David Hasselhoff to buy Welsh home
Monday 01 August 2011
David Hasselhoff is planning to move to Wales.
The 59-year-old star has been house-hunting with girlfriend Hayley Roberts and the couple are said to have their eye on a £1.2 million house in Lisvane, on the outskirts of Cardiff, close to the former factory worker's home town of Glynneath.
The four-bedroom house has been designed by an award-winning architect. It is said to be the most expensive property in the village. Local estate agent David Ricketts, 46, said: "Mr. Hasselhoff has picked a great spot to look for an exclusive property. Lisvane is a typical British village with a pub, village hall and community spirit.
"I've lived there for 40 years and brought up three kids - he would have no problem doing the same with his Welsh young lady."
David has already been seen in the local pub, The Black Griffin, where he had a soft drink and talked with locals about his plans to have a home in Wales. He also visited a local school to watch an end-of-term production of musical 'West Side Story'.
David met Hayley in February at the Cardiff auditions of 'Britain's got Talent', the UK show in which he is a judge The former 'Baywatch' star - who celebrated his birthday last weekend in Las Vegas with Hayley - recently hinted he may marry the 31-year-old beauty. He said: "You have to keep the romance up, but we are just getting started. I loved being married and I have always been a one-woman man, despite what people say, and I like sharing success with people."
