Amidst the ripples of their divorce, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's real estate choices are grabbing headlines. The duo's mutual decision to buy a residence in the U.K., just months before their separation, has become a noteworthy detail of their relationship's last stages.
Three months prior to initiating divorce proceedings, Joe Jonas, the internationally recognized singer, showed every intention of relocating to the U.K. alongside "Game of Thrones" star, Sophie Turner, and their young daughters. The evidence lies in their joint property purchase in the historic town of Wallingford, Oxford, England, which was solidified on July 7. The court documents, released this past Tuesday, confirm the transaction and show the couple's serious investment – they made a 10% down payment on a property valued around a whopping $9 million.
In an earnest offer letter dated June 16, Jonas shed light on their family's wishes for their U.K. home. He wrote, “Our daughter had three clear wishes – chickens, a pony, and a Wendy house. While many estates met these demands, it was the blue shutters of [this home] that truly enchanted us.” The singer couldn’t help but express the unparalleled magic they felt on first seeing the residence.
U.K. Dream Home Amid Split
Jonas continued to rave about the home’s “beautiful walled garden” among other striking features. "The residence was simply divine! My father-in-law, a passionate gardener, was especially taken with the vegetable garden – a significant endorsement!" he enthusiastically added.
However, shortly after this shared dream of a U.K. home, the unexpected occurred. Jonas and Turner, after four blissful years of matrimony, chose to part ways. Their commitment to handling the situation with grace was evident when, just a day post Joe’s divorce filing, the couple shared a united statement on Instagram. They emphasized that their decision was both "mutual" and "amicable", indicating their intent to navigate this difficult time with respect and love for one another.
With such a recent property purchase, questions arise about the future of the Wallingford estate, symbolizing the dreams of a family that, for now, remains in flux.
