The 'Whistleblower' actress - who secretly wed the James Bond actor in New York last week (22.06.11) - has employed a team of builders to "completely modernise" her four-storey £3 million north London townhouse, which she used to share with ex-partner Darren Aronofsky.
A neighbour told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Darren is not here, he lives in New York now. Rachel's not here but has commissioned all this work to be done on the place.
"By the looks of things, it is going to be completely modernised, so that she and Daniel can make a fresh start together and Rachel won't be affected by memories of her former partner.
"Quite a few, pretty cool gadget items have been coming and going - including some state of the art gym equipment and top-notch security cameras and gear."
The couple - who are set to star in horror movie 'Dream House', which was filmed throughout 2010 and is due to be released in September - began dating in December and tied the knot in front of just four people last week.
Rachel and Darren split last year and in an announcement in November revealed they had been separated for some time, but remain committed to raising their five-year-old son Henry together.
