The actor is selling the LA home he once shared with Kristen Stewart and is said to be considering returning to London to be closer to friends and family.
"Robert is thinking long and hard about returning to London. He's selling his home in Los Angeles, not only because it holds bad memories, but because he wants a fresh start," a source told Radar.
"He never fell in love with Los Angeles and has always longed for home. When Kristen was shooting Snow White and the Huntsman in London, he made his excuses to visit her as much as he could - he missed it so much.
"Despite making friends in America, Robert longs just to have a pint with the mates he grew up with in a local west London pub. He's just a regular guy.
"He is set to make up his mind very soon - his family hasn't put pressure on him to return - but he misses them very much and they've said they'd welcome him back with open arms."
Stewart admitted last month that she had been unfaithful to Pattinson with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
