Stunning: Lily Allen has spent £3million on Old Overtown House in Cranham, Gloucestershire

Pregnant Lily Allen has spent £3million on a new six-bedroomed house in the Cotswolds.

The 25-year-old singer, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Sam Cooper, is the new owner of the luxurious 17th century Old Overtown House which is surrounded by a National Trust estate and is an Area of Outstanding Beauty at Cranham, near Painswick, Gloucestershire.

Allen is also believed to have chosen the house because it is situated near to her father Keith's house, around five miles way in Minchinhampton.

Spacious: As well as the six-bedroomed house, the property also has a three-bedroom guest cottage

A spokeswoman at the Cirencester offices of estate agent Savills confirmed: 'Yes, she is the buyer of Old Overtown House - that's absolutely correct. It's all gone through and she is now the proud new owner.

'There have been rumours for a while that she is buying it but we have not been able to say anything till now.

'She no longer wants it kept secret, it is a done deal.'

Romantic: The 17th Century property boasts traditional features and beautiful furnishings

Traditional: The view of the lounge, just one of the reception rooms the property has

As well as coming complete with six bedrooms, five bathrooms and three receptions rooms in the main house, the property also boasts a three-bedroom cottage in the grounds.

It is located on a west-facing Cotswolds slope and is just three miles from the village of Painswick and seven miles from Cheltenham.

Formal: The house has many place to enjoy a home-cooked meal, including this formal dining room

Relaxed: Or this much more relaxed kitchen, complete with an Aga and grandfather clock

The Savills spokesperson added: 'It enjoys the most wonderful uninterrupted views over the unspoilt surrounding countryside, framed by broad leafed woodland.

'It is approached down a long driveway, protected by the National Trust owned Ebworth Estate, a beautiful untouched piece of rural England.

'Many of the period details still remain including an array of fine stone fireplaces, polished timber and stone floors, carved door architraves and exposed beams.

Entrance: The entrace hall has a table and six chairs where people can sit with a large chandelier over them

Reception: And in yet another reception room, a smaller table and chairs for perhaps more everyday dining
