Harry Redknapp and his wife Sandra owned their stunning waterfront mansion on Sandbanks for 14 years between 2001 and 2015.

The couple purchased the Harbour Gate mansion in 2001 for £3million before selling it in 2015 for £6.9m to Topps Tiles founder Barry Bester.

However, Bester has now sold the property for £10million, breaking the record for the most expensive sale of a house on Sandbanks after beating the previous record of £8.09m, paid for the property next door in 2018.

The stunning mansion backs onto the entrance to Poole harbour and was first sold back in 1995 for just £400,000.

The property includes a kitchen and breakfast room, dining room, lounge, cinema room, library, indoor swimming pool, a gym with a sauna and an office.

In addition, the master bedroom has a large en suite bathroom as well as an even bigger dressing room and a water-facing balcony that overlooks Poole Harbour.

The house also comes with two sun terraces, a private jetty and a three-bedroom detached gatehouse that itself is valued at £1million.

Redknapp bought the property after becoming sporting director at Portsmouth, following seven years in charge at West Ham United.

He had managed five more teams by the time he and Sandra sold the mansion in 2015, most recently Queen's Park Rangers.

Steve Isaacs, who works for local estate agents Luxury and Prestige who handled the record breaking sale, told The Sun that:

“We can confirm that the house has sold and it is quite a landmark sale as it is the most valuable house on Sandbanks to have sold.

“The house occupies arguably the best position on Sandbanks. It sits on a double-sized plot and comes with a lodge house on the grounds that would be quite a valuable house on its own merits.

“There are now more buyers than there are sellers.

“This has been fuelled by wealthy individuals relocating from London and other parts of the country as well as those looking for additional homes.”
