Chelsea defender John Terry has made a huge profit on his house – without even putting it on the market.
The 33-year-old was offered £16million for his place in Surrey, just seven-years after buying the property for £1.8million.
Terry, who earns £170,000 a week at Stamford Bridge, spent an additional £4million on renovating the mansion to its current state, with nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, eight dressing rooms, an indoor swimming pool and cinema.
A spokesman for Terry said: “They have received a fabulous offer which they decided to accept.”
The property, in the exclusive area of Oxshott, also has a carp fishing lake within the grounds, as well as a wing for staff and guest annex for visitors.
The Blues’ skipper had the property built in the grounds of his old house, which sold last year for £5.25million.
And, whilst the Chelsea legend had planned to live in the current property for years to come with his wife and two children, he’ll now be looking to rent, the Daily Mirror claims.
