This spectacular piece of architecture isn’t even built yet, but that didn’t bring down its price any. An innovative eco-friendly home in a Cotswold nature reserve has been sold for a world record £7.2 million for a country house. The eco-friendly Orchid House, built on a lake in a privately-owned Cotswold (U.K.) nature reserve, is predicted to produce more energy than it uses. The house, which was designed by Sarah Featherstone, won’t be finished until approximately 2011. If the owners ever put it up for sale one has to wonder if anyone else would pay so much for something so strange.
