Dwight Yorke to sell home he shared with Katie Price for £2.1m

Ex-Manchester United star Dwight Yorke will finally sell the lavish mansion he shared with Katie Price after slashing the asking price by £100,000.

The 46-year-old’s six-bedroom mansion, complete with a swanky games room and a home bar, is now under offer for £2.1million after it sat on the market since July 2017.

The former Premier League striker had originally put the luxury 6,000 square feet home up for sale for £2.2million but without any buyers he was forced to drop the price by £100,000. 

Yorke had lived at the stunning property in the glamorous Alderley Edge neighbourhood of Cheshire with Price, 39, during their brief romance in 2001 and 2002.

But the pair had split by the time she gave birth to her first child Harvey in May 2002 and the model has since criticised the Trinidadian for his treatment of their 15-year-old son.

There is also a galleried reception hall, dining room, drawing room and garden room.

The home is L-shaped in design and the kitchen, breakfast and family area were refinished in a contemporary style with an open floor plan several years ago.

The exterior of the impressive property includes a detached triple garage, gated driveway and large lawned gardens.

Estate agents Stuart Rushton & Co. describes the home as: ‘A fabulous detached modern family house within walking distance of the village with wonderful 6,000 square feet of grand accommodation, designed for family living and entertaining.’ 

Yorke, who fired in goals for United between 1998 and 2002, secured a two-year deal working as a pundit for Sky News in 2011. 

Yorke has since been coaching and training young footballers, as well as giving encouragement and advice to players. He is still very active within the football community, regularly commenting and giving his opinion on happenings within the football community.

He seems to still be on rocky terms with his ex Katie Price, who slammed him for reportedly not seeing their 15-year-old son for ten years.

The two had enjoyed a brief romance in 2001 and 2002 before Katie became pregnant with Harvey, although after the footballer denied paternity, she was forced to undergo DNA tests to confirm he was the father.

Price responded to headlines in February of last year that Yorke had been denied entry to America because he had an Iranian stamp on his passport, prompting the athlete to claim he had been treated ‘like a criminal’.

Hitting back at Yorke, Price took to Twitter, writing: ‘Why don’t you fly to West Sussex Dwight. The door is always open. It’s been ten years Harvey has been waiting #d**k’.

She added: ‘Why doesn’t he fly to West Sussex Harvey has been waiting ten years .. Dwight knows the door is always open and I’ve NEVER stopped him seeing Harvey .. it’s NEVER to late.’

That wasn’t the first time Price blasted Yorke over his relationship with his child. 

In her book Reborn, the mother-of-five insisted Yorke was unwilling to accept the limitations of his son’s disabilities.

When Harvey was born he was diagnosed with the rare genetic disorder Prader-Willi Syndrome, among other health complications including being blind due to Septo-optic dysplasia while he is also autistic, has an underactive thyroid and diabetes. 

Harvey’s Prader-Willi Syndrome means he suffers with a chronic feeling of hunger, resulting in the fact he is prone to obesity.

The mother-of-five explained: ‘I’d explained Harvey’s condition to Dwight many times, but he refused to understand it and kept going on about him being fat.’
