Country star Taylor Swift is moving closer to America's famous political clan The Kennedys after purchasing a new home near the family compound in Massachusetts.

The singer has been romantically linked to Robert Kennedy, Jr's 18-year-old son Conor in recent weeks, and earlier this month Swift introduced her new boyfriend to her parents during a low-key dinner in her home city of Nashville, Tennessee.

Now the singer has put down roots in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod, buying a beach mansion located opposite the home of Conor's grandmother, Ethel Kennedy, last week.

The seven-bedroom, five-bathroom property was originally listed for $US14 million ($A13.32 million), but WENN has confirmed that Swift managed to land the home for just $US4.9 million.

Swift, 22, has been a regular visitor to Hyannis Port since spending America's Independence Day holiday on July 4 there with the Kennedys and she has already won the approval of the famous family after meeting them through Conor's aunt, Rory, at one of her concerts.

Ethel Kennedy recently gushed about Swift's blossoming relationship with Conor, saying, "We should be so lucky (to have her in our family)."

A realtor told People magazine, "It's in a beautiful location and right across the street from Conor and the Kennedys.

"It's a beautiful home. She got a nice home, paid fair price. The house was on the market for two to four years."
