She’s swiftly laying down roots near the Kennedys.
Gorgeous country star Taylor Swift is looking to buy the sprawling $4.9 million mansion for sale next door to her beau, Conor Kennedy, 18, and new best friend — his grandmother, Ethel.
Asked yesterday about the chance the songbird may one day be her granddaughter-in-law, Ethel, 83, said, “We should be so lucky.”
The sprawling estate Swift, 22, is eyeing features its own private beach and is owned by a longtime pal of the late Eunice Kennedy. It was checked out over the weekend by a house inspector hired by Swift, sources said.
“She can walk all over the neighborhood and not worry about being ambushed by a mob of screaming girls,” a local told The Post.
“Around here, everything’s laid back and people don’t play into the fame. You don’t see people running around trying to take pictures of her.”
