Dame Helen Mirren seems to have a knack for transforming homes and interior decorating. The actress and her husband recently turned their Italian holiday home into an extraordinary mansion filled with eco-friendly features.

Five years ago, Mirren’s home in southern Italy was just an abandoned farmhouse that was described as a “tumbledown” and “uninhabitable,” but after spending a little less than $400,000 in restorations, it’s now a remarkable piece of real estate.

In addition to having enormous fire places and a dungeon, it also includes solar panels for heating and hot water. It is also surrounded by native olive trees, rose bushes and a vineyard. Reportedly, the home has other eco-friendly amenities, but no further details were reported.

The 500-year-old home is less than one mile from the Mediterranean, and even has stone walls and turrets. It also once belonged to a prince, which seems perfect for the Academy Award winner, who won an Oscar for her lead role in “The Queen.”

It definitely sounds like a home that’s fit for a queen.
