O'Leary Barbados villa for sale as he moves to bigger one on estate
Irish football legend David O’Leary is selling his luxury villa on the exclusive Royal Westmoreland estate in Barbados. But don’t worry, unlike so many who are moving on because of an unwelcome change in fortunes, O’Leary won’t have to travel far as he has upgraded to a larger villa on the estate.
The former Ireland player and manager and Leeds United and Aston Villa manager is seeking
$1.2 million (€934,000) for the 234sq m (2,520 sq ft) villa. It features three bedrooms and an open-plan kitchen, dining and living space. Outside there is a double car parking space and golf buggy parking facilities – of course. The villa has been tastefully decorated and finished with high quality furnishings and accessories. It comes with access to a neighbourhood 60-foot infinity pool with a separate kids’ pool. The resort is an oasis of tranquility with beautifully landscaped gardens and ornamental lakes as well as access to all facilities such as golf, beach club, tennis gym.
The villa was originally purchased by O’Leary in 2006. Wayne Rooney also has a six-bed home in Royal Westmoreland, the largest in the estate.
The resort in St James, on the west coast of Barbados, is owned by John Morphet, an Isle of Man-based former sheep farmer turned business tycoon. Morphet made his fortune developing caravan parks and log cabin holiday villages in the northeast of England. He bought the Barbados estate with its original 500 acres for a reputed £55 million (€66 million) in September 2004.
