Friday 4th June 2010

A What House? Award winning house is the answer! The football star's home, a five-bedroom mansion located in Prestbury, Cheshire, which he rents for around £12,000 per week, picked up a silver gong in last year's What House? Awards' Best Luxury House category due to its hi-tech features and eco-friendly design.

The property, built by Huntsmere, is ‘packed with originality and innovation behind its stylish, traditional elevation' according to the What House? judge's report.

The mansion also features a swimming pool with underwater sound system, textured wall panels inspired by Armani and a cinema room.

A 60-tube solar heating system provides 75% of the hot water, while there is also a heat recovery system throughout the house.

Tevez's home beat ex-team mate Patrice Evra's house, which was awarded Bronze in the same category at last year's What House? event.

The Manchester United defender lives in a 6,550 square foot house that ‘is finished to perfection, with unusual touches such as leather bound banister handrail and suede padded wardrobes adding interest', according to the judge's report.

The property, located in St George's Hill, Surrey, was built by Octagon.

But last year's gold award was issued to Millwood Designer Homes for its 14,000 square foot mansion, Tyburn House in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, which enjoys 56 acres of grounds and extensive views.

All five bedrooms in the home have cathedral ceilings and en-suite facilities, with the master en-suite having a vaulted ceiling, square Jacuzzi bath and twin showers. There is also a swimming pool and outdoor tennis court.
