Properties near cricket grounds

With the cricket season in full swing, we look at properties near cricket grounds around the country

If you love cricket and have deep pockets, then one option is simply buying a home with a cricket ground.

Stanton Court (on with Savills, price on application) is one possibility, a 10 bedroom detached home in Stanton, Broadway, Gloucestershire, dating back to the reign of James 1. It has marvellous views of the Malverns as well as its own cricket pitch and pavilion with two changing rooms, kitchen, showers, and club area.

Less pricey is 17a Bramley Grange, Bramley, Horsham Road, Surrey (on with Cognatum at £295,000 leasehold) - the Guinness Book of Records notes the local cricket club's decision in 1745 to be the first ground in England to host an all-women's match. This property is a second floor two-bedroom apartment in five acres of mature landscaped gardens on the site of a former hotel

One of the most iconic cricket grounds is Lord's. Chestertons has a lovely three bedroom balcony apartment for £1,925,000 on the second floor of the portered Century Court building. close to the junction of Grove End Road and St John's Wood Road.

"St John's Wood has many famous landmarks with tourists from all over the world flocking to walk across the Abbey Road crossing but perhaps its most famous, is the home of cricket, Lord's," says David Brand Associate Director, Sales at Chestertons.

"2014 is the 200th anniversary of the MCC moving to St John's Wood and the surrounding area has certainly changed beyond all recognition in that time. Apartments bordering Lords now sell for well in excess of £1,000,000 and while it is difficult to put an exact figure on what these apartments fetch compared to the street behind, the apartments with direct views of the hallowed pitch, can certainly command massive premiums compared to similar apartments in the same building."

Close to the Taunton cricket grounds is the two bedroomed apartment at Fullands House, Taunton, and the two bedroom cottage at Flacca Court, Field Lane, Tattenhall, Chester, near Tattenhall's picturesque cricket pitch (on with Cognatum at £195,000 leasehold and £325,000respectively).
