Gary Neville’s former mansion with ‘Beckham suite’ on sale for £3m

Gary Neville‘s former mansion with an infinity pool, tennis court and ‘Beckham suite’ where his fellow Manchester United star lived around 1999 has gone on sale. 

Estate agent PLM Sales has asked for a price on application (POA), however the luxurious 35-acre property has previously been valued at around £3million.

Manchester United player Gary Neville converted a barn into the plush mansion in 1999 – the same year the Red Devils won the treble.

Part of the four-bedroom house, which has its own mini five-hole golf course in the grounds, is known as the Beckham Suite, as David, 45, lived there for a year when his wife Victoria, 46, was away.

Neville moved out of the house in Bolton, Lancashire, in 2003, but still owns land nearby where he tried to build his Teletubby-style eco house.

In an interview, Gary admitted that while Becks was staying the former England captain would do all the cooking.

He told The Guardian in 2014: ‘I roomed with David Beckham and when I had my house in Bolton, David would stay when Victoria was away, and he’d make food for me all the time. 

‘Stir-fries with noodles and vegetables and pasta dishes with sauces – a lot of pasta.’

In the 2000 documentary ‘The Real David Beckham’, Becks is filmed cooking in the mansion’s kitchen and saying: ‘We’re totally different.  

‘Gary would rather go home and have a quiet night in whereas I’d rather be dashing about the Trafford centre or Tesco’s.’

When asked if his home is a ‘refuge’ and whether other players stay there, Gary says: ‘No, nobody stays here, just him.’

The property’s illustrious history is on show as soon as buyers walk through the door, with two wooden carved lions on the stairway bearing the Manchester United and England crests. 

The 9,900 square foot mansion has £1million worth of furnishings from bespoke British designer Clive Christian.

David Beckham: ‘Gary would rather have a quiet night in whereas I’d rather be dashing around Tesco’

In the 2000 documentary ‘The Real David Beckham’, Becks is filmed cooking in the mansion’s kitchen and saying: ‘We’re totally different.

‘Gary would rather go home and have a quiet night in whereas I’d rather be dashing about the Trafford centre or Tesco’s.’

In the footage, Becks is then heard asking for the whereabouts of a wooden spoon, with Gary unable to find one.

The camera operator asks ‘are you very familiar with your kitchen Gary?’, to which he replies: ‘No not really. It’ll be the only kitchen in the world without a wooden spoon.’

Beckham then comments: ‘We used to share rooms when we used to go away with the teams. 

‘It got to the point where Gary was going to bed at 9pm/9.30pm and I was watching the TV still on the phone to Victoria at 11.30pm/12am. 

‘Then he’d be up at 7am and I’d want to lie in until 10am/11am. So it didn’t really work out. Like an old married couple.’

While cooking, he jokes: ‘I don’t just come around to cook for you. I’m staying here, that’s why I’m cooking.’ 

Gary adds: ‘If Victoria goes away then I ask him to stay. He’s stayed about three or four times now for about a week. 

‘Although you did stay with Victoria once for a couple of weeks. And Brooklyn yeah.’

While laughing he says: ‘It’s always Brooklyn with her now!’

When asked if his home is a ‘refuge’ and whether other players stay there, Gary says: ‘No, nobody stays here, just him.’

The house has an integrated sound and music system, and residents can talk to anyone in a different room via an intercom.

It also has a £60,000 bar in a fully equipped entertainment room, which includes disco strobe lighting, karaoke equipment and a 6ft projector screen.

The swanky infinity pool is 12.5m by 7.5m and has a whirlpool which fits up to eight.

The security system is fit for celebrities such as David and Victoria Beckham, with all of the windows bulletproof alongside a full, remotely-monitored CCTV system. 

The bedrooms all have walk-in wardrobes and en-suites, while the master has its own special steam room. 

The plush gardens boast a golf course and tennis court in addition to 20 acres of farmland which are prime for grazing livestock. The double garage is big enough for the swanky supercars favoured by footballers.

Marilena Manfredi, of PLM Sales, said: ‘Meadow Barn is undoubtedly one of Bolton’s most elite residences occupying a private, secluded position in approximately 35 acres.

‘The house has undergone a comprehensive programme of modernisation whilst retaining many original period features.

