Coleen Rooney Teams Up With Wives Of Noddy Holder And Wes Brown To Tackle Housing Development

Recommended Posts

Coleen Rooney wants to block plans to build 15 new homes next to her £5million mansion.

Before jetting off on a ­sunshine break to Barbados without husband Wayne last week, Coleen wrote to officials to say the development would ruin their pretty village.

Coleen and Manchester United captain Wayne have made their family home – dubbed Rooney Towers – in Prestbury, Cheshire, which has one of the highest percentage of ­millionaires in the country.

Coleen, 28, argues the new homes would be on greenbelt land, would cause traffic chaos and irreversible damage to the lush Cheshire countryside which surrounds their home.

The Scouse beauty has been backed by fellow WAG Leanne Brown and her husband Wes, the former United defender who now plays for Sunderland, alongside Slade rocker Noddy Holder and his wife Suzan who also live in the exclusive area.

In a letter to Cheshire East Council planning chiefs, seen by the Sunday People,Coleen warned: “Let’s not ruin our village. The development would be in direct conflict with the national policy to protect greenbelt land.”

She added: “The development will mean more car journeys in to the village, which is already congested and unsuitable for the increased traffic.

“It will damage the special landscape character and ­appearance of the area.”

In addition to Rooney Towers, the couple also own a £5million villa in Barbados where Coleen had taken sons Kai, four, and one-year-old Klay last week to avoid the dismal British weather. [more at link...]

Coleen Rooney... about as classy as a turd in a swimming pool [and that gives me an idea :D ]

Manchester United footballer Wes Brown has put his five-bedroomed Cheshire mansion up for sale for £4.5million.

The 30-year-old defender, who helped design the Prestbury property, has decided to move out of the house with wife Leanne Wassell and their two young daughters and look for something 'a bit more upmarket'.

Complete with a decadent cinema room, the mansion also has a vast spiral staircase, a leisure complex and a sound-proofed music studio.

It even has a swimming pool with a glass roof that looks up into the amazing kitchen.

A source told the Metro: 'This has got to be one of the most bling homes with the glass floor. He would do back stroke and wave to his wife Leanne while she was in the kitchen.’

On the same street as Wayne and Coleen Rooney's house in Alderley Edge, the property is the perfect choice for any wannabe WAGs with a few million to spare.

Still for sale..?

Long time since the price was last cut on this listing; last cut down to Guide Price £3,250,000

I think Prestbury is seeing some HPC weakness. It's a bit too far out for me into rural... all those dark country lanes at night too. Not sure where Jessica Lawlor crashed, but reports have suggested she was on her way home. I worry a bit too much, but would prefer younger family not to take additional risks with driving, having to do drive on rural dark roads on way back from work.

Still, it's a prime area, but with signs of prices softening (in my view) partly because too few 30 year olds have housing opportunities at better value, paying landlords... spiralling down weakness for other parts of the economy. They should be pleased more homes to be built and bring some more people to the village, if the new houses slightly more affordable for some.

“There are more than 180 properties for sale in Prestbury – houses in all price ranges and therefore there can be no ­justification in building for housing need while these ­properties remain empty.”

The application by Harvey Wood Investments Ltd is due to be decided next month and has received more than 60 ­letters of objection from ­residents who last week held a heated public meeting to ­discuss the proposal.

No, she's absolutely right about the "damage to the lush Cheshire countryside".

But fortunately for her, it's not irreversible.

The Council could start by demolishing her mansion, to restore her strip of "the lush Cheshire countryside" to what it was before it was "concreted over".

Yay!

So when can the Council make that demolition appointment, Coleen?

You'd need to pay me to live in that

Without the stupidity of the majority of Brits these people would still be living in a 2 bed council flat.

"these people". Are you Lord Snooty by any chance? Maybe the peasants truly are revolting...

Al I can say is it's a good job for Wes Brown that his pay is not performance related.

Couldn't help contrasting that monument to materialism with the mud huts the West africans are living in. Ill divided world.

I wondered whether the grand piano is ever played or if it is just an ornament for the hall ?

If it was played I would have thought it would not be under the stairs.

