Cristiano Ronaldo is preparing to say goodbye to his house in the wealthy English community of Alderley Edge, which is only 15 miles from his old playing field at Old Trafford. Ronaldo left Manchester United over ten years ago, so it should come as no surprise.
The five-bedroom, three-story brick property was advertised by Mr. Ronaldo, a forward for the Italian club Juventus, on Monday for £3.25 million (US$4.1 million), according listing documents.
If the property sells for the asking price, the Portuguese footballer will suffer a £610,000 loss. According to a title record submitted to the Land Registry in 2007, Christiano Ronaldo, bought the home for £3.895 million over ten years ago.
Pictures of the home show Mr. Ronaldo’s unexpectedly Gothic taste in furniture. A black shag and cowhide rug, a soft charcoal-gray couch, and even sheer black curtains make up the majority of the little décor that is still in the home.
Other than that, the house has pretty classic features like large windows, light stone-tile flooring, and hardwood.
Images of the home, which is listed with neighborhood real estate firm Benson Bunch, show a number of opulent features, including a pool, a roomy kitchen with white and black lacquer (the colors of Juventus’s squad), a steam room, a movie theater, and a gym. When contacted for comment, the brokerage did not respond.
In all, there are three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, including a large master suite with two adjacent bathrooms and a walk-in closet.
It’s the second time Christiano Ronaldo has advertised his old English residence. According to a previous ad for the residence, the property initially went on the market in 2013 for £3.76 million.
It was unable to reach Ronaldo, who departed Manchester United in 2009, for comment.
