One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson + Harry Styles Put Flat Up for Rent
If you ever wondered where One Direction members Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles lay their heads at night, shower and hang out, take a peep inside their bachelor pad! The roomies recently put their three-bedroom flat back on the market, and if you can dish out the 5,000 pounds (that’s upwards of $8K for us Americans), you can rent the same space where the 1D duo lived in.
The ornately decorated apartment has five floors, sits on five acres of land, and is located in the Friern Barnet area of London. It’s even nicknamed “the dome”! According to real estate site Zoopla, the BFFs from One Direction (who are often referred to as Larry Stylinson by Directioners) were living it up in the plush flat, which boasts a “sports gym, private minibus and gated access with 24 hour security.”
As if the idea of your own private gym and minibus didn’t sound like enough, the top floor of the dome has a private movie theater, a 360 degree kitchen and a swimming pool. However, there is one drawback. While Louis and Harry’s fellow One Direction members Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Niall Horan also lived in the building, it is actually the former Victorian Institution the Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum (via Daily Mail), which is needless to say, pretty creepy. Especially after knowing that one of the Jack the Ripper suspects, Aaron Kosminiski, was a former resident.
In early 2012, the Daily Star reported that “Harry and Louis are living the life of luxury and loving every single minute.” The inside went on to say, “They had a wild bash with Louis hiring a coach to bring his old school chums. Harry was telling everyone he’s fallen head over heels for the flat, and loved the fact Ashley Cole used to live there. Most lads dream of lording around a footballer’s pad, so Harry and Louis have earned bragging rights.”
The flat will be up for grabs in May 2012, according to the listing on Zoopla… But we have a hunch that most of the people reading this won’t be packing their suitcases and moving into the crazy expensive living quarters any time soon.
