Grand Designs 'saddest ever' home now 'complete' but Kevin McCloud finds basic flaw
READ MORE: 'Saddest ever' £10m Grand Designs house 'gave viewers second-hand panic attack'The process took a strain on Edward's personal life, resulting in his separation from ex-wife Hazel.Channel 4 presenter Kevin McCloud returned to the site in a show aired on Wednesday evening to check on progress with Edward's art deco-inspired lighthouse.As he made his way to the front door, he noticed the 60ft infinity swimming pool right next to the four-storey-high lighthouse.The breath-taking scenery left Kevin jaw-dropped as he said: "It's the kind of thing only a billionaire oligarch could put up with a coast of Greece - Skiathos to my left, British channel to my right."Inside the house, Edward showed him the office and guest bedrooms, as well as the "storm room" - overlooking a 300-degree panoramic view of the Atlantic ocean.Kevin compared the house to a Bond villain's lair but he quickly sensed something big is missing."There's one room I haven't seen, that's the kitchen," he told Edward."It's not done, and it won't be done," Ed responded, saying the reason was the fact he property is being sold.He was told by the investors that he should sell the lighthoutse and the separate house altogether so that he could clear his debt."It has a guided price of £2million on The Eye and £8million on this, so a combined value of £10million," he added.Since it was put on the market, the house remains unsold and Knight Frank, which is marketing the property, describes Chesil Cliff House as "one of the UK’s most spectacular coastal homes".The property comes with three acres of grounds including a private beach cove and foreshore with panoramic sea views over Saunton Sands and Croyde Beach.For the latest breaking news and stories from across

Elon Musk claims strange new Covid strains are 'giving him kid naming ideas'
Elon Musk has claimed that the names of new Covid variants are giving him inspiration for the names of future children.The world’s richest man was responding to a story discussing how variants of Omicron are appearing differently around the globe, rather than just as a single strain.On Twitter, Shibetoshi Nakamoto – the pseudonym for the person behind the cryptocurrency Dodgecoin – posted a screen grab from the article along with a caption.READ MORE: Elon Musk says World War Three could be on the horizon as Putin prepares his nukes“Did Elon Musk name these new covid variants[?]” they asked.Musk appeared to deny that he was in fact the person behind the naming, but did it admit it was giving him inspiration.He replied: “Definitely giving me kid naming ideas”.Musk has a bit of a track record of unusual baby names.In May 2020, the Tesla founder shared a snap of his and musician Grimes’s newborn son.The accompanying caption revealed that the baby boy’s name was “X Æ A-12 Musk” – something that people still find impossible to pronounce.X Æ A-12 was the couple's first child together.Some people were convinced the name was pronounced as “X Ash Archangel”, in reference to a Lockheed aircraft that is nicknamed Archangel.On Twitter, one fan mused: "How do you pronounce that even? Like you can't just go "Come here X AE A-12", like is it pronounced John or Smith.
