Ex Saints boss Nicola Cortese's home in Chilworth on market for £2.1m

Daily Echo: Cortese selling his home for £2.1m Cortese selling his home for £2.1m

Former Saints chief Nicola Cortese's six-bedroom house has been put up for sale - for a cool £2.1m.

The 5,100 sq ft property in Chilworth, built in 2009, is being marketed by Knight Frank in Winchester.

Mr Cortese, who earned more than £5m during his four-and-a-half-year tenure at Saints, including £1.9m in his last full season alone, bought the 0.76-acre property in 2010 and moved in with wife Alexandra and their two children.

The 45-year-old previously stayed in a £1.8m Chilworth mansion rented from Saints legend Francis Benali for nine months, but an argument over the lease led to a prolonged legal battle that saw the former left-back sue the club over unpaid rent and not properly maintaining the property.

The feud was eventually settled out of court last year.

Now after his departure from the club in January this year, it appears that Mr Cortese’s days on the city outskirts may also be up.

The house comes with six en-suite bathrooms, a dining room, orangery, terrace and five reception rooms described as “ideal for both informal family living and formal entertaining” by Knight Frank.

It has a designer kitchen and a gas-fired heating system providing under-floor heating, while electric gates and a video/intercom entry system keeps it secure.

There is also a utility room and office area with a bedroom above that could be used as staff quarters.

Mr Cortese enjoyed a reputation for getting good deals and that is set to continue if someone matches the asking price, which is over £300,000 more than he paid.

The Italian banker arrived at Saints in 2009 as part of the takeover by the late Markus Liebherr, whose intervention brought the club out of administration.

He was at the helm for Saints’ period of sustained success over the next five years, including its return to the Premier League, but he quit the club after a breakdown in his relationship with the Liebherr family.

I have contracts at a few Chilworth Addresses now and then and can say with confidence that the asking price for that property is exceptional value..... if he got that for £300K less then that was an incredible buy....

It would as they would get more Council tax (remember a house like this only pays 3 times as much as a Band B home) and they would be getting rent also, and there be the added bonus of housing 15 familys of the housing waiting list.

No its just your snobbery and others that will stop this from ever happening as they say money talks and righteousness walks.
6 bedrooms
4 reception rooms
6 bathrooms
Detached
Garden 0.76 acres
No mentions on how many Garages.
Council tax band is H (the top band) which is 3 times as much as a band B home (just under), You could fit 15, 3 bedroom council houses (band D) on that grounds easy, which would produce roughly 13 times more Council Tax plus rents, and 14 more familys homed.
The only retards are people like your self who's greed stop others from getting needed homes.

Indeed.

We should ask every educated person who has worked hard to afford a larger house to knock it down so we can build more council houses.

At least you and Mr Cortese have something in common - you both own your own houses.

Not Envy Shoong common sence, we need land to build more homes but we don't have the land to do so because of homes like this that are little used and over size just to house 1 couple and 2 children who are away more often living else where.
Its just inconsiderate people and there greed that stop others from being able to get a home for them and there children.

Didnt you say that you inherited your ex council house from your parents on the 'Right to Buy' scheme and you live in a 3 bedroom house on your own?
Sometimes Phil, our Peter likes to "forget" those little details.
No I did not say that Cyber but please do keep guessing your sure to get there one day. Correct you yet again the house was bought before Thatcher became PM, so that would be a no to the right to buy as the house was bought before then.
Correct myself here Phil not cyber, And with that I know phil is trying to stir things up as i know he was told right from the start that the house was bought in 1979.

Is he sharing the profit from the sale with KL as it was her money which paid for all the work on the place.
Bang on, I worked on this property (around £12,000) and guess who paid?

Even if your parents did not benefit from the 'Right to Buy' scheme, the 3 bed ex Council House you inherited is now worth about 20 times what it cost in 1979 so your inherited capital asset has enjoyed a considerable amount of capital growth.
Also being an owner occupier denies poorer families the opportunity of renting social housing.
Surely this all goes against your socialist principles
