Keira Knightley - Keira Knightley Celebrates Engagement By Splashing Millions On House

Keira Knightley has splashed out on a new luxury pad for her and her new fiance. The Daily Mail have reported today that the Pride & Prejudice star has bought a 2.4 million pound townhouse in the increasingly-popular Spitalfields area of East London and now counts Tracey Emin amongst her neighbours. Just last week, Keira announced that she and James Righton (of electro-pop band Klaxons) had got engaged.
Keira and James' new fancy love pad contains a cinema, a dressing room, a music room and a library. Perfect for the actress and musician couple, then. There is even a studio house in the garden, reportedly. Keira bought the house mortgage-free; that's something not be sniffed at, for someone at the tender age of 27. The property was purchased via the Chiswick-based company run by her mum, Sharman MACdonald. East London may have ben considered a no-go area for the glitterati until recently, but it's been giving the West End a run for its money in the celebrity residents stake, especially with actors, artists and musicians.
One resident told the Daily Mail: "It used to be a tough neighborhood and it still is a bit rough round the edges, but the influx of big stars is changing it dramatically. You see Keira wandering around, often wearing a hat to hide her features. She still gets recognized, but no one hassles her". Keira can now count the chef Angela Hartnett amongst her neighbours, as well as the artists Tracy Emin and Gilbert and George.
