Peter Crouch has recently bought Andrew Flintoff's Cheshire mansion for $4.5 million.

According to The People magazine, the 30-year-old English footballer has purchased the six-bedroom property to stay with his wife Abbey Clancy and their six-month-old daughter Sophia.

Peter CrouchThe mansion boasts of a gym, a cinema room, a swimming pool, a dressing room for fashion conscious Clancy and is located in Prestbury -- an area popular with many footballers like Coleen Rooney and Rio Ferdinand.

The Crouch family is moving north after the footballer was transferred from Tottenham Hotspurs to Stoke City.

"Abbey worried over leaving London but she's chuffed to be in Alderley Edge," the Daily Mail quoted a pal as saying.

"The likes of Coleen Rooney live here, so it's WAG central,"the pal stated.

Flintoff originally built the mansion in 2009 and put the property on the market for 5 million pounds but didn't sell for two years, until Peter and Abbey snapped it up when the price was dropped.
