Cheryl Cole is considering buying a $5.5million Los Angeles mansion.

The Girls Aloud singer was spotted viewing the six bedroom, four bathroom 6,000 sq ft luxury home overlooking Beverly Hills "in the dark of the night" with her assistant and a real estate agent, according to MailOnline.

The three-storey home features several balconies which will allow the 'Promise This' singer to enjoy the stunning views of the city, a swimming pool, a large games room and multiple dining areas.

It is thought Cheryl is planning to trade up after splashing out on a $3.5 million luxury apartment in Beverly Hills in March.

The property, which is part of the 42-storey Century building, has four acres of private gardens, boasts an in-built cinema, private 74ft pool, wine cellar and is protected by 24-hour security.

The palatial building overlooks the infamous Avenue of the Stars in one of the most prestigious addresses in Hollywood was originally part of a Five Star hotel.

A local estate agent said: "Cheryl has great taste. She is moving into the most prestigious address in the whole of Los Angeles."
