Fabulous houses near football grounds

What's on the market within half an hour of major stadiums?

As the World Cup continues to draw millions of viewers from around the globe, properties within half an hour of major stadiums offer luxurious - and convenient - homes for football fans.

According to research from Halifax, average property prices near the 20 Premier League football clubs have increased more than 130 per cent over the last ten years.

Similar figures from Zoopla suggest that Chelsea tops the property premier league of the highest average property values around each Premier League stadium, followed by Fulham, Arsenal, QPR and Reading.

"Living close to a high-profile sports venue is not just a sports lover’s dream," said Head of Research at Strutt & Parker, Stephanie McMahon."Typically the areas around stadiums have gone through a process of regeneration and have a wealth of facilities close by which can mean that neighbouring properties carry quite a significant premium."
