Los Angeles, Jan 21 (IANS) One Direction singer Niall Horan has splashed $1.5 million on a new home here. The house boasts of a swimming pool and games room, but builders refused to build a bar because he is under the legal drinking age in the US.
"The guarded community, where Niall lives when he is in LA is a good investment and it's packed with celebrity neighbours. As well as the Kardashians, other residents include Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne and Jennifer Lopez," thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
"Niall wanted a permanent place in the States because One Direction will be spending a lot more time there this year and he didn't want to stay in a string of hotels," added the source.
The house could even spark a new career move for the 19-year-old.
He has befriended his young new neighbours, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, the daughters of Kris and Bruce Jenner, and the teenage sisters are keen for him to appear on their family reality TV show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians".
"He is made friends already with his Kardashian neighbours and the younger Kardashian sisters love him and his Irish accent," said the source.
