every cougar’s got to start somewhere, right?
