George Clooney and his wife Amal are working on creating their dream marital home. The couple have begun renovations on the £10million Grade II listed Berkshire home they bought back in October 2014.

Plans have been submitted to revamp the nine-bedroom Georgian mansion and its grounds as well build a new swimming pool, a pool house, a garden terrace and a private cinema.

Proposed changes sent to George and Amal's local council also reportedly include alterations to the property's boat house, replacement of the existing entrance gates and piers and new boundary fencing.

The luxury home itself is already kitted out with a gym, spa, steam room, wine cellar and a library while its stunning location on the River Thames gives human rights lawyer Amal easy access to her London office.

For the time being, however, George and Amal are basing themselves stateside.

Earlier this month the happy couple were seen walking hand-in-hand as they headed home from high-end Japanese restaurant Kappo Masa on New York's Upper East Side.

New York will be home to George and Amal for the foreseeable future.

George, 53, is busy in the Big Apple filming his new movie Money Monster, while 37-year-old UK-based attorney Amal recently announced that she is joining Columbia University this spring as a visiting faculty member and as a senior fellow with the law school’s Human Rights Institute. Her new position will likely last until 15 May.

"It is an honour to be invited as a visiting professor at Columbia Law School alongside such a distinguished faculty and talented student pool," Amal said in an official statement. "I look forward to getting to know the next generation of human rights advocates studying here."

Amal's impressive CV makes her the ideal candidate for the job. She has served as a senior adviser to Kofi Annan and represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in extradition proceedings. She has also handled numerous cases before the International Criminal Court and the European Court of Human Rights.
