Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan's huge swimming pool revealed as £1.3m Essex mega mansion nears completion

MARK Wright and Michelle Keegan's HUGE swimming pool has been revealed as their £1.3million Essex mansion nears completion.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star and his wife have been documenting the progress of the build – which kickstarted last year.

Now, new snaps show how the garden space is coming together as the HUGE swimming pool is finally installed behind the property.

A gigantic hole has been dug out from the dirt, with what appears to be a flat concrete floor already fashioned at the bottom.

Around the pool space, landscaping has already begun – including large stone steps and the start of a seated terrace area.

The pool sits in the middle of the sprawling back garden, which Mark, 35, recently boasted was "four to five acres" in total.

The Heart radio presenter admitted that he would need a special ride-on lawn mower in order to keep it neat and tidy.

"Just here standing on the field part of the garden at the new house," Mark said as he showed off the acres of grass land.

Pointing out towards the green fields, he went on: "As you can see here, I am going to need a big sit-on tractor lawnmower thing."

It comes days after Mark showed off the latest finishing touches being put in at his Essex mansion, as the windows were installed.

Sharing a video of the latest bit of work, Mark showed just how huge and stunning the property will be once completed.

The sprawling pad has floor-to-ceiling windows, a master bedroom looking out over the rolling fields and even its own bar.

Mark has been keeping fans up to date with the couple’s progress on their “Wrightyhome” Instagram account.

The couple bought their home for £1.3 million but set about turning it into a high-tech mansion bristling with security features.

Their vast property's value is estimated to be closer to £3.5million.

Last week, Mark and Michelle's interior designer showed off the surprising view of their next door neighbour's home.

While so far fans following the build have seen the sprawling five-acre garden, it may come as a shock that the couple have neighbours.

The stunning country pad has been designed like an elegant fortress and fitted with 360 degree motion-sensing cameras.

Mark recently showed followers the sort of towering gates that will guard the entrance to the property.

Each of the property’s five bedrooms has its own en-suite, while three of them have dressing rooms.

Having knocked down an old cottage on the land, the new palatial mansion that stands in its place has at last had its exterior completed.

Mark recently told The Sun that he turned down a massive US TV gig so he could stay put with his wife in their new home

He said:  “We love LA but we are not moving back there, not yet anyway.

“I was actually meant to host a really big dating show out there a few months ago but I couldn’t do it because I had to be in a bubble for three months and I wouldn’t have been able to leave so I had to say no. 

“When I was out there I saw it on TV and it looked really good, so I was devastated, but I don’t regret leaving LA.

“Michelle and I love being at home in England. England is so amazing and you don’t realise until you do something like I did how incredible it is. I would never be able to live away again.

"I would certainly go back there for a period of time to do a job, but not full time. I don’t like missing my friends and family.”