‘Individually designed and tastefully presented throughout creating a breath-taking and luxurious home.

‘This four-bedroom home offers exceptional accommodation with six receptions, all bedrooms are equipped with walk-in wardrobes, swimming pool with jacuzzi, sauna and steam room on the first floor.

‘In addition there is a games room housing a snooker table and integrated bar with full sound and light system and cinema projection.

‘The extensive landscaped gardens enjoys open aspects further complimenting this appealing residence and sits within 35 acres of gardens, a four hole floodlit golf course and open hard tennis court.

‘Situated within its own private, gated grounds offering over 9,900 square feet of well proportioned, flexible accommodation affording the elegance and sheer decadence often sought after but seldom found.

‘The vendors with meticulous attention to detail and no expense spared have created this enviable family home.’

Neville made 602 appearances for Manchester United and won 85 England caps. He still lives near Manchester with wife Emma Hadfield and their two daughters.

The Mancunian still works with Becks, as the stars and their former teammates Nicky Butt, Phil Neville and Ryan Giggs are part owners of League Two outfit Salford City.

Neville is also a well-known pundit and commentator on Sky Sports. The right-back won the Premier League eight times, the FA Cup three times and the Champions League.

Barratt and David Wilson invest €45.5m in UK resi market

Voice Of EU

Harworth Group plc has sold two residential land parcel at its Waverley and Thoresby Vale developments to Barratt and David Wilson Homes, for a total consideration of €45.5m (£39m).

 

At Waverley in South Yorkshire, Harworth has competed a €33.8 (£29m) land sale which will see the delivery of approximately 450 homes, of which over 30% will be affordable. This represents Harworth’s largest-ever serviced residential land sale by number of plots. The new homes will represent Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ fifth phase at the site and will be situated adjacent to both Highwall Park and the Waverley Lake, benefitting from unique water frontage in an area of the development known as Waverley Waterfront. Construction will follow a bespoke design code, devised in partnership between Harworth and Barratt and David Wilson Homes, that complements the existing Waverley development while maximising the amenity value of the area’s waterfront location. The development will include a pedestrianised promenade, further enhancing the site’s placemaking and connectivity.

 

At Thoresby Vale in Nottinghamshire, Harworth has exchanged on the sale of serviced land capable of delivering 174 homes, for €11.6m (£10m). This represents the second phase of the Thoresby Vale development, following the sale of two land parcels at the site to Harron Homes and Barratt and David Wilson Homes in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Alongside the new homes, Barratt and David Wilson Homes will provide a new surface water attenuation pond and a multi-use path and associated landscaping, which will enhance connectivity and link to the site’s planned primary school and local centre, for which site preparation works are currently underway. The sales conclude an active first half for Harworth’s residential developments, during which over 100% of its budgeted residential land sales for the year were completed, exchanged or under offer, and it also launched its first single-family Build to Rent portfolio.

 

Andrew Blackshaw, Chief Operating Officer at Harworth, commented: “Barratt and David Wilson Homes is a trusted and valued partner to Harworth, and we are pleased to be developing our relationship with these two significant land sales. Harworth is particularly well-placed in volatile markets as our serviced land provides housebuilders with a product which is de-risked and ready to build on from day one. The acceleration of both our Waverley and Thoresby Vale sites will see Harworth stepping through its strategy to take advantage of the placemaking and levelling up that these schemes ultimately bring to these communities. In addition, these sales will enhance the maturation of these socially diverse neighbourhoods when delivered alongside our recently launched single family Build to Rent product, Project Spur.”

 

Ed Catchpole, Joint Regional Director for Yorkshire & Central at Harworth, added: “Barratt and David Wilson Homes has a proven track record of high-quality housing delivery at Harworth sites, and these transactions will help to further accelerate the build-out and placemaking at Waverley and Thoresby Vale. Both sites are also set to benefit from additional investment which will see the creation of new Build to Rent homes and local amenities.”

 

Mark Cotes, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Midlands, said: “We’re thrilled to have secured the land for an extension to our Thoresby Vale development and will look forward to another opportunity to meet the growing demand for housing in Nottinghamshire. Our growing community in Edwinstowe will continue to provide new jobs for local people and we’ll be making further ecological and financial investments as the development progresses.”
