For those of you wondering exactly what £100,000/week might buy you, then this should give you an idea.
It's a footballer's house that's just been put up for sale. Take a virtual tour after the jump, and if you think that you know who this mystery footballer might be, do feel free to pipe up in the comments section…
The FRONT Of The House
The full frontal. Notice how big the garage is. It's probably bigger than your entire house.
Ahh, the shiny walk-in area. The first thing to assault your eyes on the way in. Those floors look dangerous, don't they? Perhaps wear some shoes with a decent grip.
The Swimming Pool
This is the view from one end of the pool. On a good day, that jacuzzi at the other end should be littered with beautiful local men and women, splashing around, having a bit of a drink and a sing-song.
Welcome to THE STAIRS. Note how they come with railings attached? Those are to stop you from falling over and doing yourself one heck of a mischief. Health and Safety also insists on them.
In the mood for the cinema, but can't be bothered to get dressed? No problem! The house comes with its own cinema, and a PIANO! Ideal for watching films like Leaving Las Vegas, or Milk. To name but two.
The kitchen comes complete with an impossible-to-shift counter in the middle. Thankfully, this thing looks excellent just where it is.
The Lounges/Dining Rooms
Fancy looking at four rooms at once? Then, great news, you're in luck. The above collage features two rooms where you can just kick back, get comfy, and play a bit of Pro Evo. And another two — one is the food eating area (in the corner of the kitchen), and the other is the dining room. A dining room?? How lah-dih-dah of you.
The Pool/Shower Room
Who's up for getting wet and wild? Everyone is, of course. And where better than in a luxury swimming pool? It's full of water all year round, and you can wash away the chemicals that are stinging your eyes in a magnificent his-and-hers shower room. Oops, did someone drop the soap?
The Gym/Games Room
Of course, all young men like two things - the stategic mind game, Snooker. And crunching those abs. This house comes complete with a really sexy gym, and a games room. Notice how there are TWO drum kits at one end of the room? That's a little doff of the cap to the glam rockers of old. Probably.
The Bedrooms and Bathrooms
So to the more sensual areas of the house — out of bounds to guests. That's right, it's the wonderful bed and bathrooms. The bedrooms are decked out with wooden floorboards which have yet to be carpeted, whilst the bathrooms are oily under foot. You might be wise to wear some slippers!
And that's your lot — get the hell out of this crib! Can you guess who's put it on the market?
