The singer was in Los Angeles for a finance meeting with his father in this connection.
Styles's father Des is helping him manage his funds by channelling cash into property, land and art. While he's been in the US, he's also been eyeing a new home in Malibu.
"Styles loves Los Angeles, he bought an apartment last year. Des spent the week viewing other properties and land around the Los Feliz neighbourhood," thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
"Styles has his heart set on a Malibu house on the beach, like one the Beckhams rented from Steven Spielberg a few years ago.
"Styles's dad is in charge of sourcing the best investments to safeguard his son's future. Des keeps drumming into him that everything he earns should go into property," the source added.
