Inside Sir Alex Ferguson’s £3.5 million Cheshire mansion that’s currently on the market

Surprisingly understated for a legend, tbh.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s home is currently on the market and still looking for a buyer… but it comes with a hefty £3.5 million price tag.

The former Manchester United manager – who was at the helm of the club for nearly three decades from 1986 – 2013, and led the team to countless domestic and international victories and titles during his time – put the property in the prestigious town of Wilmslow up for sale towards the end of November last year.

It’s thought that he chose to list the stunning Cheshire home following the sad passing of his late wife, Cathy, according to the MEN.

Sir Alex and Cathy were married from 1966, all the way until her death in October 2023.

The couple were said to have moved into the five-bedroom detached family home from the nearby Cheshire town of Macclesfield back in 2010, and it was so the then Red Devils’ boss could make his daily commute to the club’s training ground a little shorter, reports CheshireLive.


The pair lived in their beloved home for more than a decade, before Sir Alex decided to sell up a month following her death.

The property has been listed on the market with a Guide Price of a whopping £3.5 million, but despite having so much to offer to prospective buyers, it still remains in search of new owners.


So, what does the £3.5 million price tag get you then?

Well for starters, like we mentioned, it’s located in the heart of the highly-desirable town of Wilmslow – which is often considered part of Cheshire’s famous so-called ‘Golden Triangle’ – and that means there’s an enviably-wide range of amenities, including local independent shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, all on the doorstep.

There’s also several well-regarded local schools, and some really convenient transport links across Greater Manchester and beyond, within an easy reach too.


Not only is it in Wilmslow, but estate agents, LY Property Consultants in Cheshire, claim it’s even occupying a prime position on one of the town’s most prestigious roads too, so that already goes quite some way to explaining the listing price.

Spanning approximately 7000 sq ft, and immaculately-presented throughout, the beautiful detached family home is positioned within what estate agents describe as a “very private, gated, and secure plot”, and right from the first glance of the pictures, it’s clear to see the home has been lovingly-maintained by the Ferguson’s during their ownership.

The property has several spacious reception rooms, five bedrooms, and six bathrooms to its name.

As well as boasting flexible and open-plan living accommodations that are light, spacious, and tastefully decorated, there’s so seriously stand-out features too – including a games room, a fully-stocked bar, and even a gym.

The outside grounds of the home are just as impressive as the inside is too.


To the front, there’s a private driveway and a garage providing off-road parking for several vehicles, while to the rear, there’s a good-sized stone flagged patio perfect for entertaining all year round, and a large lawned garden that is well-stocked with a variety of flower beds, and trees, plants, and hedgerows to provide a protective privacy screen.

Oh, and to top it all off, the property is also being offered to the market with no onward chain too, which is always a massively-attractive feature for those looking for a quick and (somewhat) easier sale.

Estate agents saying viewing is an “absolute must” to appreciate all that’s on offer.

So, if you like the looks of what you’ve seen, and you just so happen to have £3.5 million sitting pretty in your bank account ready to spend on a new home in Wilmslow, then you can get in touch with LY Property Consultants now and register your interest.
