NICKY BUTT has finally sold his £5.5million mansion – nearly two years after putting it on the market.
And the buyer is in for a treat with a luxury pad complete with an indoor swimming pool and a cinema room.
The former Manchester United midfielder, 46, listed the property for £7m in April 2019.
Butt and ex-wife Shelley Barlow bought the house in the exclusive Hale area of Greater Manchester for £4.4m in 2007 while he was at Newcastle.
But after he slashed £1.5m off the asking price last summer, estate agents Gascoigne Halman and Jackson-Stops revealed Butt has accepted an undisclosed offer.
The listing is now stated as ‘sold subject to contract’.
Butt’s detached red-brick home is set in almost an acre of private gardens and has six bedrooms, four of which have en-suites, as well as a large family bathroom and two main reception rooms.
The kitchen is high spec, surrounded by modern sofas, while the garden is complete with a patio for dining and a children’s play area.
The triple garage is fitted out for three cars but it is the pool area and cinema room that seal the deal.
An open gym space overlooks the pool below while the cinema room is kitted out with comfy seats and a bar.
