Emma Watson is looking for an apartment in New York.

The 23-year-old actress reportedly has her eye on a lavish pad in an upmarket region of Manhattan, as she was spotted viewing properties in the area on Monday (20.01.14).

It seems money is no object for the former 'Harry Potter' star either, as she was looking at homes within a new building at 150 East 72nd Street, which has apartments priced up to $15 million, reports the New York Post newspaper.

The British beauty had previously looked at buying a New York home two years ago, and was said to have been considering splashing out on a $3.3 million penthouse near Central Park.

Emma - who is dating Oxford University rugby star Matthew Janney

- is currently studying her final year of an English degree at Brown University in Rhode Island.

The actress initially enrolled at Brown in 2010 but later dropped out to film the last Harry Potter film 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2'.

She then transferred to Oxford University the following year but had to put her studies on hold when she was cast in 'The Perks Of Being A Wallflower'.

Now that Emma is in her final year at Brown, she reportedly turned down a string of film roles earlier this month in order to focus on her upcoming university exams in May.

A source said recently: ''Emma is in demand with Hollywood directors but has so much to focus on with her studies, that she has had to pass on a few things - she simply can't do everything.''
