Rumors are floating that Brad Pitt may be one of the buyers connected to the purchase of a wildly-designed new eco-home in Cotswold, England. The architectural plans and site for the building were recently sold for just over $14 million.

The design — which is based on a bee orchid found on the reserve where construction will take place — is expected to produce more energy than it uses, with an underground heat pump, geothermal heating and cooling, rainwater and solar and wind power. For the cash, the new owners (in about three years) will get a lakeside home complete with a glass-sided badger set in the garden. What exactly is a glass-sided badger?

Apparently, Pitt has taken a look at the plans for the Orchid Home — and sources are reporting that the anonymous buyer is connected to the entertainment industry. It’s all conjecture are this point, but with Pitt focused on green building, it’s not much of a stretch to tie him to the purchase. What do you think? Like the design?
