Just months before announcing their divorce, singer Joe Jonas and actress Sophie Turner had been in the process of purchasing a mansion. Despite their four-year marriage, the 34-year-old pop star and British-born actress Sophie were considering a move to Oxford, England, as revealed in documents obtained by UsWeekly, before ultimately filing for their "amicable" split.
The couple put down a 10 per cent deposit for the home, which is worth close to £7.5 million, according to the documents which are dated July 7.
In a letter dated June 16, Joe told the previous owners, "When my wife and I decided we were going to spend more time in the UK and search for a permanent home, our daughter expressed three unwavering requirements, having chickens, a pony, and a Wendy house."
"Well, many of the houses we viewed met this criteria, the moment we turned the corner and caught sight of the charming blue shutters adorning (this home), we experienced a sense of magic, unlike anything we had felt before."
The 'Burnin' Up' hitmaker went on to describe the property as "simply heavenly" and said he was "completely charmed by the idea of dropping my children to school" as he said that he and his wife were expecting to make the lavish property their "forever" home.
He said: "It was simply heavenly! My father-in-law is an incredibly keen gardener, and he was suitably impressed by your vegetable garden too, a very important sign off!”
“We could tell that your family have truly loved living here and we can envision our children growing up here and making this our forever home. I really think Sophie and I will be able to look after… and for many many years pay homage to the magic you have created here." Earlier this month, in a joint statement, Joe and Sophie took to social media to explain that they had decided to end their marriage and asked for privacy amid their split.
