Taylor Swift buying a mansion in Rhode Island?


Taylor Swift sure seems to like it around here. You’ll recall that the superstar singer bought — and later sold — a seven-bedroom spread across the street from Ethel Kennedy’s place in Hyannis Port. (Swift purchased the place last summer for $4.6 million during her whirlwind romance with young Conor Kennedy, but unloaded the house when the couple broke up.) Now, according to our real estate sources in Rhode Island, she has her eye on the Harkness House, a sprawling mansion on the water in scenic Watch Hill. Swift, we’re told, has toured the 11,000-square-foot “cottage” and there’s no doubt the multimillionaire could swing the steep asking price, which might be north of $20 million. What’s strange is that the property was for sale several years ago, but is not being actively marketed at the moment.
