New York: Actor Tom Cruise is set to buy a new house here so he can spend more time with his daughter Suri after estranged wife Katie Holmes decided to make the city her permanent home.

"Tom's looking for a new home here. He wants a fresh start. He doesn't want to go back to the East Village apartment where he was living with Katie," quoted a source as saying.

"He's looking for something that's very private where he won't have to deal with going through a lobby, and people outside all the time," said the source. The 50-year-old has told friends his main concern is having enough space for Suri to play in.

"He also wants to have a nice amount of space for Suri, with outdoor space. That could mean high end luxury apartments, but he's also looking at houses outside of the city or in gated communities," said a friend.

Holmes filed for divorce last month after five years of marriage and they agreed on their divorce settlement within a matter of weeks, with her getting primary custody of Suri and Cruise being granted visitation rights.
