The £1.3 million mansion belonging to ex-Norwich City skipper Russell Martin has been snapped up by another former Canary – but who?

The palatial 7,000sqft ultra-modern house with seven bedrooms close to Wymondham has been bought by an unnamed erstwhile City player who is planning to return to Norfolk after retiring.

The Oaks came on the market almost exactly a year ago and caused a huge stir with speculation as to which City star owned it. Six months later Martin left the club after nine years.

The property, situated in an exclusive development of four, was marketed by estate agents Warners.

David Warner, of Warners, based in Wymondham, said it was being bought by a footballer friend of Martin’s who, for reasons he could not give, needed a year before he could make the purchase. He said although there was some demand for massive luxury houses in Norfolk, it was not usually from footballers who preferred to rent rather than buy.

The Oaks comes with a massive luxury kitchen with doors which open right across almost the entire rear width of the house to the patio and garden. There is a master bedroom suite which comes with a dressing room and en suite and outside, two double garages.
