Wayne and Coleen Rooney’s monster £20million mansion is starting to take shape.
The couple’s lavish family retreat in the sprawling countryside outside Manchester boasts six bedrooms, a football pitch and enough room to keep 15 horses.
They decided to make the move after a man tried to break into their £6million Cheshire pad in August 2016.
Wow factor: New aerial photos of Wayne and Coleen Rooney’s £20m 40 acre construction site show their ultra-luxurious mansion is finally starting to take shape, complete with six bedrooms, stables, 12m swimming pool and hot tub
New family home: The couple have been building their dream home in the Cheshire countryside, and recently welcomed their fourth son Cass
Now revealing new aerial photographs of the 40-acre site show their new home is well on its way to completion with the roof almost ready to go on.
When completed, the extravagant property will have two floors as well as a subterranean basement.
Inside will be a steam room, plunge pool, hot tub, gym, cinema room with ten seats, wine cellar and snooker room with bar.
The enormous building, which is still surrounded by scaffolding and building works, was first pictured during snowfall in December 2017.
Coleen gave birth to the couple’s fourth son in February.
Breaking their tradition of giving their children K-letter names, they named him Cass Mac Rooney.
The pair already have three sons: Kit, Kai and Klay.

Plans for the new home were already in place before Wayne’s drink-drive conviction threatened to rock their nine-year marriage.
He was caught behind the wheel of officer worker Laura Simpson’s Volkswagen in September 2017.
She later said that she planned to have sex with the England star if they had not been stopped by police.

Wayne and Coleen currently live nearby in Cheshire, but the family was shaken after an attempted burglary at the property in 2016.
Everton striker Wayne was playing in his testimonial match at Old Trafford at the time and Coleen was spectating with their children.
Robert McNamara was jailed for two years and eight months at Chester Crown Court after the incident.
He reportedly staked out the pad three times, making 260-mile round trips, because of his fascination with the former Manchester United and England footballer.

Coleen Rooney statement after 2016 burglary attempt
Mrs Rooney said: ‘After it happened it caused sleepless nights, worrying and watching security cameras fearing someone was there.
‘I feared for my children playing outside in the garden and still do.’
She said it caused anxiety when her husband was away and she no longer felt comfortable in the home unless a friend or family member was with her.
She said the couple had spent extra money on security since the incident.
Mrs Rooney said she and the family, including the couple’s sons Kai, Klay and Kit, had been at the tribute game at Old Trafford for what was meant to be a ‘night of celebration’, but she had returned home to find the house full of police.
She said: ‘I’m just happy the children were asleep and didn’t have to see what was going on.’
