Ronan Keating and wife Storm have swapped city life in London for the idyllic English countryside.
The couple had been based in the plush London suburb of Barnes but have made the move to a quieter and more relaxed way of life in a country estate on the outskirts of the city.
"It’s still only a quick drive into London and very convenient to Heathrow Airport (which was very important for us given the amount we travel)," Storm wrote on her blog.
"But when we’re at the house (which we've already started referring to as the farm) we feel like we’re miles away from everything" she said.
She explained that the couple had been looking for their perfect home for a couple of years and the long process made her want to "cry with frustration" but a "bit of patience, hard work, positivity and hope" helped the Keatings land their dream home.
The Australian-born TV producer explained that the couple were keen to enjoy a quieter pace of life due to their hectic lifestyles.
"My husband and I are definitely one of those couples that move through life in the fast lane (the super dooper crazy fast lane)," she said.
"We work continuously, travel continuously, and cram way too many things into our days continuously.
"Plus with no signs of this slowing down any time soon, we found ourselves craving more balance in our lives and knew that this would mean a serious adjudication of our living arrangements."
The pair are clearly smitten with their new new home and have been sharing photos on Instagram as they settle into their new surrounds where they get to enjoy views of rolling green hills and wake up to the sound of birds chirping outside their window.
"This move was a no-brainer for us, it was the perfect way to "earth" us amid all the chaos of our careers and nurture our souls in the most simplistic was possible," said Storm.
The 34-year-old grew up on a farm in the Australian countryside and said she was keen to get back to her roots.
She also revealed that the family are planning to grow their own vegetables, harvest their rainwater and renovate their new home.
