pushing up daisies

Not sure that anybodies first choice of location for a home would be a cemetery. But this home owner thoroughly recommends is. Built in Highgate Cemetery London it took 10 years to get planning permission and build. Richard Elliot the owner a developer and photographer says "it not like living in a graveyard, its more like an enchanted forest"

The brief to the architect was to build a James Bond baddies lair, thoroughly masculine and modern with acres of polished concrete and Italian furniture. Features include an amazing kitchen roof that fully retracts.
I think the views from the house are to die for and I would imagine the neighbours are very quiet! I am not sure I have the patience to wait 10 years for a new home though
what do you think?
