Inside Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock's £4.95m home she shares with fiancé Andre Grey as they put it up for sale
LEIGH-ANNE Pinnock and Andre Grey have put their huge Surrey mansion up for sale – for £4.95m.
The Little Mix star and her footballer fiancé put the six-bedroom home on the market after being refused planning permission to build an underground swimming pool.
The couple paid £4.75m for the impressive property in 2018 and Andre proposed to Leigh-Anne in the garden in May last year.
The home already has a cinema room, a bar, a huge marble-floored hall and a wine cellar so big it has an elevator to reach high-up bottles.
The mansion also has direct access onto a nearby golf course and a games room.
But the singer and Watford striker, both 29, wanted to splash out and add an underground leisure complex with a swimming pool, gym, sauna and jacuzzi.
The long building would have been set into a banked garden with a sunken courtyard at the couple's luxury home.
But last year, the local council blocked the plans, and officials called the proposed 13ft-high development "inappropriate", saying it would harm the green belt area.
They said: "It is noted that the proposal would largely be below ground and that land re-profiling would be limited, however this simply means that no additional harm to the green belt would arise."
In a separate planning application, the couple were given the go-ahead to extend their kitchen, breakfast room and master bedroom.
Last year, they were allowed to keep a 9ft privacy wall and entrance gates that were built without planning permission.
As part of planning permission for the new build home six years ago, officials at Surrey Heath Council made a condition that no extensions, garages or other buildings can be added without the council's consent.
The famous pair applied for permitted development rights to be reinstated, with their planning agent saying: "It places an unnecessary restriction on the activities of future householders as it removes freedoms to carry out small scale domestic extensions, outbuildings and alterations."
Planners are expected to make a decision on January 18 – but clearly Leigh-Anne and Andre got tired of waiting.
Leigh Anne’s rep has been approached for comment by The Sun Online.
