Gallagher's Thunderbirds home
16:30 09 October 2006
Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is buying a house inspired by classic TV show 'Thunderbirds'.
The 'Wonderwall' singer is set to splash out £4 million on the country property, which is based upon the fictional Tracy Island featured in the cult puppet series.
The luxury pad - named 'Thunderbird' - has been described as "a modern architectural masterpiece" and is located in an area of Branscombe, Dorset, dubbed 'Millionaire's Row', which was designed by award-winning architectural firm Seven Developments.
The home has seven bathrooms, five bedrooms, an outdoor pool, a cinema and a gym.
Neighbouring houses include a property named 'Moonraker', which has been short-listed as a possible location for the next James Bond film.
Liam's neighbours will include England football player Sol Campbell and 'Notting Hill' actor Hugh Grant.
The rocker will move into the property with his fiancée, All Saints singer Nicole Appleton, and their four-year-old son Gene.
One resident told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "I can see why Liam would want to buy here. It's special and lots of families have come here after getting stressed by life in the city."
