The luxury home where paedophile Stuart Hall abused his victims is set to be demolished after it was finally sold.

The four bed Spanish-style house, named Quinta, has been sold for around £995,000.

All traces of its former owner will be erased as plans for a brand new house on the site in the sought-after area in Cheshire have already been drawn up.

The house was originally on sale for £1.2million but had to be knocked down due to lack of interest.

According to a source, interest in the property ‘stagnated’ because everyone who might have been interested knew its history.

They said: ‘Hall was a household name so even if potential buyers don’t know at first who the house belongs to they will when they do a bit of research.

‘Girls were abused in the house and in the swimming pool in the garden so to say the house is tainted is an under-statement.’

A developer has now bought the house and plans to knock it down, get rid of the pool and start from scratch.

The ex-BBC broadcaster had lived in the house with his wife Hazel, but she moved out in October, two months before her husband was released from jail.

Only three months before he admitted a number of sex attacks on 13 girls, aged between nine and 17, he had signed over the deeds of the house to his wife.

Hall, who was stripped of his OBE in October 2013, was jailed for a total of five years after admitting to 14 counts of assaulting girls between 1967 and 1985.
