While Andy Murray will miss the Australian Open and the European indoor events as he recovers from his pelvic injury, the Scot is using the time to a build a triple garage at his new £3million five-bedroom Surrey mansion, according to The Daily Mail.
The garage will go along with the swimming pool, massage room, gym and a tennis court at the mansion. Murray recently approved the plans for the garage, which will see an existing garage and a series of outbuildings being demolished and a courtyard-style garage being built to accommodate his fleet of cars.
The new home is still under construction and is a few miles from Murray's other £5million property in Oxshott, which he shares with his wife and three children. Murray's planning agents, commented, 'The existing garages and outbuildings are of no architectural merit and are generally run down in appearance.
This application proposes to erect a replacement garage and store following the demolition of two garages and outbuildings at the site. The new building would be sited within the established residential curtilage of the property and is proposed for purposes purely ancillary to the main house.
As such there should be no objection to their demolition. The new garage / store would be an attractively designed and well-proportioned building, as the elevation plans below demonstrate. The Murrays bought the house in 2016.
The architects working on the house have said, "The design of the property would be one of a Georgian appearance with narrow long windows and stone detailing. The position of the new property would be close to the existing and therefore the spacious nature of the site would be maintained.'
