and England footballer John
Terry has bought another mansion in Surrey – meaning
that he now bought five mansions there in recent years, a Daily Mail report
The newspaper says that
Terry has spent £4.35m on an 18th century property in Cobham. The mansion has
seven bedrooms, an outdoor pool and tennis court and is set in eight acres of
woods and parkland.
The report says it is
unclear whether he plans to live in his latest purchase or whether he has
bought it as an investment. However, it says that since retiring from playing
football Terry has set himself up as a successful property developer.
In property, there is
something to be said for buying what you know – and the Surrey
mansion market is something John Terry seems to know very well. He is previously
reported as having made £20m on a property he purchased here after selling it
on to the Sultan of Oman. So, it would not be at all surprising if, at some
point, he turns a healthy profit on his latest acquisition.
