The picturesque English property that Joe Jonas once fantasized living in with his now estranged wife, Sophie Turner, and their two daughters has been revealed.
Page Six has obtained photos of the stunning estate in Wallingford, Oxford, that the Jonas Brothers member longed to buy for his family just three months before filing for divorce.
The images show the “charming blue shutters” Jonas, 34, mentioned in his June 16 letter to the seller, which Turner, 27, leaked to the court earlier this week in an effort to prove that her ex did want to reside in England full time.
The “Games of Thrones” actress sued the “Sucker” singer this month, claiming he “wrongfully removed or wrongfully retained” their daughters, Willa, 3, and Delphine, 1.
She then agreed to keep the kids in New York City temporarily while the exes sorted out their future living situation.
In Jonas’ bombshell letter, he raved about the Oxford house’s “beautiful walled garden,” which can be seen in the new photos.The house Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner called their “forever home” has been revealed.Click News and Media / BACKGRID The property is located in Wallingford, Oxford.Click News and Media / BACKGRID The house is worth £7.5 million.Click News and Media / BACKGRID
The £7.5 million property’s green landscape also borders a beautiful lake that extends for miles.
Jonas wrote that he could see himself “dropping [his] children to school on the boat and being able to spend a leisurely afternoon cruising to the pub with friends on [his] very own boat.”
“We could tell that your family have truly loved living here and we can envision our children growing up here and making this our forever home,” the DNCE frontman concluded in the heartfelt note.The scenic estate borders a beautiful lake.Click News and Media / BACKGRID Jonas wrote in a letter to the home’s seller than he planned to take his kids to school via a boat, presumably due to the lake on the property.Click News and Media / BACKGRID
“I really think Sophie and I will be able to look after [redacted names] and for many years pay homage to the magic you have created here.”
Jonas’s words were so moving that the seller ended up accepting his and Turner’s offer, according to court documents.
The former couple put down a £750,000 ($914,130) deposit on the house on July 7 and the sale was set to be finalized in less than three months on Dec. 2.Jonas and Turner put a deposit down on the house in July.Click News and Media / BACKGRID The seller accepted the offer and the former couple were set to finalize the sale by Dec. 2.Click News and Media / BACKGRID

A source told Page Six exclusively Friday that the Oxford house is in escrow and the sale “never closed.”
The insider also told us of Jonas’s letter, “Intention, expressed in a letter or otherwise, does not equal residency. Actions do. And so while the letter was inserted in the motion in order to pique the attention of reporters, it won’t actually be material to determine legal residency.”Jonas filed to divorce Turner on Sept. 5 after four years of marriage.FilmMagic for dcp
Amid the ongoing divorce battle, Turner is living with her daughters in a New York apartment that Taylor Swift — who dated Jonas herself in 2008 — loaned her.
