Wayne Rooney building luxury whisky and cigar room in his £20million mansion

WAYNE Rooney is having a luxury whisky and cigar room built into his £20million mansion.

The England legend, 35, is modelling it on an exclusive jazz venue he frequents.

Wayne and wife Coleen, 34, are usually regulars at Puffin’ Rooms in Liverpool, which has an array of wines, champagnes, cocktails and more than 200 rare whiskies.

A vast selection of Havana or New World cigars is also available.

A source said: “The Puffin Rooms is one of those cosy intimate places where Wayne can relax in the lap of luxury.

“He’s been going there for years with Coleen.

“They love it there and always go back when they’re in Liverpool.

“They wanted the house to feature everything they’ve ever wanted — and this was at the top of Wayne’s list.”

The Derby County boss is converting old farm buildings into a three-storey home after buying the 40-acre plot for £4.3million in July 2018.

All the living spaces at the house in Knutsford, Cheshire, will be fitted with bespoke furniture.

It will also boast a cinema, gym, swimming pool, snooker room, bar, wine store and lifts — plus an underground escape route to the garage block in case of intruders.

The source added: “Money is no object. They’ve spent a long time working on this house and have made sure it delivers every luxury.”
