Brazil legend Pele sells exclusive Hamptons mansion owned for 40 years for £2.2million complete with six bedrooms and outdoor pool

The three-time World Cup winner, 77, bought the property for just £120,000 in 1979 but has been looking to shift it for five months.

Pele finally sold the luxurious pad for £300,000 less than originally listed (£2.5m)… but still made a cool £2.08m profit.

The Clearwater Beach retreat in Springs – in the affluent New York district – comes with six bedrooms, five bathrooms and even at outdoor pool.

The interior includes extra-high ceilings, an open floorplan and a brand new kitchen – to go with play area, office and even a media room.

Along with the outdoor pool, comes an outside shower and garage.

The stunning home sits on the equally impressive coastline, with crystal clear blue waters – a gorgeous 100-mile drive along the Long Island coastline from Manhattan.

Pele bought the incredible home two years after hanging up his football boots – where he last played for New York Cosmos.

The 92-cap, 77-goal Brazil international opted to keep a house close to NYC and bought the Hamptons pad soon after retirement.

But after 39 years, Pele has opted for a more low-maintenance housing portfolio and sold it for a cut-price £2.2m.
