Rocker Courtney Love
is desperate to flee her hectic lifestyle in "dirty" Los Angeles and set up home in the English countryside. She has previously house-hunted in the British capital and even viewed Kate Moss'
north London apartment, but pulled out of the $7 million deal after deciding it was not for her.
The former Hole
singer, 43, claims the U.K. is a much healthier place to bring up her daughter with late Nirvana
frontman Kurt Cobain
, 15-year-old Frances Bean, and has been viewing properties in the country for several months with the hope of finding a permanent home.
She says, "I am fed up with Los Angeles. It's dirty and full of crazy people. I want a complete lifestyle change. People criticize Britain but it is still a cleaner, safer place to live than Hollywood. I don't want to live in the city. I love the greenery and the freshness of the countryside. It is just a healthier place for me to be. I've been house-hunting seriously and I'll know as soon as I find the perfect place."
Love was recently spotted looking at properties around the $10 million range in the plush area of Sunningdale in Berkshire, south-east England, an area that is often referred to as the Royal County of Berkshire because of royal residence Windsor Castle's location in the county. And rock royalty Love could soon meet true royalty - Britain's Prince Andrew also owns a mansion in Sunningdale.
