Cristiano Ronaldo is currently in the process of constructing an opulent residence in Cascais, Portugal, situated approximately 20 minutes from Lisbon. This extravagant mansion, with an estimated value of $22 million, is poised to become the most expensive house in the country upon its completion in 2024.
The construction project has stirred discontent among the local residents, who express frustration over the disruptions caused to their streets and private properties. The elaborate design, conceptualized by Ronaldo’s family, encompasses four floors and four luxurious suites. Noteworthy features include expansive glass walls offering panoramic views of the picturesque Portuguese landscape.
Within the mansion, amenities such as a cinema room, service area, gym, tennis court, and two garages intended for Ronaldo’s extensive car collection are planned. Despite the grand vision, the construction process has faced delays and budget increases, leading to dissatisfaction among neighbors in this exclusive neighborhood.
Voices of discontent have grown louder, with one neighbor expressing frustration, stating, “We’ve endured three years of construction. The sheer scale of the house resembles a hospital. My street has been inaccessible for months, and my garden is now covered in dust—all due to what some refer to as the ‘pyramid’ of Pharaoh Ronaldo.”
While the completion of the mansion is anticipated in mid-June 2024, Ronaldo’s return to Portugal may not occur until the conclusion of his contract with Al Nassr in June 2025, coinciding with his stated retirement age of 40. The construction saga continues to unfold, leaving the neighborhood divided between admiration for the impending architectural marvel and the inconveniences imposed on the community.