I have a feeling it is emulating a 'style'.

And, with the caveat that everyone smiles for the camera

About the only thing Wes Brown could tackle to be fair.

I take it this is Wes Brown's second home, as he plays for Sunderland, otherwise its a hell of a commute...

it's a bit rich that these nimbys should be complaining about a bit of development. when they've knocked down a house and put up a massive ugly house. and wes brown wants to move to something a bit more upmarket, he would'nt know what upmarket was even if it hit him on the head.

houses in the area over 1.5 mill are struggling to sell, the only buyers over that are footballers and their advisers are telling them to rent, because next season they might be moving to spain.

Also perhaps because house prices in a hyperbubble?

Scott Sinclair (footballer) was renting in Prestbury. Artcle I read in Daily Mail... quite a few comments about 'wasting money renting' from the complacent HPIers.. the no flinch from hyperinflated values (the victims for believing in forever HPI who need protecting and my family and friends needing to forever carry, applaud the bailouts, for we dumb renters ).

Prestbury is heading for a big HPC slide in values from this point - imo. So many mansions on market. Prestbury Cheshire.. I track it anyway, but ran a RM search earlier... something like 220 properties on market, something like 50 under £500,000 and some of them duplicates, com-props, and retirement/sheltered housing.

straydogs -Manchester, 2 years ago

Why would anyone rent at £6500/month? Better to get a mortgage I'd have thought. - Mark, Wroxham, 2/10/2012 19:09

---Wrong wrong wrong Mark. You're what is wrong with this country. HPI mad. "Buy at any price whatever the circumstances." Some of these mansions in the nicer parts of South Manchester are seeing their asking prices being cut in increments of £250,000 on Rightmove. Last one I saw came on the market at £3,750,000 in 2010, and is now back on at "Offers over £2,000,000. Not buying but renting at £6,500-£10,000 a month gets you a lot of time when you've saved £1 3/4 million from not buying at stupid peaky asking prices. With the landlord responsible for maintenance as well. And there's horizon for much deeper falls to come.

Then there's one footballer who has just left his rental after 18 months or so. If he'd bought it at asking price 2 years ago, well it's had its price cut around £750K since then. Renting good enough for him too.

Landlord was originally trying £9500pm.

Previous listing when landlord trying to sell it:

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-17427114.html

22/03/2014: Price changed: from '£2,795,000' to '£2,350,000'

28/04/2012: Price changed: from '£2,995,000' to '£2,795,000'

20/12/2011: Price changed: from '£3,250,000' to '£2,995,000

18/11/2010: Initial entry found.

Who is the dumb renter?

This appears to be it, but a problem with 'Currently on market' link, leading to a different mcmansion.

Sale Date: 01 Jul 2008. Price Paid £2,475,000

Sale Date: 04 Apr 2005. Price Paid: £1,700,000

Sale Date: 19 Jun 2002. Price Paid: £1,135,000

Reconfirmed with zoopla - with archived listings. (The owner has done a Tempt Me lol - probably done when asking price was higher, hopeful for the HPI riches from all the other HPI forever buyers... who don't stop paying higher prices year after year, until buyers do suddenly dry up..)

Still a rental as well...

Recently gone let agreed (any voids between tenants?). Hopefully the landlord subsidising another renter in a house price market that is on the edge of a big fall (imo).

The other problem with prices over 1.5mill, is that the local entrepreneurs or people that traditionally would have moved to the area long term, do not see value for money, so are reluctant to jump in, because the prices have been inflated by developers to hook the footballer/get rich quick payday loan sort of punter.

I think this is the first time ive ever read anything about this bland looking women and its good to see she is sticking to the English tradition of looking down on anyone not as successful as themselves and needing them to keep her away from her.

Maybe she expects the masseurs and manicurists to commute many miles to the area she must have relatively recently moved to.

No doubt brought up as socialist scousers.

...... It's a bit too far out for me into rural... all those dark country lanes at night too. .......

...Prestbury is urban suburbia ...the darkness is due to the 'village' not having street lighting ....seems to be catching on in other areas as a cost cutting venture .... :rolleyes:
