Pop star Taylor Swift has rented a residence in the West Village neighbourhood in New York – one of the most expensive residential areas in the United States.

It is believed she will live there for the next year while her Tribeca penthouse in Lower Manhattan is renovated.

The home will cost the 10-time Grammy winner around half a million dollars for the year – about $40,000 (£28,000) each month.

It has five bedrooms, two living rooms, a private garage, and a swimming pool.Built in 1912, this prewar beauty of a home has exposed brick throughout, as well as expansive windows for taking in spectacular city views.
