His luxurious abode comfortably accommodates eight bedrooms, a theater, a bar, a staff room and a swimming pool.

However, it is still no match for the famous £3.7m estate in Suffolk, nicknamed ‘Sheeranville’ by locals due to its impressive size and stature.

Under construction: Ed Sheeran has decided to renovate his £20m mansion in West London, but the singer, who boasts a property portfolio consisting of 27 apartments, townhouses and mansions, will not be short of other properties to stay .

After moving into a Grade II-listed farmhouse in his hometown in 2012, Sheeran, 31, bought four other houses and he had a pub, a swimming pool and a tree house built.

He is also said to be becoming self-sufficient on his sprawling 16-acre Suffolk lot, by setting up a beehive on the edge of his property, where he can make his own honey, as well as grow vegetables, own an orchard and raise livestock.

However, it is in the capital that he owns the most property, and in 2020 he was reported to have spent a further £10m on the London property marker.

The global pop star, who hit the Sunday Times rich list in May with an estimated net worth of £260m, now has enough property to fill a Monopoly board.

Five assets in the capital were incorporated into Sheeran’s vast ‘Edopoly’ real estate empire, bringing the number he owns in London to 22.

His latest additions include two properties on Floral Street in Covent Garden and a couple of flats at the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home on Palmer Road.

These four houses alone are believed to be among the most expensive, with conservative estimates putting them at a total value of £9 million.

A source told The Sun: “The amount of money he has invested in property is staggering, but it is a drop in the ocean compared to the £600m he made from his Divide Tour.” And it certainly is a shrewd move to invest in property in the capital.’

Sheeran also owns five apartments at Wiverton Tower in Whitechapel valued at £3.9 million and a Holland Park mansion valued at almost £20 million.

The Shape of You singer has four other properties in Holland Park valued at £11m, and a trendy restaurant on Portobello Road called Bertie Blossoms that is soon to be converted into a pub.

MailOnline previously reported that Sheeran bought several properties in Notting Hill to avoid complaints about “loud music and parties”.

The star is said to have used his financial position to his advantage when he snapped up the properties, building his empire without relying on any bank loans and paying cash, leaving him mortgage-free.

In addition to investing in many properties, the singer is said to have invited his family to have their own house.

In 2015, the Lego House hitmaker revealed that he had bought from his parents. John and Imogen a house in London so they could be close when he and his wife Cherry Seaborn started a family.

He explained at the time: “When I have children, when they start to get a little irritated, I have the grandparents there.”

The couple are now the proud parents of daughter Lyra Antartica, two, and Jupiter Seaborn, five months.

Sheeran’s construction job comes after it was revealed that he He is due to face trial in the US over claims that he copied his 2014 smash hit ‘Thinking Out Loud’ from Marvin Gaye’s 1973 classic ‘Let’s Get It On’.

US District Judge Louis Stanton in Manhattan denied Sheeran’s attempt to dismiss the copyright infringement suit, saying a jury should decide whether the two songs are substantially similar.

‘Edopoly’: The singer’s incredible £57m real estate empire

Ed Sheeran has amassed a staggering 27 properties since 2012, both in and out of London:. To date, his portfolio includes:

  • ‘Sheeranville’ Estate (£3.7m)
  • A mansion in Holland Park (£19.8m)
  • Two floors in Covent Garden (£7.36m)
  • Three in Battersea (£1.72m)
  • Five apartments at Wiverton Tower in Whitechapel (£3.9m)
  • Three estates on Findon Road in Hammersmith (£1.76m)
  • Four other assets in Holland Park, Kensington (£11.25m)
  • Three on Portobello Road (£2.64m)
  • Two in Chiswick (£3.68m)

The move comes after Sheeran and his co-writers were awarded more than £900,000 in legal costs in June after winning their UK High Court copyright lawsuit over the hit Shape of Year in March.

Following that ruling six months ago, Sheeran lashed out at the ‘unsubstantiated claims’ that have been made against singer-songwriters.

Last month, Judge Stanton said Sheeran must now face trial in the US amid claims Thinking Out Loud is a copy of Gaye’s Let’s Get It On.

The copyright infringement lawsuit was originally filed in 2018, not by Gaye’s family, but by Structured Asset Sales LLC, which owns a portion of “Let’s Get It On” co-writer Ed Townsend’s estate.

Structured Asset Sales (SAS) is seeking $100 million in damages alleging that Sheeran and his co-writer Amy Wadge “copied and exploited, without authorization or credit” Gaye’s song, “including but not limited to the melody, rhythms, harmonies , drums, bass line, backing choir, tempo, syncopation and looping’.

Gaye co-wrote Let’s Get It On with Edward Townsend, an American singer-songwriter who died in 2003.

They released the song in June 1973 and it reached number 1 in September of that year. More than 10 years later, Gaye was shot and killed by his father, Marvin Gay Senior, whose last name is spelled differently, at their home in Hancock Park, Los Angeles, after an argument on April 1, 1984, the day before of his 45th birthday. birthday.

Judge Stanton said a jury must decide whether the two songs are substantially similar because music experts on both sides of the dispute disagree whether Sheeran’s song mimics “Let’s Get It On.”

“Although the two musical compositions are not identical, a jury could find that the overlap between the songs’ combination of chord progression and harmonic rhythm is very close,” Stanton said.

A lawyer for Structured Asset Sales, Hillel Parness, told Reuters the company is “satisfied” with the ruling.

meIn his order, Stanton also ruled that jurors must decide whether SAS can include concert proceeds in damages, rejecting Sheeran’s argument that ticket sales were not linked to the alleged infringement.

Sheeran’s 2014-2015 tour generated $150 million in gross receipts, according to music industry trade publication Pollstar.

A similar lawsuit against Sheeran by SAS is currently on hold, and a separate lawsuit brought by another part of Townsend’s estate is awaiting trial.
