One Direction boys Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson formerly rented a luxurious bachelor pad in North London, and even came close to buying it. However, with their hectic promotional schedule it was a good thing the boyband singers didn’t shell out the estimated £3million to purchase their former home in Friern Barnet.

Harry, 18, and Louis, 20, rented the spacious property for £5,000 per month but now they have officially moved out, it is back on the market.
Ashley Cole was the previous tenant of the flat and he met Cheryl Cole there too, as she also lived in the same block.
The development, which is listed on Zoopla.co.uk, boasts a sports gym, private minibus and gated access with round the clock security.
Although Louis has been dating Hollister model and Manchester University student Eleanor Calder for some time, Harry has been enjoying the fruits of stardom.
His screaming fans are sure to be impressed with his former pad, especially his spacious sleeping quarters with a king size bed.
Styles and Tomlinson, who are called collectively Larry Stylinson by fans, must have gotten some good practice cooking in the 360 degree kitchen.
If they ever got bored of spending time in their own living room, the boys could have entertained guests in their cinema room.
With a spare bedroom complete with en-suite bathroom going for anyone who wanted to stay over, the modern apartment seemed like the perfect home for young guys.
The building, which is called ‘the dome’, is situated in 20 acres of mature parkland and is a listed period property.
A source told the Daily Star, earlier this year: ‘Harry and Louis are living the life of luxury and loving every single minute.
‘They had a wild bash with Louis hiring a coach to bring his old school chums.
‘Harry was telling everyone he’s fallen head over heels for the flat, and loved the fact Ashley Cole used to live there.
‘Most lads dream of lording around a footballer’s pad, so Harry and Louis have earned bragging rights.’
Their bandmates Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne also lived in the development, which is a redevelopment of the Victorian institution the Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum.
