  • On Saturday, MailOnline saw no fewer than ten planes flying over the Rooneys home in the space of two hours 
  • In 2012, 600 homeowners nearby were paid £1,500 compensation because their properties were devalued by aircraft noise
  • In 2014 weary villagers expressed their despair when the airport announced it was extending operating hours

  • Wayne and Coleen’s hopes of moving into the six-bedroom home were dashed by of delays to the big project 

Wayne and Coleen Rooney’s £20m new dream home is right under the flight-path of Britain’s third busiest airport, MailOnline can reveal.

Despite its idyllic location in the Cheshire countryside, the six-bedroom mansion is barely three miles from the runway of Manchester Airport and aircraft noise will be a constant feature.

Even in the surrounding fields the rural tranquility is frequently shattered by the din of jets landing and taking off at less than 1,000 feet from the ground.

On Saturday MailOnline saw ten passenger jets – including a low-flying Ryanair plane – inside two hours pass over the house 


Wayne (left) and Coleen Rooney’s (right) dreams of spending Christmas in their dream new £20million mansion have been dashed by a series of new set-backs on their troubled building project that has been dragging on for four years 

On Saturday, MailOnline saw no fewer than ten incoming planes passing over the property in the space of two hours, the various airline insignia clearly visible from the ground. 

One jet even bore the livery of Abu Dhabi airline Etihad, sponsors of former Man Utd captain Rooney’s bitter rivals Manchester City and their famous stadium. 

Noise from take-offs could also be heard above the sounds of sheep and birds in nearby fields.

Last week MailOnline revealed that the Rooneys’ dreams of spending Christmas in their new house have been dashed because of building delays – partly due to his wife Coleen’s frequent changes of mind on the design. 

The six-bedroom mega mansion – where building began in 2017 – has been plagued by delays, particularly at the start of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown when building ground to a halt entirely when deliveries of building materials stopped

Wayne and Coleen had pencilled in early this year as a moving in date. That was postponed until May, but when the pandemic hit progress a source now they will not be moving in before 2021, according to sources working on the project

From the grounds of their unfinished property, mocked for its resemblance to a ‘Morrisons supermarket’, the Rooneys will regularly see planes flying above them. 

And sharp-eyed passengers will easily be able to spot the huge property with its full-size football pitch in the 40-acre grounds – and possibly even glimpse the former England legend enjoying a kickaround with his four sons.

The aircraft noise is worse when the wind is blowing in an easterly direction and planes coming in to land then choose to circle to the west of the property – above the M6 near Knutsford – before beginning their descent. 

Their approach then takes them above the village of Mobberley, around a mile from the Rooneys’ home, with the noise increasing as planes lose height before lining up for the runway.

On busier days, when flights are more frequent, the din will be even worse, and with the airport and many airlines currently operating at reduced capacity during the pandemic, the traffic is only set to increase.

In 2019, Manchester’s total of 29.4m passengers was the third highest in the UK with only Heathrow and Gatwick handling more people. 

The 34-year-old England legend and ex-Premier League star’s pad boasts an orangery, bar, TV room, snooker room, cinema and wine cellar, as well as a huge indoor swimming pool surrounded by a glass pavilion, a hot tub, steam room and ‘his’ and ‘hers’ changing rooms.

Work on the converted farm came to a standstill in April due to concerns around building supply deliveries as lockdown restrictions came into full force.

The issue of aircraft noise has long been controversial in Knutsford and Mobberley – which is on the Runway Two flight path – especially since the opening of a second runway in 2001. 

In 2012, nearly 600 homeowners in Knutsford and Mobberley were paid around £1,500 compensation each because their properties had been devalued due to aircraft noise when the second runway was opened 11 years earlier. The deal was part-brokered by then local MP and former Chancellor George Osborne. 

When they can finally move in the Rooneys can enjoy an orangery, bar, TV room, snooker room, cinema and wine cellar, as well as a huge indoor swimming pool surrounded by a glass pavilion, hot tub, steam room and ‘his’ and ‘hers’ changing rooms 

An aerial view shows the incredible project taking shape, albeit more slowly than the Rooneys had hoped. A source told MailOnline the couple have been patient with all the delays as they live in their £5m Prestbury home while work is carried out  

And in 2014 weary villagers expressed their despair when it was announced the airport would be extending its operating hours.

In 2016, plans for 365 homes to be built in Mobberley were been rejected due to the ‘unacceptable’ impact of noise on future residents.

A spokesman for Rooney was contacted.
