John Terry slashes half a million off £5.5m asking price for his luxury Surrey mansion

John Terry has slashed half a million pounds off the price of his mansion because of the coronavirus pandemic after putting it on the market for £5.5million in March.

The six-bedroom home, which Terry bought from golfer Colin Montgomerie for £2.5 million, has a pool and an outdoor kitchen. 

His wife Toni is reportedly keen to move away from the six-bedroom Surrey house, after it was targeted by burglars in 2017.

Their family home was burgled by four Arsenal fans back in February 2017 after Terry, 39, shared an Instagram picture from the family’s skiing holiday. 

The burglars defecated at the foot of their bed during the £400k raid, while trashing the home.

Darren Eastaugh, 30, Joshua Sumer, 27, Roy Head, 28, and Oliver Hart, 25, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit burglary between February 1 and March 27.

The conspiracy involved seven burglaries across Surrey and Sussex earlier this year, with a total lost from all of them was £600,000. All four were jailed for a total of 27 years and 11 months at Kingston Crown Court.

Terry – who has a property empire in Oxshott, Surrey, thought to be worth £47 million – put the luxurious pad on the market.

The home, marketed by estate agent Savills, has already had £500,000 slashed from the price. 

The half acre plot – on the Crown Estate – is close to Chelsea’s Cobham training ground where Terry, 39, spent his entire playing career.

Terry splashed out funds on turning Montie’s putting green into a swimming pool and outdoor kitchen.

Savills said: ‘An imposing and substantial family home, situated in the prestigious Crown Estate, constructed by the multi award-winning developers, Royalton.

‘The property has been refurbished and interior designed throughout under the direction of top London interior designer Louise Bradley – to create a beautiful, adaptable and welcoming space for both relaxed family living and entertaining.’

The master bedroom – where it is thought the burglars stole wife Toni’s bags – is described in great detail.

The estate agent explained: ‘On the first floor, the galleried landing leads to the extensive and sumptuous master bedroom suite, with double doors to a balcony overlooking the landscaped rear gardens.

‘There is a large combined ‘his and hers’ dressing area and a luxurious en suite bathroom.’

Terry owns four properties in the Oxshott area of Surrey, and recently bought a new eight bedroom mansion to live in.

Terry and wife Toni splashed £4.35 million on the 18th century manor house, set in eight acres of wooded gardens.

Burglars struck the for sale home after the footballer posed for pictures on the slopes of the French Alps with his wife Toni, 37, boasting to his 3.4million followers that he was having a ‘great few days away skiing with the family’.

But while the couple happily shared photos and videos of their lavish holiday, they didn’t realise the posts had attracted the attention of a ruthless gang of prolific burglars.

The men spent hours ransacking the property, swiping designer handbags worth £126,000 and rare signed first edition Harry Potter books valued at £18,000. 

Referring to the Terry burglary, Judge Susan Tapping said: ‘It might have been a mistake to post a family photograph on social media to show he was away on holiday.

‘As a result his home was deliberately targeted and the master bedroom suite was ransacked.

‘They spent some time searching for items to steal. Not content with the original haul they returned with a third man and an angle grinder determined to get into the safe.’

Sentencing them at the time, the judge said: ‘Over a period of about one month earlier this year four of the defendants together with others unidentified, set out on a series of carefully planned burglaries.

‘By the time police surveillance was in place, some defendants were seen spending time looking for suitable homes to be targeted.

‘Large detached houses were only considered because of the expectation high value luxury goods would be available.

‘In fact it was a very successful campaign and during the the course of seven burglaries £600,000 worth of luxury items were stolen. Four of the defendants are experienced, if not professional burglars.’

She said the gang made away with nearly £400,000 in either items stolen or damaged out of the seven burglaries this was ‘most profitable’, and none of the items have been recovered.

Not all of the burglaries were at night and some were carried out while someone was in the house, including a recently widowed woman who found one of them in her kitchen.

The court heard she has now been left feeling ‘nervous and isolated in her own home’.
