Gerard Butler is reportedly looking to move in with his on/off girlfriend Morgan Brown.

The 'Bounty Hunter' actor and the 41-year-old beauty are believed to have been busy eyeing up potential properties in the Chelsea area of New York over the weekend, including a 4,100-square-foot apartment at 236 West 26th Street, which they are weighing up whether they can style it with a ''rustic'' look.

A source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: ''Things are looking serious. Gerry sold his $6 million Chelsea loft last year and is looking for a bigger space to share with Morgan.

''They have visited a sprawling loft in Chelsea twice and are trying to determine if the home can be decorated in a more 'rustic' way compared to the sophisticated look that the current owners achieved.''

Last year, the 48-year-old actor sold his Chelsea loft apartment - which he described as ''bohemian old-world rustic chateau with a taste of baroque'' - for a reported $5.99 million.

The couple - who have been seeing each other on/off since 2014 - were believed to have split in August last year, after a ''make or break'' holiday to Mexico.

But in October, the '300' star said he was ready to start a family and settle down within the next few years.

Gerard - who has previously been romantically linked to the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Biel - said: ''I have no personal life. In five years I want to be in a relationship. I'd love to have one or two kids - it's about time.

''I want to be more run by my personal life than my career.''
