Chelsea Skipper John Terry Buys £4.35m House From Golfing Legend Colin Montgomerie

The defender is making quite a name for himself on the housing market in recent months…

John Terry has made his third property transaction in just 14 months, buying another multi-million pound mansion in Surrey, according to the Daily Mail.

The Chelsea defender sold his house last year for £5.25m, and sold another property  to General Sultan bin Mohammad al-Naamani for £16m in January of this year.

The centre-back made multimillion profits on both of these investments, and will hope to do the same with his new pad, a £4.35m mansion formerly owned by golfer Colin Montgomerie.

His new house has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms and an annex with room for two staff, although this still represents a “considerable downsize” according to a source quoted in the Mail.

The house Terry sold for a colossal £16m had taken him almost 7 years to redo, and had been built as the Englishman’s “dream home”. However the astonishing offer from al-Naamani, a senior figure in the Omani government, was too good to turn down.

All of this wheeler-dealing has taken place in the village of Oxshott, Surrey, a short drive from Chelsea’s training ground at Cobham. The village is known for its rich and famous residents, including Terry’s teammates Didier Drogba and John Obi Mikel, and  tennis player Andy Murray.
