Adele is transforming her new house in to an "eco-friendly" home
The `Someone Like You` hitmaker - who was recently unveiled as Britain`s richest young musician with an estimated wealth of £20million - is having her beachside Brighton pad converted to be powered by solar panels.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Adele`s house is something to behold. She`s having loads of work done at the moment so she won`t move in for a while.
"But when she does, she`ll have one of the most eco-friendly houses in the area."
The 23-year-old singer is expected to move into the £2million home with boyfriend Simon Konecki - although their dream view of the sea has already been threatened by a neighbour`s planning application to build a swimming pool that would overlook them.
A property insider said: "This would be a nightmare for Adele. It may be she didn`t even know about it but I wouldn`t want to pay £2million then see a neighbour`s pool built outside my window. "The big factor in these properties is the uninterrupted 180-degree view owners have from the rear. I`d imagine she`s pretty annoyed."
