The pressures of modern life mean that most of us have probably dreamt at one time or another of fleeing to the hills. But real-life caveman Angelo Mastropietro has made his hermit dream a reality - by spending over £160,000 turning a 250 million-year-old cave in the Wyre Forest into his dream home. The completed house's features are anything but stone age - it even has WiFi!

The ambitious makeover captured the imagination of viewers when it was featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs in September. The 38-year-old, originally from Worcestershire, was living a high-flying life as the head of a successful recruitment company in Australia when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2007. The condition led to him being temporarily paralyzed - and inspired him to seek a simpler life.

This has to be one of the coolest houses in the world. Another plus side is that it seems that it was relatively cheap to make! Most houses now a days are a lot more expensive than what this man put into that cave house! Who says a cool house has to be expensive?
