Former Manchester United Star Paul Scholes Is Selling His 7-Bedroom Gated Compound
Paul Scholes, a former Manchester United and England soccer star, is selling his impressive mansion, which has a soccer pitch and putting green. On Monday, the luxurious seven-bedroom gated compound in Grasscroft, Greater Manchester, was listed for £3.85 million (US$4.9 million).
According to Kirkham Property, this 13,000-square-foot property was completely renovated in 2015. The agency did not immediately respond to property comments.
This mansion’s open-plan kitchen, dining, and family room is a sports fan’s paradise. The residence’s double-height entrance hall, statement staircase, sophisticated lounge with bar, well-appointed games room, and elegant formal dining room add to its grandeur.
Leisure facilities are on the lower ground floor, making it a relaxing retreat. A heated pool, steam room, fully equipped gym, and state-of-the-art home cinema are available to residents.
The property’s landscaped gardens reflect nature’s beauty. Patios make outdoor dining enjoyable. A putting green and tee net are available for golfers. A five-a-side football pitch and netball area provide endless sports and outdoor activities at the mansion.
Paul Scholes’ impact on soccer is undeniable, regardless of the property’s duration or price. The Manchester-born midfielder left an indelible mark on football during his 20-year career with Manchester United. In 2013, Scholes retired, ending an era for the club and its loyal fans.
His ownership of Salford City F.C. shows his continued love for the sport. Scholes, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, and Phil Neville invested in this Manchester team in 2014. Each owns 10% of the club, while Peter Lim owns the rest. David Beckham bought a 10% stake from Mr. Lim in 2019.
Mr. Scholes was unavailable for comment on the sale of his mansion, but his soccer legacy remains. The Daily Mail highlighted the mansion’s luxury and amenities when it first listed it.
Sports fans and luxury homebuyers may be interested in this magnificent property. This gated compound in one of Greater Manchester’s most prestigious neighborhoods offers a unique opportunity to live in luxury and leisure.
