Man Builds a Modern House In a 700-Years-Old Cave

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 700-year-old cave, carved into 250 million year old sandstone cliffs in the the Wyre Forest, into his dream home.

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 paralysed – and inspired him to seek a simpler life.
