Report: Taylor Swift buys Watch Hill mansion for $18 million

Posted: Updated:
WESTERLY, R.I. -

Singer Taylor Swift has reportedly bought a mansion in Watch Hill.

The Providence Journal reported that a seaside mansion in the Westerly neighborhood sold on Friday for $17.75 million.

The celebrity website TMZ said singer Taylor Swift bought a home in the neighborhood this weekend and paid cash.

James Michelove, owner of Seaboard Properties, told the Journal that the home is well over 10,000 square feet, on an almost 6-acre lot that overlooks Block Island Sound and Little Narragansett Bay.

Michelove said a confidentiality agreement prevents him from saying who purchased the home, known as The Harkness House.

TMZ published photos of Swift touring the property earlier this month.
