Inside Sir Alex Ferguson's £3.5m Cheshire mansion that's still looking for a buyer

Sir Alex Ferguson is still looking for a buyer for his Cheshire home after putting it on the market last year. The legendary former Manchester United boss put his mansion in Wilmslow up for sale a month after the death of his wife Cathy.
The 82-year-old's wife passed away in October last year, aged 84, and left behind her husband, three sons, two sisters, 12 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. The pair met when the United manager was just 23, in 1964, and they got married two years later - with their union lasting 57 years.
Just a month after her death, in November, the former United manager put their five-bed property on the market with a £3.5 million price tag. Despite having lots to offer, the grand mansion still remains on the market today in the hopes of finding a new owner.

Sir Alex and Cathy reportedly moved into the home in 2010 from Macclesfield, so the then United boss' commute to the training ground would be shorter, reports CheshireLive. The couple lived in their beloved house for more than a decade.
The huge abode boasts five bedrooms as well as some luxury features including a games room - with a bar in it and 'Ferguson clan' tartan carpet - as well as a gym, an big open-plan kitchen and chandeliered hallway.
Found on one of Cheshire's most 'desirable' roads, the property itself spans around 7,000 square foot and also has a large, manicured garden to the rear.
On the ground floor, the home has a grand reception hall which leads to an open plan breakfast kitchen, a living room, sitting room, dining room, an office and a downstairs WC. This floor also has access to the large garage.
