Robert Pattinson is buying a house in Brooklyn.

The 28-year-old actor has been splitting his time between his native London, California and New York City and now wants to settle on the East Coast and already has his eye on a lavish new home.

The 'Bel Ami' star - who is dating British singer FKA Twigs - is said to be looking to buy a four-bedroom, three-bathroom townhouse in the Vinegar Hill area.

The property, which was built in 1925, boasts stunning exposed brick interiors, a classic fireplace, a spacious modern kitchen, multi-car garage and outdoor space.

A source told US Weekly magazine: ''He doesn't want to be bothered by people constantly but he also doesn't want to away from all the fun of the city.''

A listing agent for the property told the publication the house is currently still on the market but they have had a contract out with one potential buyer ''for a while now.''

As well as looking for a New York property, the 'Twilight' star recently bought a new home in Los Angeles and has sparked rumours he has moved in with his girlfriend of three months after they were spotted shopping for furniture together at the weekend.

Robert and the 26-year-old singer - whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett - visited numerous stores around Los Angeles over the weekend to furnish the house in the hills, visiting the Rose Bowl Flea Market and JF Chen's antique furniture store to peruse the options available to give the pad a vintage feel.
