After being a footballer all your life, it is not surprising if you wish to venture into a third business after your retirement. From practicing every day, putting in the hours, traveling around the world, it becomes difficult to come to a sudden standstill post-retirement. It is no news that John Terry is associated with the real estate business, the defender has been in it for a long time now.
Contrary to most other retired footballers, John has had very little time on hand as he has been extremely occupied in the real estate business. Before retiring from competitive football, John Terry drew a salary of £170,000 a week.
From being a footballer, he is now known to the people of London and Surrey as one of the top-notch real estate tycoons. He has also invested a large amount of time and money into his new venture. He already has property deals worth £20 million. Most recently, he received permission to demolish his mansion and make two abodes in their place. This move is set to fetch him another £20 million. Let us take a look at his portfolio (no soft promotions here!)
Most recent £20million venture
Estimated profit: £20m
Attractions: Private gym, bar, games room
The Chelsea legend is set to demolish a villa to build the two homes, the plan (as seen above) is ready. The two new luxury homes will be six-bed and four-bed respectively. Their main attractions are the kitchen diner, games room, drawing room, family room, and a bar. The bigger one will also have space for a pool and a personal gym.
Former Family Home
Estimated profit: £2.8 million
Attractions: Gym, cinema room, and astroturf
The mansion that was earlier the home of John Terry and his family is now a part of the former footballer’s real estate profile. It is back on the market for £6.8 million. After buying it for £2.2 million in 2002 and then selling it for £5 million in 2013. Terry also installed an astroturf and indoor swimming pool, enhancing the value of the property.
£16 million super mansion
Profit: £10 million
Attraction: Sauna, swimming pool, and fishing lake
Terry bought this house extremely close to his old one which is a clear hint at how much he loved the location. He bought the home for £1.8 million in 2007 and spent around £4 million on the renovation. The house also brings in comfort and a secluded feel as it is only visible from the air and has a secret entrance for staff as well. However, the footballer then sold the property as he had an offer he could not refuse.
Another new addition to John Terry’s portfolio is Colin Montgomerie’s mansion and it is worth £5 million. It is clear that John has formed a steady business and is making heaps of profits from the same.
