The hardreading staff’s Taylor Swift bureau has diligently tracked – and Tracked! – the rumpus over whether she did or did not buy the Hyannisport house next door to boyfriend Conor Kennedy’s grandma Ethel. Locally, the Boston Herald said she made the creepy-stalky purchase while the Boston Globe said the jury’s still out.
It turns out, those rumors just weren’t true. A New York hedge fund manager — not Taylor Swift — signed a contract to buy the house next door to the Kennedy compound, according to the real estate agency representing the property’s seller.
Paul Grover, a principal in Robert Paul Properties, said the buyer signed a contract for the home at 27 Marchant Ave. in Hyannisport, but the sale has not closed yet.
So there’s still, er, hope?
We hope not.
Regardless, it’s good to live in a three-daily town, yes?
