Chelsea skipper John Terry has proved himself a property expert.

The Sunday Mirror says Terry is celebrating after the nine-bedroom mansion he remortgaged four times finally sold for £5.25million.

The Chelsea captain, 32, sold ­Wychwood House for more than its asking price to help finance a palatial new home called Willowfield – with nine bedrooms, eight dressing rooms and bathrooms, a cinema, pool and sauna.

It has been built at the end of his old garden, near the Chelsea training ground in Cobham, Surrey.

Terry had been ­desperately trying to sell his old home for three years.

He bought it in 2003 for £2.3m but, as he ploughed cash into the new property, he ended up with a mortgage debt of £4.6m.

He tried to sell it in 2010 for £5m and was advised to cut the price to £4.25m. However, thanks to an improving market, the house finally changed hands.

His agent said: “He always planned to sell and is pleased to have made money on it.”

A friend said: “John’s over the moon about his new house.

"It’s like something Michael Jackson would have owned. It’s a palace and very Hollywood.”
