Raheem Sterling, the renowned English football player, has recently acquired a 3.5-acre plot of land in Ascot, Berkshire, for a sum of £2.3 million.
This opulent mansion worth £7 million is close to Chelsea’s Cobham training base.
As the land is part of the Crown Estate, Raheem will become a leaseholder, obliging him to pay an annual rent to King Charles, who retains the freehold of the land.
According to the UK Daily Mail, property experts estimated the lease to be about a few hundred pounds annually.
Sterling’s leasehold has 141 years remaining, with the option to extend at a future cost based on inflation and other considerations.
Aerial photographs show lush woodland surrounding the building with a new pool and construction vehicles on the terrace.

The building will have five bedrooms, an elegant central curved staircase surrounding a lift, an open-plan kitchen, a dining room, and a family area on the ground floor.
Other features include a drawing room, study, four en suite bedrooms with dressing areas on the first floor, a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a dressing room on the second floor, and a lounge with terrace access.
The basement offers a crescent-shaped swimming pool, a bar area, a sauna, a steam room, a cinema, and a bowling alley accompanied by an open-plan seating area and a central bar with an adjacent “aquarium.”
Additionally, a separate garage building with potential living quarters above is suitable for staff accommodation.

Sterling resides in a gated mansion valued at £6 million in Leatherhead, Surrey, along with his fiancée Paige Milian, their two sons, and his daughter from a previous relationship.
Sterling’s Surrey residence was unfortunately burglarised during the World Cup in Qatar last year, prompting his return to ensure the well-being of his family before rejoining the England squad.
