Having left Manchester United very nearly 11 years prior, it's nothing unexpected that worldwide soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is prepared to say goodbye to his home in the rich English town of Alderley Edge, only 15 miles from his previous playing ground at Old Trafford.
Mr. Ronaldo, who currently plays forward for Italian club Juventus, recorded the five-room, three-story block house on Monday for £3.25 million (US$4.1 million), as indicated by posting records.
The Portuguese footballer is set to take a £600,000 loss if it sells for that asking price. Mr. Ronaldo, 33, purchased the house for £3.895 million over a decade ago, according to a title document filed with the Land Registry in 2007.
Images of the house reveal Mr. Ronaldo’s surprisingly Gothic taste in furnishings. The spartan decor left in the house is almost exclusively black, including a black shag and cowhide rugs, a plush charcoal-gray couch and even sheer black curtains.
There's additionally a huge number of extravagant conveniences, including a pool, roomy white-and-dark veneer kitchen (Juventus' group tones), a steam room, film room and a rec center, as per pictures of the house, which is posting with nearby land organization Benson Bunch. The business didn't return a solicitation for input.
There are three en-suite rooms altogether, including an enormous expert suite with two connecting restrooms and a stroll in storeroom.
This is the second time the Portuguese footballer has showcased his previous English home. The property originally hit the market in 2013 for £3.75 million, as per an old posting for the home.
As this is coming after Portugal were knocked out of the Euro 2020, Mr. Ronaldo, who left Manchester United in 2009, couldn't be gone after remark.
