Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z have reportedly splashed out on a new house.
The newlyweds have purchased a home in Scarsdale, a quiet New York suburb close to where they got married last month. The colonial-style house has reportedly been under construction for six months and the 15,000 sq ft property is situated on two acres of land.
Quiet Scarsdale is very different from where the couple’s current home is – a penthouse apartment in New York’s trendy TriBeCa district. The first indicator that the couple were planning to marry came when they registered for a license in Scarsdale in April.
Shortly after applying for permission to wed, Beyonce and Jay-Z exchanged vows in a private ceremony at a chapel in Scarsdale Village. Reports then emerged that the former Destiny’s Child star may be pregnant.
Last year, Beyonce insisted she wouldn’t pressurise 38-year-old Jay-Z into having children, saying: “You can’t rush a man into anything whether it’s a relationship, marriage or having children. When he’s ready he’ll let you know.”
