Mark Wright building a golf course and football pitch at new £1.3m dream home in Essex

MARK Wright is set to turn the grounds of his country pile into a golf heaven with a pitch and putt green.

And keen footballer Mark – who played for Crawley Town earlier in the season before being released – is planning a mini footie pitch, too.

Sport-mad Mark and wife Michelle Keegan are having a giant mansion built in the countryside.

And it comes with several acres of land after they took up the option to purchase fields at the bottom of the garden.

 A source revealed: “Mark is golf mad and plays off a decent handicap and wants a little three-par pitch and putt hole on his land.

“And with all the grounds now available to him at his new place, he will have plenty of space for a golf hole and a small footie pitch as well.”

Ex-Corrie and Our Girl star Michelle and former TOWIE hunk hubby Mark bought the plot in 2019 and demolished a mock Tudor home to make way for their mega-mansion.

They slapped down £1.3 million in cash to buy a detached house overlooking the rolling Essex countryside.

And they are spending another fortune building a bespoke mansion with swimming pool, gym and bar in its place.

Each of the property’s five bedrooms has its own en-suite, while three of them have dressing rooms.

The master bedroom has its own glass balcony so the couple can enjoy the countryside views – and Mark’s golf haven.

Mark's rep has been contacted for comment.
