He recently showed off his business sense by investing his hard-earned cash in a 3m mansion in a exclusive area of North London.

But it seems that Harry Styles new property, which has already been dubbed Harry's Party Palace, may not have been the right direction as it's said to haunted by the ghost of legendary highwayman Dick Turpin.

The One Direction singer, who is expected to move into the pad which boasts 2,300sq ft of living space soon, may not be aware that, according to The Sun, he might be sharing the space with the ghost of Dick, which has reportedly been seen inside the house.

It's thought that the sound of his famous horse, Black Bess, can often be heard outside.

Richard Turpin was an English
highwayman, who was executed in York for horse theft and he was well
known for involvement in highway robbery with his gang.

The four bedroom crib backs on to a pub where the outlaw and his gang (who weren't quite the equivalent of the popular boy band) used to hang out back in the 1700s.

A source told the newspaper: 'The ghost of Turpin has been spotted in the window – and according to legend you can hear the sounds of his horse hooves.

'Locals say he used to hide in the courtyard next to the pub waiting for his victims to come down the road before robbing them.'

The 18-year-old, who also has a flat in the East End of London, has reportedly purchased the house so he could be close to his close pal, Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw, who lives nearby.
