Star tennis player Andy Murray has bought a luxury hotel property in his native Scotland.

Reports said on Wednesday that the 25-year-old had signed a deal for the 14-room Cromlix House Hotel in the city of Dunblaine. The property, which is where Murray’s brother married his Columbian girlfriend in 2010, reportedly went for some £1.8 million.

The hotel, which is at the centre of a historic 2,000-acre estate, has been closed for business since February of 2011, having struggled since the economic downturn of 2008. The hotel was built in 1874 and is surrounded by 36 acres of manicured grounds. Of its 14 bedrooms, 18 are luxury suites, and the facility also features a grand dining room for more than 100 guests as well as a manager’s flat and several conference facilities.

It is not yet known what Murray intends to do with it, although some speculate he may use it for a base for next year’s Ryder Cup, which is set to take place only around 10 minutes away by helicopter. Others believe that he may refurbish the property to revitalise its life as a luxury getaway.
