Having spent time living in New York, Los Angeles and of course, his home country of England, Harry Styles has accumulated an incredible roster of jaw-dropping real estate throughout his career.

Harry Edward Styles was born on 1 February 1994 in the town of Redditch, in Worcestershire, UK. The family moved to Holmes Chapel in Cheshire, and when he was seven years old, his parents, Anne and Desmond divorced. As a child, Styles recorded covers on a karaoke machine that he’d received as a gift, with the first song being Elvis Presley’s ‘The Girl of My Best Friend’. The King of Rock and Roll would go on to have a huge influence on Styles’ glittering music career.

Harry and his family reportedly lived in this humble two-bedroom home in the small village of Holmes Chapel, which was available to rent for $986 (£850) per month in 2013. It boasts a ground-floor extension with an open-plan eat-in kitchen and living room, with bi-folding doors that lead out into the small garden.

Before he invested in any property, Harry Styles rented out a bachelor pad in North London with his new bandmates after they had finished their time on The X Factor. Just at the start of their fame, the group reportedly rented out a glamorous five-floor unit in the 19th-century building, which was once an asylum, but eventually moved into their own units.
