Harry Styles of One Direction has bought a gated bachelor pad in the Beverly Hills Post Office area for $4 million.

The privately situated compound, designed by architect Alejandro Ortiz and built in 1967, features a post-and-beam main house with five bedrooms, a detached one-bedroom guest house, a sunken central courtyard with lawn, decks and a swimming pool.

A covered wooden bridge sheltered by mature trees connects the compound.

There are also walls of glass, a library/study, a bar, a gym and canyon views.

Styles, 20, performed on “The X Factor” in 2010, where the group now called One Direction had its beginnings. The boy band has released three albums and toured around the world. Among their hits have been “Live While We’re Young,” “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Best Song Ever.”

The property previously sold in 2005 for $3.2 million. News of the purchase, which The Times has confirmed,  surfaced on the Mirror and Realestalker.

David Kramer and Alla Furman of Hilton & Hyland were the listing agents. Branden Williams and Rayni Romito Williams represented Styles.
