Ed Sheeran intends to buy the owners of three houses on the edge of his £ 3.7m Suffolk estate because of their gardens encroaching on his land.
The 29-year-old singer, who owns a total of 27 properties worth £ 57m inside and outside London, has slowly accumulated the land around his Suffolk house and turned it into what has become known as "Sheeranville".
Around £ 200m worth – Ed owns five of the lots on the property, but the homeowners (of the remaining three houses) know that Ed will give them the best price if they choose to move on.
Expansion … again: Ed Sheeran wants to buy the owners of three houses (in the red box) that stand on the edge of his £ 3.7m Suffolk estate because their gardens encroach on his land – he owns everything the yellow box
Will offer the best price: A source said: "The houses are in the middle of Eds Land on the main street, so it will just freshen up if he can get his hands on all three in the coming years."
A source told The Sun: "The houses are in the middle of Eds Land on the main street. So everything will be refreshed if he gets his hands on all three in the coming years."
"The gardens of the houses protrude into the middle of the fields belonging to Ed, meaning that he has to travel the long way if he wants to visit a lake at the very edge of his property."
The publication claims that the houses in question are two bungalows and a larger property.
Ed has been building and expanding his property for five years and now has a pub, swimming pool and whirlpool, orchard, walled vegetable garden, greenhouses, underground cinema, gym, recording studio, wildlife pond and area for goats, sheep and chickens.)

Sheeranville is not without controversy that Ed has clashed with his neighbors in the past.
The star has been involved in several legal disputes over its rights and the rights of its neighbors to expand their respective land masses.
This year, Ed's neighbor Anthony Robinson won a fight against the superstar, who rejected Mr. Robinson's plans to expand his back garden.
Mr. Robinson, who lives three houses next to the pop star's estate, was given permission to make his garden 160 feet tall despite Ed's objection.
Mr. Robinson already owned the field behind his four bedroom, 550,000 pound house in the village of Dennington and wanted to incorporate some of it into his private garden.
But Ed, who had done his own major construction project only a few hundred feet away, didn't want the room to be domesticated.
He claimed it would "expand the village to the countryside in an unplanned and artificial way".
Although the council initially protested Mr. Robinson's proposal, many neighbors wrote to support him and his plans were eventually approved.
In June last year, the singer had to fight to keep the 16-foot pub sign that he had hung in front of a barn that had been converted into a drinking cave.
Even though he received permission to build the pub in 2017, he hadn't received approval for the sign, which made locals wonder why it was there.
Sheeran was also told that he could not swim in his wildlife pond after being given permission to build it on condition that it served as a natural habitat for frogs, newts and dragonflies.
The local council visited its property and explicitly prohibited "leisure activities such as swimming".
He was also forced to remove his outdoor sauna in a caravan by the pond after the neighbors complained.

Ed bought his first home on the site in 2012, a new building, for around £ 900,000.
The estate's latest expansion occurred in April when the star spent £ 875,000 to buy the house of neighbor Sharon Jest, who had previously opposed some of his plans. The price was significantly higher than for similar properties in the region.
Meanwhile, work on a Victorian-style greenhouse and vegetable garden, orchard, mini-paddock, and grove of American chewing gum trees is being monitored by Sue Townsend, a former BBC Blue Peter gardener.

- A Holland Park Villa (£ 19.8m)

Last year the singer received planning permission to build a place of worship in his garden that he had not yet built.
The new building was described in the registration as "new and modern", but should not conflict with the parish church of St. Mary.
This follows the news that Ed's sprawling estate, with nearly 47,000 searches a year, is the UK's most googled celebrity home.
The data collected in May show that the British visit the singer's 16-hectare village more than any other celebrity.
The data show that the British are most interested in Katie Price’s estate with 38,400 searches, and Kim Kardashian's house with 14,400 searches.
Ed was also the only Briton to be on another global top ten list where Kim Kardashian's house had the most searches worldwide with over 168,000 searches a year.
Data compiled by Ratedpeople.com states that Ed's estate is searched 80,400 times a year worldwide.
Ed did his part to help his community during the closure, and has reportedly donated more than £ 1 million to local Suffolk charities amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The generous donation was used for various charities in his home country, including the children's hospital in Ipswich.
Ed is reportedly enjoying the time he spends in isolation with his wife, taking care of their land and growing organic fruits and vegetables.
The Shape of You star has developed a passion for gardening during lockdown and has kept its chickens.
With so much space in the vast country, the musician supposedly plans to include sheep and goats in his cattle collection.
At the moment he likes to grow his own fruits and vegetables in the in-house greenhouse, including strawberries, spuds, lettuce and carrots.
