View Full Version : Anna K. Wants a Castle

Mar 23rd, 2003, 05:52 PM


TENNIS beauty Anna Kournikova wants to buy a Scottish castle, The People can reveal.

The Russian ace has ordered her management company to find a Highland hideaway.

Anna, 21, became fascinated by the idea after her favourite pop star Madonna married at Skibo Castle in Sutherland two years ago.

Anna already owns a 4million mansion in Miami, Florida, but is anxious to have a European base. The going rate for Scottish castles is between 10million and 30million - a snip for the star.

Despite never having won a major tournament, she is one of the world's wealthiest sportswomen thanks to modelling contracts.

She earns 10million a year - although less than a million from tennis. A source at her management firm Octagon said: "Anna is very keen to buy a Scottish castle.

"I think she's got a notion that it would be incredibly romantic to own one in the middle of nowhere."

But Anna - dating heart-throb singer Enrique Iglesias - may have trouble finding the right one.

John Coleman, of international property firm Knight Frank, said: "There are only about three castle sales a year in Scotland."

I think it'd be cool, but I doubt Anna's actually gonna do it!

TC, you've been reading lot of mystery novels! ;)

Like Knoplfer6 alluded to. It doesn't seem right sell Scottish culture to anyone with millions of dollars.

Maybe Anna is bored and wants to re-invent herself like her idol Madonna has done so many times.

why doesn't she try re-inventing herself as a tennis player then...? :o :o

Because Anna may have already seen her best days as a tennis player. And she probably has no confidence as an athlete at this time. I keep hoping for a turnaround. But it's starting to seem unlikely.

I hope Anna Kournikova does not buy a Scottish Castle. The media would have a field day with it.
