Sir Alex Ferguson's £3.5m mansion has been put up for sale on Rightmove

A Cheshire-based mansion owned by legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been put up for sale, it has been reported.

The property, based in Wilmslow, has been listed at a starting price of £3.5 million.

The mansion contains five bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as a games room, bar and a private plot of land.

Estate agent Rightmove describes the property as follows: "This impressive, deceptively spacious detached property is situated on one of Cheshire's most desirable roads.

"Positioned within in a very private, gated and secured plot. Walking distance of Wilmslow town centre and the train station. This distinctive family home boasts approximately 7000 sq ft."

The house also has a living room, dining room, office/study and a gym, and the Daily Mirror report that it is Ferguson who has put it up for sale.

Ferguson lived in Cheshire throughout his time as Manchester United manager, which spanned almost 27 years between 1986 and 2013.

He continued to live in the county after his retirement from football management, and remains part of the staff at Old Trafford as a club director.

He was married for 57 years to his wife Cathy, who passed away last month.

In his first autobiography, Managing My Life, Ferguson wrote: "It has always been Cathy's way to stay in the background, but now it is time for her to accept some limelight.

"I gratefully acknowledge her role in any success I have had. Without her down-to-earth attitude to life and her unstinting supporting none of it would have been possible."

The pair had three sons together - Mark, Jason and Darren.

Jason runs an events management firm, and also directed Ferguson's 2021 documentary 'Never Give In'.

Mark, meanwhile, is a banker, whilst Darren is a football manager currently in charge of League One side Peterborough United, where he is in his fourth spell at the club. He has also had spells at Doncaster Rovers and Preston North End, meaning he has taken charge of teams in all three EFL divisions.
