Sir Alex Ferguson finally sells his luxury mansion after legendary ex-Man Utd manager slashed £250,000 off the price

SIR Alex Ferguson has sold his luxury mansion after he slashed £250,000 off the asking price.

The former Manchester United boss, 82, put the £3.5million property in Cheshire on the market following the death of his wife Cathy.

His five-bedroom home comes complete with a stylish open plan kitchen and games room.

But after struggling to shift the property, he reduced the price to £3.25m in February in a bid to offload it.

The property has now been snapped up by an unknown buyer.

Photos of the mansion reveal a dazzling hallway chandelier, en-suite bathrooms and perfectly manicured lawns.

The games room is decorated with art work, oak bookcases and a snooker table while a unique 'Ferguson clan' tartan carpet features on the staircase.

Estate agents acting on his behalf said: "This impressive, deceptively spacious detached property is situated on one of Cheshire's most desirable roads."

His time living at the house was not without any controversy.

In 2020, he lost a planning battle after he strongly objected to his neighbour's application to demolish a two-storey house and build a three-storey mansion.

He claimed his privacy would be affected by removal of trees which would also impact the character of the area.

He said the removal of trees was "likely to have a significant impact on the character of the area and the existing privacy standards afforded".

But planners decided to allow the scheme to go ahead.

Sir Alex, who also managed Aberdeen, moved to a £1.2m house near to his son Darren so he could be closer to his grandchildren in a Cheshire village.

Darren Ferguson, 51, has had his own career in management and is currently in his third spell as Peterborough boss.

He has also coached the likes of Preston North End and Doncaster Rovers.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, 51, is also trying to shift a property on the same road as Ferguson.

He put his mansion up for sale with a £4.2m price tag which was reduced to £4m in January.

It comes with five bedrooms, a gym, landscaped gardens, a double garage and a bar area as well as CCTV, underfloor heating and speakers in the ceilings.

Sir Alex was manager at Old Trafford from 1986 to 2013 after a spell managing teams in Scotland, including Aberdeen, St Mirren, as well as the national team.
