Victoria Beckham plans to splash out £500,000 on a ''James Bond-style'' kitchen.

The fashion designer and her husband David recently splashed out £40 million on a new London home and she is enlisting the services of her interior designer friend Kelly Hoppen to redesign the property, complete with a futuristic food preparation area.

A source said: ''Victoria's planning a massive overhaul of the whole place, while remaining sympathetic to the house's original features. She's set aside a cool half a million for her James Bond-style kitchen alone.

''It won't even look like a kitchen when it's done as all of the appliances - the cooker, the fridge - will disappear into marble units at the press of a button.

''Victoria also has plans to grow her own organic veggies - macrobiotic salads, alfalfa sprouts and so on - in a state-of-the-art greenhouse outside.''

The seven-bedroom, eight bathroom property will also include recreational areas for the couple's children - Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, Cruz, eight, and two-year-old Harper - and a dedicated ''man den'' for David, who also wants a dark room to indulge in his passion for photography.

The source said: ''The boys are having their own gaming room - Romeo's really into the drums right now so it will be soundproofed too.

''David's asked for his own office, with oak-panelled walls. They're thinking Ralph Lauren-style.''

Victoria's relaxation space will come in the form of a state-of-the-art exercise area.

The source told heat magazine: ''Victoria's spending around £100,000 on a home gym so she can work out with one of Tracey Anderson's trainers, and there's even talk of a Bikram yoga studio.''
