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 ‘thoroughly modern manor house’, modelled on a bee
orchid found on the reserve, was sold off-plan last week to an
anonymous buyer.

The size of an average semi, the cost works out at 3,000
per square foot.

The country home has been sold for a world record of 7.2m
to an anonymous buyer

Brad Pitt has looked at the plans for Orchid House, while Kylie
Minogue has stayed at the estate.

It is hoped the home will produce more energy than it uses, with
an underground heat pump and geothermal heating
