Liverpool cult hero puts £4.6million Merseyside mansion up for sale

Former Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino has put his luxurious £4.6million six-bedroom mansion in Formby up for sale, finally drawing a line under his time on Merseyside.

The Brazilian departed Anfield nearly a year ago and, despite a somewhat turbulent time with Saudi Arabian club Al-Ahli, has recently reclaimed his starting position as captain, perhaps prompting him to part with the property now.

The stunning property is located in the seaside town of Formby, to the north-west of Liverpool. Known for its celebrity residents, it has been home to several Liverpool players and managers over the years, including Jurgen Klopp.

The mansion's description highlights its proximity to RAF Woodvale, making it accessible for private flying, too.

Eyewatering price tag

With direct access to the National Trust Pinewoods Nature Reserve and Formby beach, the property, listed on property portal Rightmove, boasts a price tag of £4.6 million, making it the most expensive property currently on the market in Formby, among 18 other seven-figure listings.

Described as "the epitome of refined living in a discreet and secure setting", the property spans over 10,000 square feet.

The private, detached mansion offers lavish amenities, including seven bathrooms, a home cinema, massage room, wine cellar and an eight-car garage equipped with a turntable.

Famous swimming pool

The property also boasts an indoor swimming pool complex with a steam room, shower room and bathroom.

Many Liverpool fans may remember this particular swimming pool for being the scene where teammate Alisson Becker famously baptised Firmino four years ago.

Fan favourite

As the footballer continues to settle into his new life in Saudi Arabia, the sale of his Merseyside abode signals a definitive conclusion to his chapter with Liverpool, where he is very much a fan favourite.

Firmino's departure from Liverpool was marked by heartfelt farewells from fans, including a memorable 20-minute serenade during his final match at Anfield.
