Former Oasis band member Noel Gallagher is hoping to create an 'oasis' of his own in Chalfont St Giles.
Mr Gallagher, who was a songwriter, guitarist and singer in the popular Britpop group, has applied for planning permission to build a summer house in his ten-acre gardens at his home in Nightingales Lane.
He plans to swap the rock'n'roll lifestyle for relaxing amongst wild flowers in the Buckinghamshire countryside. He has proposed a single storey octagonally-shaped structure where he can enjoy 'champagne supernova' and will be used by his family.
The timber building is to have a thatched roof - a world away from the Manchester streets where he grew up.
A council report states the summer house will not overlook his neighbours and will be screened by existing shrubbery - being more than 100 metres away from the wonderwalls of his house.
It states: "The family intend to enhance the existing shrubs and trees with more planting and native meadow flowers. The overall appearance of the summer house is designed to blend in with the surrounding trees and shrubs and create a refuge in the garden."
Last August Mr Gallagher quit the group after 18 years following a disagreement with fellow band mate and brother Liam. The band recently won a Brit award for best album of the past 30 years for their release '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?'
