Jamie Oliver is said to be planning a £3 million revamp of his new home. The Highgate mansion has already set him back £8.7 million, and a new report claims this is just the start - the chef plans a complete overhaul.
The property is already stunning, with seven bedrooms for Jamie and Jools Oliver - and their four children - an unsurprisingly large kitchen, a 31-foot-long formal living room, a panelled dining room, a walk-in wine cellar, and a beautiful formal garden.
If they run out of space for guests, there's also a three-storey guest cottage in the grounds. In total the property is laid out over 5,700 square feet - according to Variety.
However, the Mirror has reported that the family is planning changes that are likely to set them back another £3 million. The unnamed source suggested the changes would add considerably to the value of the property.
Oliver is no stranger to property renovation. The family is currently living in a Primrose Hill house, formed by knocking together two adjoining homes. The Olivers were living in one of the properties, and in 2008 when the one next door went on the market, he snapped it up, and knocked through. At the time it was estimated that the work cost them £500,000.
This new property is another step up the mega mansion end of the property ladder. It's a world away from the property that most people associate with Oliver - the Clerkenwell flat where The Naked Chef was filmed. That went on the market for a shade under £3 million last year.
But while spending this sort of money on renovations seems incredible for most of us, it's fair to say that the man thought to be the world's richest chef can probably afford it.
In fact, for a mega-wealthy celebrity couple, this is a fairly modest renovation. At the moment, for example, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are renovating their Oxfordshire property, and while no details of the costs have been released, the plans submitted to the council show the addition of a swimming pool, grand terrace and private cinema - which aren't going to be cheap.
Meanwhile, Roman Abramovich is said to be planning to spend £28 million on his £90 million home in Kensington Palace Gardens. Additions include an exceptionally large basement extension and a massive leisure complex under the garden.
