Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have reportedly been looking for a London home - and have their eye on a place in Richmond.

The Twilight co-stars, who recently reconciled after the brunette admitted cheating on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last summer, are said to be keen to purchase a plush property in the capital, where the 26-year-old hunk was born.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “Ever since Kristen’s affair last year, Rob has realised just how much his friends and family in the UK mean to him.

“After spending more time here in recent months, Rob’s decided he wants to split his time more between London and Los Angeles.

“He wants to put down roots in London and he’s doing it with Kristen.

“He’s told her that if she wants to make things work, she’s going to have to accept that he wants to spend much more time in London.”

The couple already have their heart set on one luxury Victorian house in Richmond, which has an “LA feel” to it and is close to Robert’s parents’ home.

The source added: “It’s on the market for millions. Unlike the others they saw, this is suited to their tastes and needs very little work.

“With their hectic filming schedules they want somewhere they can live in straight away and it has a beautiful garden too.

The source added: “They decided to base themselves in Richmond, so Rob can be close to his parents’ home in Barnes. Rob knows the area as he attended Tower House, a prep school near Richmond Park. So his dad Richard put him in touch with an estate agent who lined up appointments.”

Kristen, 22, is even eyeing up a role in a West End production.

The source explained: “Kristen’s really excited about the prospect of spending more time in the UK and has been saying how she’d love to star in a West End show.”
