Red Gary Neville goes green with 'Bond villain' underground house: Amazing pictures
Arch red Gary Neville is going green with an amazing underground house.
The Manchester United defender's £8m new gaffe will be built below the Bolton countryside and feature all manner of eco-gadgetry.
These incredible artist's impressions are from the original drawings made to his specifications by Make Architects of London.
Gary currently lives in a modest £6m, 12-bedroom pile at Top O' The Knotts, Bury with its own private golf course, cinema, swimming pool, stables, gym and flowerbeds spelling out MUFC.
Now he's is looking to downsize with the sci-fi 'earth shelter' and has submitted the plans - which include a Japanese-style rock garden with water features - to Bolton council.
The Neviller will make back some of the fortune he's spent on planning the new house in energy costs. His subterranean lair should be entirely off-grid, the stable subsurface temperature of the air providing heating while solar panels and a wind turbine take care of lighting and appliances.
However, earth shelters are notoriously susceptible to flooding - which might be a problem for Gary if he ever has to watch Liverpool or Manchester City win a trophy.
Still, he can always sell up to a Bond villain.
Neville was recently spotted by our own Robbie Savage driving an environmentally-friendly Pruis car. Read his hilarious column here: Why Gary Neville gave me the finger
