Elizabeth Hurley wants £6 million restoration for mansion

Elizabeth Hurley wants to spend £6 million on a country mansion restoration.

The former 'Gossip Girl' actress and her fiance Shane Warne have revealed they want to give their Hertfordshire, UK home a makeover and bring it back to its former glory.

In their planning application, the couple stated: "The interior works will consist of a sensitive refurbishment and redecoration.

"In addition to general refurbishment and redecoration works, the overall ambition of the works is to undo a lot of the damage done over the last century with inappropriate design choices.

"All our works to the property seek to either repair, restore or reinstate the historic fabric of the building, or if new, to be historically in keeping and appropriate in style to the building."

The 48-year-old star and the cricketer - who have been engaged since 2011 - bought the property last year.

While locals in the area don't see a huge amount of the couple, one villager did reveal they hoped the application would be successful.

The insider told the Daily Mail newspaper: "It's a beautiful old mansion but it needs a lot of money spending on it.

"We don't see a lot of Liz and Shane but maybe once the place is up to scratch they will be spending more time there.

"I hope they get planning permission - I can't see many people objecting to them restoring the place to its former glory."
