Superstar Madonna is reportedly planning to move her family to New York, after becoming bored with the British lifestyle.
The Material Girl - who settled in England after marrying film director Guy Ritchie in 2000 - prompted speculation about a move after being spotted viewing luxurious mansions in Manhattan over the weekend.
One residence, said to have particularly attracted Madonna's attention, was an $35 million six-storey townhouse, boasting seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, three kitchens and a garden. The property also comes complete with nanny and servants' quarters.
A source says, "Living in the English countryside must be getting a bit monotonous for her.
"She has actually flown here to concentrate on finding a New York home where she will spend a good deal of time and perhaps even send her children here."
Madonna already owns an apartment in New York, as well as her $11.7 million London home and an estate in rural Wiltshire, England.
