Taylor Swift to Jersey Shore: “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”

Remember last summer, when the Twitterverse was abuzz with rumors that Taylor Swift was buying a home in Sea Isle City, New Jersey? A house that looked like this (below)?

The house everyone thought Taylor Swift was building in Sea Isle.

That was cute. As though she was going to bring John Mayer or whoever to the Sea Isle promenade and get a slice. Ridic.

In fact, when Taylor does beach houses, she goes upscale and boyfriend. From Vanity Fair:

In response to the rumors that Swift was looking to buy a house next to the home of her then boyfriend Conor Kennedy’s family in Hyannis Port, Swift tells Sales, “People say that about me, that I apparently buy houses near every boy I like—that’s a thing that I apparently do. If I like you I will apparently buy up the real-estate market just to freak you out so you leave me.”

Which is apparently what happened last summer, because she did actually buy the house ($4.8 million) and they did actually split up.

But this summer Taylor is looking at other beach houses–not in Sea Isle, but in Rhode Island. Witness the Harkness House for $24 million, an oceanfront estate that’s rather more extravagant than anything our little slice of Jersey heaven could offer, as seen below:

But WAIT! The home was designed by a Philadelphia architect. See? Taylor still has a little place in heart for us after all.
