Gary Neville puts his sprawling country manor up for sale!
Manchester United defender Gary Neville has put his modern country estate on the market.
Alexander House’ comes complete with up to seven bedrooms, a three-storey atrium dining hall, high spec kitchen and a newly modernised two bedroom cottage perfect for staff or when the Beckhams come to stay. If all this space isn’t enough to keep you entertained, the extensive leisure suite is likely to tickle your fancy with an indoor swimming pool, gym, cinema, and a games and entertainment room.
The mansion is set in 90 acres of beautiful Harwood countryside, offering panoramic views and landscaped gardens. The manor even boasts its very own ‘UNITED’-shaped shrubbery – so probably not one for City fans!
Dad of two, Neville, bought the property back in 2005 and has since developed into a magnificent family home where he held his wedding reception to wife Emma two years ago. It is unclear how much the star paid for the developments or how much the property is expected to sell for, but reports suggest that offers will be around £6million.
Although the footballer is selling the property along with 6 others, collectively known as Neville-Neville land, he still wishes to remain in the area if his plans for a Teletubbie-style eco home are reconsidered. The move comes just weeks after plans for his ‘flower house’ were denied.
The former England star had hoped to build a 4 bedroom, carbon-neutral bunker along with its own wind turbine; with the kitchen in the stigma of the flower and bedrooms, playrooms and swimming pool in the ‘petals’, the structure was praised by green activists. While Bolton Council recommended approval because of its ‘exception design’ and ‘sensitive relationship with the landscape’, the planning committee voted against the venture.
