Edward Christopher Sheeran is a singer, guitarist, songwriter, and record producer from the United Kingdom. Sheeran’s introduction into the music industry came in early 2011 when he independently released his first EP No. 5 Collaborations Project. Following this, he would go on to sign a recording contract with Asylum Records and release his debut album + (aka “plus”) later that year. His debut went on to top Australian and UK music charts as well as reach #5 in the United States. Sheeran would go on to make several other highly successful albums and is currently one of the wealthiest and globally popular singers in the music world. In addition to being a mega-famous musician, Ed Sheeran house collection is ever-growing, with a massive property portfolio that you’ll have to see to believe (seriously the guy has a mini village! No joke). Keep reading for more on Sheeran and his real estate empire!
Where Does Ed Sheeran Live?
Ed Sheeran owns over 22 different properties, but he mainly spends his spare time at his massive estate in Framlingham, Suffolk, in the UK. More about Ed Sheeran’s house, also known as “Sheeran Ville,” below!
Ed Sheeran House Suffolk
Have you ever heard the saying “it takes a village to raise a child?” Well, apparently it also takes a literal village to house Ed Sheeran, because that’s exactly what he has in Framlingham, Suffolk. The singer originally purchased the 16th-century Wynneys farmhouse for $1.1 million back in June 2012, and then proceeded to snap up most of the neighboring buildings for an additional $4.9 million. Some of the properties that Sheeran added to his massive estate include the Chestnuts bungalow for $694k, Sunnyside house for $1.22 million, The Poplars for $1.16 million, and Wynneys Hall for $1.1 million.
Ed Sheeran home features a wildlife pond to attract wildlife (or possibly a secret swimming pool), a fully functioning pub, a gym, a Victorian-style greenhouse, kitchen garden, a cherry orchard, a treehouse, and a chicken coop as well as enough farmland to house 2 sheep and two goats. According to public documents, Sheeran is working on building an underground man cave that features a cinema and music room, and even an underground tunnel that connects from his main residence to the Lancaster Lock Pub (the private drinking establishment that he named in honor of his wife Cherry Seaborn).

Ed Sheeran House Notting Hill
Adding to his already massive real estate empire, Sheeran purchased a mansion in London for a whopping $26.2 million in Notting Hill. Not many details regarding the property are available to the public, but what is known is that the previous owner made quite the profit on the residence when they sold it to Sheeran since the last purchase prior to him was only $12.6 million in 2016.
The 8,300 square foot mansion boasts 8-bedrooms, a theater, bar, staff bedroom, and swimming pool. The property sits at the end of a close and offers lots of privacy for Sheeran and fam. In addition to owning a posh mansion in the neighborhood, Sheeran also threw down $5.3 million more in 2018 on two neighboring houses as well as a flat above his Notting Hill restaurant after concerns arose that neighbors were complaining of noisy parties (guess that’s one way to resolve the issue).
Ed Sheeran Lego House Song
Written by Sheeran, Chris Leonard, and Jake Gosling, “Lego House” was released back in November of 2011 and was the first song by Sheeran to make it to the BBC Radio 2 playlist. The tune became so popular that it reached the top 5 on Ireland, Australia, UK, and New Zealand music charts as well as the top 50 in the US.
The original video for the song, shot at the University of Hertfordshire, featured Harry Potter star Rupert Grint and was released on Sheeran’s YouTube channel in October 2011. In 2013, however, another Lego-rific version of the video was published on The Warner Sound’s YouTube page, with the entire original video recreated entirely in Lego blocks.
Ed Sheeran Game of Thrones
Much to the surprise of fans, the 7th season of Game of Thrones featured a small but memorably cheesy cameo of Ed Sheeran as a musically talented Lannister knight that crosses paths with Maisie William’s character Arya Stark in the forest. During his brief appearance, Sheeran sings a song from A Song of Fire and Ice, the book series that the show is based on.
Despite how slightly cringy the cameo was, according to fans of the series (and admittedly it was a bit corny), the moment was actually sort of sweet when you realize that his appearance was a surprise for Maisie Williams by the showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, who knew Williams was huge fan of Sheeran.
Ed Sheeran Net Worth
So, how much is Ed Sheeran worth? As if his real estate portfolio wasn’t a testament enough to how deep Sheeran’s pockets go these days, his net worth as of 2019 is estimated to be a staggering $160 million, making him one of the top 100 wealthiest singers in the world.
Ed Sheeran Family
Sheeran comes from a respectable family of art enthusiasts and music lovers, all of whom encouraged Ed to follow his dreams as a musician (which was a pretty good idea considering the outcome!). Below is an introduction to the Sheeran family.
Ed Sheeran Fiance / Ed Sheeran Wife
Ed Sheeran first met his lady love, Cherry Seaborn, while the two were attending Thomas Mills High School. Sheeran has admitted that he had a major crush on Seaborn while the two were classmates, but the two wouldn’t end up pursuing a relationship until later in 2015 when they crossed paths while Seaborn was working in Wall Street.
The couple would eventually get engaged and marry in 2018. Two of Sheeran’s hit songs “Shape of You” and “Perfect” are inspired by Seaborn.
Ed Sheeran Parents
Ed’s father, John Sheeran, is a former curator for the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London as well as an art lecturer. Though he retired in 2017, he still occasionally gives charity lectures. He is one of the key figures in Ed’s life that first introduced him to music.
Imogen Sheeran, Ed’s mother, is a respected jewelry designer that’s provided unique pieces to some pretty big names, including the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Imogen even created a special line dedicated to her son. She is also credited for encouraging Ed’s love of music.
As a show of appreciation for everything his parents have done for him, Ed Sheeran had a massive swimming pool built at his parents’ house recently.
Ed Sheeran Brother
Ed Sheeran has one sibling, a brother by the name of Matthew Sheeran. Much like his younger brother, Matthew Sheeran has dedicated his life to music – he is a composer and is classically trained in both viola and violin.
Ed Sheeran Hometown
Ed Sheeran was born in Halifax, West Yorkshire, but moved to Framlingham Suffolk with his family when he was young. It was in Framlingham where Sheeran grew up and discovered his musical talent and where he still resides today.
