If you’re looking for a truly unique example of subterranean splendor, check out green enthusiast and British football star Gary Neville’s house-to-be. Hidden under the ground, save for the petal-shaped windows that flood the interior with light, the one-story, nearly 8,000 sq ft structure was designed to keep energy consumption to a minimum. Oh, and did we mention that it looks like a flower?

I’d enjoy seeing this house, but I don’t think that I’d want to live in an underground house.
