Keira Knightley has started hunting for a country home in Johnny Depp's neighbourhood.

The 27-year-old actress is following in her 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' co-star's footsteps and searching for the perfect house away from London in England's Norfolk countryside.

According to The Sun newspaper, she has been spotted looking at estate agent details in a tea room close to where Johnny - who also has homes in France and Los Angeles - bought his 13-bedroom mansion last year to use as his UK base.

Keira - who is worth in the region of £30million according to the Sunday Times Rich List - already has a £2million house in east London which she splashed out on following her split from long-term boyfriend Rupert Friend in December 2010.

She is believed to have moved current beau, Klaxons rocker James Righton - who she met through mutual friend Alexa Chung in February 2011 - in to the 13th Century home in February.

A source said: ''Keira suggested the idea and he moved his stuff in a couple of weeks ago. They want to get a puppy. It's all pretty serious.''
