Going to Rhode Island this summer may include some new star gazing for those headed to Misquamicut!

Pop star Taylor Swift has apparently purchased an 11,000-square-foot mansion in the tony Watch Hill neighborhood in Westerly, Rhode Island.

Reports from Huffington Post and other publications including The New York Daily News are that the 23-year-old celeb paid $17.75 million for the waterfront mansion known as ‘The Harkness House.’

Once the summer home of Mrs. William Hale Harkness, the seaside retreat is located near the landmark Ocean House. On an application for its nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, the mansion is described as a large 2½- to 3½-story white clapboard dwelling, hybrid French Provincial with English Regency style.

Built in 1930, it overlooks Block Island Sound and Little Narragansett Bay.
