The Iceman called it a day on his career at the end of last season after driving for Alfa Romeo

But, rest assured, he has the choice of some amazing homes to retire in.

First, there is his £20million James Bond villain-like Swiss villa worth a cool £20million.

Then there’s his reported three homes in his homeland of Finland, as well properties in Dubai and Thailand.

But it’s his mansion near Zurich that Kimi spends the majority of time with his stunning wife, Minttu, and children Robin and Rianna.


Kimi bought the dream house for a mega £17million in 2009.

Named Butterfly – although it’s unclear why – it can be found in Baar, a small village near Zurich.

Kimi explained: “We searched for about five years for a property where we could build our own house.

“Then we found Villa Butterfly which was ready for move-in and had a name too.”

Built over 3,000 square-feet, the vast living space offers the motorsport legend and his family plenty of space.

There are two pools, one indoor, one outdoor, for the Raikkonens to enjoy.

Lush gardens overlook an incredible backdrop of the Zug lake with the Alps right behind it.

Astonishingly, the building also has a lift and the windows are bulletproof glass.

And there’s a fully-equipped gym to help Kimi stay in shape.


As is a theme with racing car drivers, they like to take their work home with them.

Raikkonen is no different, which explains why his massive garage at Villa Butterfly can hold up to 10 cars.

Although he is said to own a £300,000 Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge and a £3million Ferrari Enzo , it’s motorcycles that hold the Finnish legend’s attention.

Family time in the pool is important to Raikkonen

He has two customised bikes called Iceman I and Iceman II that were designed by German Walz Hardcore Cycles.

Raikkonen was also gifted his 2018 United States Grand Prix-winning Ferrari that is believed to rest in his garage.

But does he have enough room though for his old Alfa Romeo ride now the curtain has come down on his F1 career?
