Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is undoubtedly one of the greatest players of the Premier League era.
The legendary midfielder spent his entire career at Old Trafford between 1993-2013, scoring 155 goals in 718 appearances.
Scholes also won a vast collection of silverware during his illustrious career, including 11 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues.
One can only imagine how much Scholes would be worth in today’s market.
We’re talking well over £100 million.
Scholes would also have earned *a lot* more money had he been born 10 or 20 years later.
That said, it wasn’t as if Scholes earned a pittance during his career. He still made extremely good money at Man Utd.
We know this is true because he’s just put his seven-bedroom mansion on Rightmove - and it’s every footballer’s dream house.
The privately-gated mansion in the Greater Manchester area is worth an eye-watering £3.85 million and boasts its own football pitch, cinema and spa.
The property has also six bathrooms and reception rooms across three floors.
“Concealed away behind its gated driveway sits 'Parklands House' an impeccably designed property which is one of Saddleworth's finest,” the description on Rightmove’s website reads.
“Its pristine presentation really makes this property stand out and is a credit to the current owners who completely refurbished and redesigned the family home in 2015. Architect designed and now provide around 13,000 sq ft of pristine accommodation which can only be truly appreciated in person.
“The complete privacy of the plot allowed the architects to use large amounts of glass throughout the property giving it a modern look and creating synergy between the internal and external spaces with plenty of natural light. When viewing, it becomes evident the amount of time and consideration that has gone into this exceptional property.”
Let’s take a look at some of the photos…
Surrounded by picturesque countryside, Scholes’ mansion is very secluded.
Here’s the outdoor football pitch.
There’s also a putting range if you’re into your golf.
The interior is extremely modern and in pristine condition.
The stunning kitchen comes fitted with a minibar and high-end appliances.
A pool table sits in one of the many open-plan lounging areas.
And no footballer’s house would be complete without a swimming pool.
The L-shaped pool is accompanied by a sauna, steam room and sensory room.
There’s also a gym, of course.
While the master suite comprises separate ‘His’ and ‘Hers’ dressing rooms and en-suite bathrooms.
Basically, you’d never need to leave the house again!
