MARK Wright and Michelle Keegan’s dream Essex home is “far from complete” despite work starting more than a YEAR ago.
The married pair are building a £3.5million mega mansion but construction has been slowed by lockdowns and Covid restrictions.
Mark, 34, shared what the dream property is expected to look like in a series of jaw-dropping pictures, revealing it will feature five-bedrooms, a bar, gym, granny annexe and outdoor swimming pool.
The digital images showed the palace-like home standing at the top of a set of steps that are lit from below.
They lead down to an electric-blue pool surrounded with sun-loungers and Marbella-style cabanas for the couple and their guests to relax in.
Posting on the couple’s home’s Instagram account, football and TV star Mark wrote: “Our garden means the world to us and we love the outdoors.
“We searched high an low to find the best landscape designers, after realising that there was only one company for us….
“We begged for them to make some time in their busy schedule. So today, we received this from the outstanding, incredible @rosebanklandscaping
“It’s funny how you can have a dream, tell the professionals and they make your dream, bigger than you ever imagined.”
He added: “Absolutely blown away and cannot wait to see it come to life!! Boys…. Thank you for your excellence and your insane talent.”
However, according to MailOnline, the celeb couple can expect to wait a good while longer as it has been estimated that the granny annexe alone will need four months from now to complete as the foundations have not yet been laid.
What’s more, the couple have paused sharing updates on their Instagram house page which has been left inactive since April.
Mark and Michelle, who married in 2015, bought the property, a mock-Tudor house, for £1.3million in October 2019.
In January 2020, it was revealed that they were demolishing the farmhouse.
Now construction experts have estimated the demolition and rebuild of the new home will cost around £3.5million in total.
Bigger than you ever imagined
Mark and Michelle, 34, were last seen visiting the building site in May.
The couple also celebrated their sixth anniversary in May and marked the milestone by returning to the venue where they married with their dogs chihuahua Pip and dachshund Phoebe.
Since then the celeb pair have enjoyed holidays to Ibiza and Majorca via a private jet.
Michelle gave fans a glimpse of her holiday with a selection of photos, which saw her flashing her tanned legs in pretty, summery dresses.
Mark, meanwhile, has admitted he’d piled on the pounds while away on their 10-day jaunt to the Med.
The former Towie star recently shared his “reverse body transformation” on Instagram, as he confessed to indulging in ice cream, booze, and pizza while abroad.
“No lie… This is what 10 days in Mallorca and Ibiza has done to me. Best time ever. But time to get back on it,” he said.
