Simon Cowell has reportedly been given permission to modernise his £15million mansion.
The 60-year-old Syco boss bought the 18th century abode in south west London in October 2018.
And he’s just had council agreement to make some changes to suit the ‘modern requirements of the family’.
According to The Sun, the X Factor judge is planning to add a 15-metre outdoor pool with its own pool house and bar within the grounds of the seven-bedroom propert.
Not too shabby.
He also wants to update the building with better lighting, underfloor heating, air conditioning and a state-of-the-art security system.He wants to modernise it for his siz-year-old son Eric (Picture: Getty)
The America’s Got Talent judge wants to be able to relax when at home with partner Lauren Silverman and their six-year-old son Eric, so he will have the existing sunroom extended and add a ‘glazed conservation lantern’ roof (yeah, we don’t know what that is either).
The plans say the roof will ‘allow the owner to enjoy sunshine throughout the year in a private position’. Right then.
A timber pergola will be erected in the gardens in order to ‘create a visual interest and to assist with growing plants to enhance the character of this external space’.
Simon also plans to add three new car gates, which will include ‘new retractable bollards repositioned to the centre of the gates’.

The Britain’s Got Talent star has promised to keep the village’s Victorian post box, which is attached to an outer wall and is still in use today.
Simon and Lauren – who also have a mansion in LA – were reportedly keen to move out of their old home in west London in order to be closer to good private schools for Eric to attend.
He said: ‘It was nerve-racking. Lauren was woken up with me and we checked on Eric. That was the first thing we did, to make sure he was OK.
‘Apart from the fact someone broke into my house and stole my stuff, which is scary, it could have been worse. Thankfully no one was hurt.’
