Sometimes you really can have too much money. Case in point: Serial home-buyer Taylor Swift once again is looking to snatch up pricey property, allegedly to be near (stalk?) another man in her long list of rumored beaus.
The latest reports say the 25-year-old songstress is eyeing a listed castle—yes, a castle—in Scotland, close to the Edinburgh base of boyfriend and celebrity DJ Calvin Harris. Specifically, it’s the $7.16 million Tower of Lethendy, which dates back to 1570 and is located about a 90-minute drive north of the city.
Set on 40 acres, the castle has eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The grounds also include two gate lodges, two staff cottages, an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts and a heated pool.

Pop icon/aspiring stand-up-comic Madonna sold her famed 9 bedroom estate on Sunset Boulevard a year and a half ago, to a private equity investor, for $19.5 million, but just last month it came back onto the market with the same exact listing information as before, but a hefty new pricetag: $27.995 million (close to what she had first reportedly asked for the place for back in 2012).
Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts is putting her New York City apartment on the market. Located in picturesque Greenwich Village, the 2,000-square-foot pad is listed for $4.5 million. With plenty of outdoor living space, this outpost provides a serene respite from life in the Big Apple.
Life-size contemporary art hugs the wall in the apartment's casual entryway.
A clever wall partition separates the foyer from the living room while still allowing for an open-air floor plan.
A stately fireplace and decorated mantle is flanked by two sliding glass doors, offering plenty of natural light to the main living space.
A natural sisal rug and crisp white upholstered furniture brings an airy vibe to city living.
The apartment's kitchen is outfitted with sleek stainless steel appliances and classic black-and-white-tile floors.
Just off the kitchen, a sizable dining nook enjoys corner views of the city.
A smaller, cozier sitting area near the main living space features a sleek leather sectional sofa and a glass coffee table.
A third sliding-glass door provides access to the home's expansive terrace.
Three bedrooms and three bathrooms make up the 2,000-square-foot apartment.
Circular outdoor furniture and potted plants are situated in one corner of the 50-foot-long terrace.
Alfresco dinners are a must thanks to an outdoor dining table for six with uninterrupted views of downtown Manhattan.
With plenty of square footage and seating available, the apartment's outdoor living space is ideal for warm-weather entertaining.

Real Madrid soccer—sorry, football—player and international heartthrob Cristiano Ronaldo has scored a three-bedroom condo in Midtown, the Post reports. Ronaldo laid down $18.5 million for the 2,509-square-foot three-bedroom pad at 721 Fifth Avenue, the esteemed Trump Tower where gratuitous amounts of wood paneling and veined marble are the norm. The apartment is adding fuel to the fire that Ronaldo is looking to sign on a MLS team when his Real Madrid contract expires in 2018. Before Rinaldo signed on the pad on Wednesday, it belonged to Italian real estate mogul Alessandro Proto.
