MICHELLE Keegan and Mark Wright have spent time creating their beautiful Essex lovenest complete with a lavish bedroom, huge garden and LOTS of mirrors.
But now, while still enjoying their luxurious surroundings, the couple are diverting their attention to building a dream house nearby.
Mark, 33, was recently spotted on the new site on which once stood a £1.3m mansion.
The ex Towie star purchased it in October last year before demolishing it in July.
Mark and Michelle, also 33, submitted plans in February to knock down the farmhouse and replace it with a vast Georgian-style home.
The architect drawings reveal the house will feature a ground floor bar, gym, TV room, study, outdoor swimming pool – and of course the playroom for any future offspring.
There are lots of mirrors in their home
Last year Mark Wright made the difficult decision to quit his dream job in LA and return to the UK to be with his wife Michelle Keegan full time.
And they've worked hard to turn their current stunning Essex pad into the perfect home – complete with six bedrooms, three bathrooms and a spacious garden.
The married couple purchased the gaff in 2013 and have kept it pretty much under wraps since then, just giving their fans just a few sneak peeks over the years.
And from what we’ve seen it’s clear the former Towie star and actress have got quite the house – including its own gym, a large hallway and plush furnishings.
The £2million property in Chigwell, Essex has plenty of space for them to unwind when they aren’t off travelling the globe for work.
In March, Michelle shocked her legion of fans when she appeared via video link from the couple's master bedroom – revealing the huge padded bed – floor to ceiling mirrors and neutral design.
Décor wise, the power pair have opted for neutral shades including cream carpets and pale wood panel flooring.
In the main hallway, Michelle and Mark have kept it classy with cream walls and a traditional banister.
At Christmas time this area becomes the centre of their home, with a large Christmas tree as the focal point.
Their living room is just as neutral, with a large flat screen TV on the wall and mirrored cabinets covered in pictures of the happy couple.
Flowers and candles are also a big part of their home and large white bouquets open pop up in pictures.
There are also large silver candle holders, which look like lanterns and glitzy glass globe shaped chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.
Their bathroom is just as immaculate and when Michelle has shared the occasional toilet selfie, fans have been able to spot the round sink and designer radiator.
And when guests come to stay there is a sumptuous looking crush velvet bed to crash on in one of the guest rooms.
Michelle previously said the couple didn’t need to do much when they moved in five years ago, telling fans: “The house we’ve seen has already got [everything] done, thank God. It’s already decorated how we like, all we need is furniture.”
The year after moving in, Michelle revealed where they had purchased the finishing touches for their home, writing in her blog for Hello! Magazine: “We are so settled in our new home.
“It’s like a real sanctuary now, and I have to thank Laura and Sarah who run an interior design/furniture shop business in Essex called ‘Stripes of Essex’.
“They are sisters and have a sharp eye for detail, and have helped make the house into a home 🙂 can’t recommend them enough – thank you talented ladies!!”
