Gwyneth Paltrow and husband building £7m mega-home

Monday August 24, 2009

Gwyneth Paltrow and her Coldplay singer husband Chris Martin have bought the adjoining house to their Primrose Hill pad with plans to create a massive 33-room mansion estimated to be worth £7m.

Gwyneth and Chris are following in the footsteps of Jamie Oliver, who is currently building his own 19-bedroom mansion out of two houses nearby.

The couple, who bought their original £2.5 million home (pictured) from Kate Winslet in 2004, have purchased the neighbouring property for £3.1million.

Plans show they intend to knock through the connecting walls to create eight rooms on the lower ground floor, six on the upper ground, five on the first floor and eight on the second floor.

A two-storey extension at the side of the existing house will include a gym, changing room, three bedrooms and a bathroom.

The couple own several other properties across the globe, including one in New York's exclusive Hamptons.
