Man Spends $230,000 Turning 700-Year-Old Cave Into A Modern …
Location Wyre Forest, nr Kidderminster
Businessman Angelo Mastropietro spent 8-months transforming a 700-year-old cave in the Wyre Forest in Worcestershire into a modern home, complete with running water, underfloor heating and even high-speed WiFi.
Most surprising of all, he took on the project single-highhandedly, without hiring outside contractors. Everything from carving, cutting, drilling into the sandstone hillside including excavating 70-tons of stone by hand had to be carefully planned.
MS was triggered by health and lifestyle and that was the catalyst I needed to remind me that I needed to be mindful of my health and be respectful of my lifestyle. I wanted to be in a place where I had a happier and healthier life. It s in a beautiful location, it s uplifting, it makes you feel good, it s very relaxing. While you are a mile from the nearest pub or supermarket, you re a thousand miles back in history, said Mastropietro.
