Gary Neville was "heavily involved in the design process," his architects said
Footballer Gary Neville has applied to build a flower-shaped eco-friendly house in Greater Manchester.
The Manchester United star wants to build the 8,000 sq ft (743 sq m) four-bedroom single-storey home into a hillside in Bradshaw, Bolton.
The application to Bolton Council includes plans for a wind turbine, solar panels and ground source heating.
Make Architects say it would be the first zero carbon house in North West England, if permission is granted.
Stuart Fraser, partner at Make Architects, said: "The client has been heavily involved in the design process and is passionate about preserving the natural beauty of this area.
"It has been a privilege to be given a brief which has allowed us to truly test the boundaries of current sustainable thinking in terms of design and construction and to work along some leading experts in this field."
If planning permission is granted, work is expected to begin later this year.
