Sir Alex Ferguson has put his stunning five-bedroom Cheshire mansion on the market for £3.5million weeks after the death of his beloved with Cathy – with whom he shared it for 25 years.
The Man Utd legend, whose wife of 60 years died last month aged 84, is looking to move out of the 7,000sf Cheshire property, which features a games room and a tartan carpet in the colours of the ‘Ferguson clan’.
Sir Alex has described Lady Cathy, who he met in 1964, as a ‘bedrock’ in his life. Last week, he joked she ‘would’ve gone mad’ after he spent £650,000 on two horses before winning the Bahrain International Trophy.
His ‘impressive’ detached home is situated on what estate agents are hailing as ‘one of Cheshire’s most desirable roads’ and is positioned within a ‘very private, gated and secure’ plot.
The home is ‘deceptively spacious,’ according to the property listing, and has a stunning reception area that is outfitted with a wrap-around staircase and grand chandelier. It’s being offered without a chain.
Sir Alex, 81, and Lady Cathy were married for 57 years and had three sons. The couple, who have 12 grandchildren and a great-grandchild, were living in the property together at the time of her death.
