For those that follow football, the summer of 2021 was one to remember. From England reaching the final of Euro 2020 to Lionel Messi leaving Barcelona, there was plenty to talk and cheer about in pubs up and down the country.
Another big name on the move was Portugal star, Cristiano Ronaldo. Considered alongside Messi as one of the best footballers in the world, Ronaldo’s return “home” to Manchester United after 12 years of playing in Spain and Italy was one of the most remarkable stories of the summer transfer window.
Football transfers can happen so fast players must uproot their families to countries, where their services are required, in a matter of hours. This was the case for Ronaldo who stayed in a remarkable seven-bedroom mansion in Alderley Edge while completing his transfer.
This contemporary family house was built to state-of-the-art specifications with five bedrooms as part of the main house and a further two in a detached annexe on the 23-acre site. It also features three reception rooms, a cinema room, swimming pool, gym, sauna and jacuzzi - everything to match an elite footballer’s lifestyle.
The home also features a sizeable garage to house a collection of luxury cars and supercars. For the original horsepower, the home also has its own paddock for a family to keep their own horses on-site.

Reynaers aluminium doors and windows were provided as part of the project to help create a truly spectacular home.
The Concept Wall 50 was used as part of the facade of the building, a popular choice for architects and builders as it offers complete design freedom and transparency. The CW 50 has been used here sliding doors across the property as well as fixed glazing, which allows for incredible levels of natural light into the house.
Also used on the property are Reynaers CS 77 aluminium windows which give the property high levels of security, weather resistance and thermal insulation. With a range of inward and outward designs available, the CS 77 offers incredible versatility which can be tailored to an individual’s needs.
Ronaldo would have also used the CP 130 sliding doors which glide smoothly from open to close and features a slim-line mid-section interlock which maximises the glass area to bring more natural light into the home.
For outward opening windows, the property features the SL 68 that feature incredible levels of insulation and security. Once more the glass area of the window is maximised to bring the outside inside and offers spectacular views of the 23-acre grounds.
