Lewis Capaldi has dug deep for a stunning first home complete with its very own island, but it’s still just a stone’s throw from his beloved mum and dad.

The Scottish singer, 23, paid a reported £1.6million for the sprawling five-bedroom Castlehill property in August as he prepares to finally move out of his parents’ house.

But homesickness won’t be an issue, with his new purchase based just 30-miles from the Capaldi family home in Bathgate, West Lothian.

In terms of design however, it’s a fair cry from his comparatively modest upbringing, with plenty of interior and exterior space for the singer to unwind. 

Surrounded by acres of picturesque countryside, Capaldi’s new home comes with a series of unique details – notably a summer house built on an island in the middle of a large, tranquil pond.

A former farmhouse, the property also boasts a series of stables for the aspiring horse breeder – although it’s not known if Capaldi has plans to redevelop this part of the estate.

Not bad: An enormous glass conservatory sits at the rear of the property, offering the singer welcome viewers of the garden and its wide assortment of trees, shrubbery and neatly manicured lawns

But Capaldi might have little use for the space due to his master bedroom coming with a large en-suite – complete with its very own jacuzzi. 

Touching on the singer’s decision to remain close to his family, a source told The Sun: ‘Lewis could buy a place to stay anywhere in the world — this shows just how much he loves Scotland. It’s a far cry from his family home where he recorded his first music.’

Earlier this year the singer used his YouTube channel to give fans a guided tour of the cluttered bedroom inside his family home, complete with New York wallpaper and Ikea style furniture.

Speaking on why he still lives at home, the star – who had occupied the bedroom since the age of 10 – admitted he’d rather spend his money on food than rent.

He told the Daily Star: ‘All I spend my money on is food because I can’t help stuffing my face. I am splurging on food and it shows, it’s showing on my gut, my gut is expanding every day.’

According to The Sun , Lewis was previously estimated to have had a net worth of almost £8 million by Forbes, but the singer denied earning such an amount.

Taking to Instagram last year, the singing sensation hilariously mocked the reports that stated he’s net worth was sitting at close to US $10 million.

In a comic rage, he said: ‘It says according to Forbes and Wikipedia, Lewis Capaldi’s estimated net worth is $10 million.

‘I have less than £200 in my bank right now so who the f*** has my $10 million.’

He continued: ‘Are you telling I’m kicking about in the same clothes I’ve worn for the last six months and there’s $10 million sitting about somewhere, where is it?

‘I still live with my mum and dad, I’ve been in the same bedroom since I was 12-years-old and there’s apparently $10 million sitting there? If the tax man sees that, I’m f****d’.’

Tour: The bedroom tour revealed that Lewis still has the same desk in one corner of the room, with a vanity mirror on the wall above, along with a poster-covered cupboard for his tracksuits
