Gary Neville to build “Teletubbies” house in Bolton
Gary Neville was a controversial footballer and it looks like he is still causing problems off the pitch as his plans for a eco-friendly “Teletubbies” house has been granted planning approval by Bolton Council.
Construction Enquirer report that the former Manchester United and England right back, 36, will build the futuristic four-bedroom property between Bolton and Bury, which has a petal-shaped design.
The “Teletubbies” nickname, arises from the popular children’s TV show that starred Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po and finished in 2001, as Neville’s new home will be underground and has a unique design.
Neville’s home will boast a flower-shaped design and have the kitchen in the flower’s stem, with the petals being bedrooms, a garage, a children’s play area and a swimming pool.
Bolton Council have granted planning permission for the house because of its “exceptionally high quality of design”. The plans will be referred to the Government Office for the North West, who will have the final say.
Neville retired from football last month after a 20-year career with Manchester United. Neville is also England most-capped right back, with 85 appearances for his country.
