Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy buy £4m home
Monday 28 February 2011
Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy have purchased a £4 million home in the UK.
The couple - who are currently expecting their first child - have reportedly purchased a property in North London after the 31-year-old actress decided the UK would be a "great place" to raise a family.
An insider explained: "Kate is ready to put down roots in the UK. She is in the process of filling out visa forms that will enable her to live in England with Matt for at least six months of the year.
"Kate looks at the UK as a great place to raise a family. She sees herself living and working from London for the long haul."
The pair are hoping to move into the property, which comes complete with a nursery, games room and guest rooms, as soon as renovations are complete, and are also looking at holiday homes in Cornwall near the 32-year-old rocker's parents' house in Devon, South West England.
Matt and Kate - who also has a seven-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson - are said to be so ecstatic about their new home that they have already taken Kate's Hollywood legend mother Goldie Hawn and stepdad Kurt Russell to look around the area.
The source added to the Mail on Sunday newspaper: "Matt and Kate have shown Goldie and Kurt around the area and Matt took them all to Devon to meet his parents. They also looked around Cornwall for a holiday home."
However, Kate recently admitted she was "unsure" about moving to the UK on a permanent basis.
She said: "I'll obviously be spending a lot more time in London bit I'm not sure about moving - not yet! We'll probably split it 50/50 - I do love it here and surprisingly I do love the weather. It's so nice to have seasons."
