Given his love for a kickabout, it's no surprise he built a place.

However, judging by Rod Stewart's £ 4.7 million mansion, football is far from the only sport that preoccupies him.

Not only does it have a croquet lawn, but the singer added an indoor pool, trampoline, and skate ramp.

Aerial photos show his listed 18th century Essex mansion after years of renovation and construction.

Sir Rod, 75, and Ms. Penny Lancaster, 49, finally have their dream home, which has ten bedrooms and is set on 46 acres. Durrington House, near Harlow, has impressive facilities such as four self-contained cottages, a walled garden, croquet lawn, gazebo and bell tower.

Sir Rod and his family moved into the property in 2016, three years after buying it for £ 4.65 million, and have since made extensive renovations.

The couple's sons, Alastair, 14, and Aiden, 9, are kept entertained thanks to the trampoline and 50-foot indoor pool.

Sir Rod received planning permission for the pool in the villa in 2017 after Alastair showed great interest in swimming. The pool house also has changing rooms, a hot tub, bar and dining area.

In 2016, the Celtic FC fan received permission to build the soccer field, but their application for floodlights was denied as it could cause light pollution.

Photos show the pitch with the flag of the Glasgow team as well as the couple's immaculate lawn with topiary and statues.

There is also a large ornamental lake to the front of the property and an ornamental pond in the walled garden to the rear.

In July, the couple received planning permission to place four ancient Greek-inspired statues in the four pillars of a classic portico overlooking the pond.

You need to apply for a building permit for changes to the property, as the house is a listed building.

Plans to excavate an existing walled garden and build terraces over the pond have been turned down to allow the banks to remain in a "more naturalized state". Sir Rod and Miss Lancaster, who split their time between Durrington House and their Florida property, shared a series of photos from the Essex mansion during the lockdown.

Miss Lancaster said in August, "We always feel very fortunate that this whole lock has more property and land to stretch and play sports on."

Sir Rod sold his former Essex property, the six-bedroom Wood House, last year for £ 4.1 million.
