It was not immediately clear if Ronaldo’s doting mum Dolores or his older brother Hugo, who both live at the seven-floor house, were inside the property at the time.
Meanwhile, his partner Georgina Rodriguez was away at Paris Fashion Week.
Juventus striker Ronaldo spent the first part of the coronavirus lockdown earlier this year staying on the top two floors of the house with his partner Georgina Rodriguez and his children after Serie A football was suspended.
The father of four bought the building in 2015 from local designer Nini Andrade Silva for an undisclosed amount, and set about renovating it into his dream property.
Before, it was the warehouse where the island’s local newspaper – Diário de Notícias da Madeira – was based, and has also housed a famous nightclub called Bar/Blub Noir.
When the £7 million work was completed in 2019, Ronaldo moved in with his mother and brother Hugo, who also manages Ronaldo’s nearby CR7 museum. The footballer also owns a nearby 48-room luxury hotel, the Pestana CR7.

The house has two swimming pools – one on the roof – as well as two gyms and a small indoor football pitch where Ronaldo can train while he is staying at home
The property has four above-ground floors, with the top two taken by Ronaldo and his girlfriend, along with his children.
It is not known exactly how many bedrooms and bathrooms the property boasts, but it does have two swimming pools – one of the roof – as well as two gyms and a small football pitch Ronaldo uses to train at while he is at home.
The underground garage, through which the thief reportedly gained entry to the mansion, can house up to five cars.
After moving back to the property towards the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Ronaldo and his girlfriend later moved to a villa with a garden around half an hour’s drive away before flying back to Italy.
The former Man U and Real Madrid star played in last night’s 0-0 draw between Portugal and Spain.
Ronaldo’s mansion is close to his roots. He was born in Funchal in 1985, and often spends time on Madeira when he’s not training with Juventus in Italy.
During the coronavirus pandemic, he supplied the local hospital with ventilators and equipment.
Barcelona’s Gerard Pique and former Chelsea front-man Alvaro Morata, are among top footballers whose homes have been targeted by thieves.
