Harry Redknapp’s incredible new solar-powered home is almost complete.
The former I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here champion recently sold his seafront mansion on 'Millionaires Row' in Sandbanks for £7 million.
Harry and his beloved wife Sandra called Sandbanks their home since 2015, and the couple’s four-story mansion, complete with an indoor pool and jacuzzi, sits in the lavish Dorset.
The former football manager previously suggested that the sprawling mansion had become ’too big’ for him and his beloved wife, so they upped sticks in search of a smaller place to call home.
The celebrity couple are believed to have bagged a £3 million profit, with Harry splashing some of the cash on his new property in leafy Branksome Park, Poole.
Harry adopted the ‘out with the old, in with the new’ perspective when he decided to demolish the semi-derelict property, and in its place, he built and designed a five-bedroom solar-powered home.
The former Spurs boss and his wife Sandra are currently living in temporary accommodation while the finishing touches are being made to their new, not-so-humble abode.
According to the construction company DG Developments website, Harry’s incredible home is due for completion in September, so the much-loved star will finally be able to settle in next Autumn.
Plans submitted to Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole Council, suggest that new property will boast cutting-edge energy-saving technology.
An energy and resource report states there will be solar panels on the roof for hot water and other solar technology will provide electricity.
There will also be ‘grey water systems to reduce clean water consumption, high efficiency gas-fired condensing boilers, high level of insulation to building envelope, and energy-efficient lighting and appliances’.
The website report states: “We anticipate that the generation of energy needs for the proposed dwelling can be achieved through the use of a combination of heat pump, photovoltaic technology, and solar panel technology.
“The flat areas of the roof will provide roof planes with suitable orientation for photovoltaic panels and solar panels.”
Harry and Sandra’s incredible new home also boasts a sprawling open-plan living space, including an open plan kitchen, breakfast bar, and dining area.
Downstairs, there will be a separate living room and a huge study.
Elsewhere, the couple’s stunning sustainable home also features a home office and a huge master bedroom which boasts two walk-ins his ’n’ hers wardrobes as well as an ensuite bathroom.
