Drogba’s £6.25m mansion for sale


Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has put his stunning Surrey mansion up for sale.

But any Chelsea superfan desperate to literally follow in their hero’s footsteps will need to stump up £6.25million.

The massive pad grand pad, which is protected by electric gates at the front, has six big bedrooms and seven breathtaking bathrooms for the owner to enjoy.

Down the fancy spiral staircase through the centre of the house, there are also no fewer than five reception rooms while the vast open-plan kitchen is made from wood and marble with built-in appliances.

And to top it off, there is even a staggering leisure complex within the 11,000-square-foot property.

That includes a jacuzzi, a sauna and a large indoor swimming pool that has gorgeous views across the beautiful lawned garden thanks to the bifolding doors.

The listing for Drogba’s house on Fine & Country says: “On the ground floor, five primary reception rooms are centered around a grand reception hall with sweeping staircase leading to all floors.

“To the front is a study and multipurpose reception room, and to the back is a sensational dual aspect drawing room of huge proportions, family room and large open plan kitchen, equipped with modern built-in appliances and central island for casual dining, leading through to a delightful high-roofed orangery.

“Set behind electric gates, the property sits on just under one acre of land.

“A large driveway offers ample parking and a two-storey, multi-vehicle garage which provides further accommodation with a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment.

“To the rear is a south-facing landscaped garden, with manicured lawns stretching out from a terrace area off the main house – a fabulous spot for relaxation and entertaining.”

The staggering house is located in the plush Crown Estate in Oxshott, near Chelsea’s Cobham training ground.

It is idyllically set in woodland which provides plenty of privacy but close access to the M25, A3, Gatwick and Heathrow Airports as well as some of the country’s most prestigious schools.

Drogba lived in the house during his second stint at Chelsea, which finished back in 2015, with his now ex-wife Lalla Diakite.

The couple split in 2020 and now Drogba has decided to put the mansion on the market.
