Kate Moss is planning to install an £850,000 gym and steam room in the basement of her home.
The 37-year-old supermodel - who lives in a £7 million property in north London with her husband, The Kills rocker Jamie Hince, and her eight-year-old daughter Lila Grace - has applied for a £2.5 million redevelopment of her Grade II listed home, which also includes building a third dressing room, installing a giant satellite dish on the roof and fitting eight security cameras.
However, the proposed changes haven't gone down well with local residents who live near Kate, with neighbours labelling the plans "tacky" and an "affront" to the 19th century mansion formerly owned by poet Samuel Taylor-Coleridge and author J.B. Priestly. One told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Kate lives in a blue plaque property, commemorating the fact that Preistly previously lived in it.
"As well as a tacky gym and steam room complex, there's going to be a basement kitchen. I dread to imagine the kind of smells that will be wafting up.
"She's also planning on installing a huge satellite dish which will look so ugly on top of such an old, sprawling house, as will all these new-fangled cameras. It's an affront to the blue plaque."
The new gym could be part of Kate's plans to adopt a new, healthier lifestyle so she and Jamie - who tied the knot on July 3 - can try for a baby.
