It appears that Robert Pattinson is taking matters into his own hands to make sure that 2013 is not anything like 2012. And the first step in that process? According to Hollywood Life, it’s buying a house in London to spend more time with his friends and family. Correction: Buying a house with Kristen Stewart.

The Daily Mirror reports that Robert wants to spend more time at home and is attempting to split time evenly between London and LA by buying a home in Richmond.

“Ever since Kristen’s ­affair last year, Rob has ­realized just how much his friends and family in the UK mean to him. After spending more time [in London] in recent months, Rob’s decided he wants to split his time more between London and Los Angeles. He wants to put down roots in London and he’s doing it with ­Kristen,” a source told The Daily Mirror.

“They decided to base themselves in Richmond, South-West London, so Rob can be close to his parents’ home in Barnes. Rob knows the area as he attended Tower House, a prep school near Richmond Park. So his dad Richard put him in touch with an estate agent who lined up appointments,” the source said. Close to Robert’s old prep school, huh? Could they be preparing for future children?

But how does Kristen feel about the prospect of living in London? “They both fell in love with the property as soon as they saw it. Kristen’s really excited about the prospect of spending more time in the UK and has been saying how she’d love to star in a West End show,” the source said.

Well, it certainly sounds like Robert’s 2013 plan is a good one. After all, what’s one house when you can own two?
