According to TMZ's real estate spies, the property was meant to go for $20 mill., but the ever business-keen Swift managed to knock the price down a few million to $17.75 million.

Swift apparently wired the money over last week and picked up the keys on Saturday (April 27), with moving vans spotted arriving at the house later in the day. It isn't known if Taylor has actually moved into the property yet, but given the recent activities it seems more than likely that the new face of Diet Coke has become Rhode Island's latest famous face.

It is believed that Swift was searching for a new house to enjoy in the summer after she sold her Hyannis Port, Massachusetts home last year following her break up with former boyfriend Conor Kennedy. His family owned property in the same area and Taylor wanted to make a clean break from the Kennedy family. The singer also owns property in Beverley Hills and Nashville, where her parents also live, to go with her new residence.
