Lawrence Hall, of Zoopla Property Group, looks at Premier League footballers' property hotspots
With the January player transfer window having come to a close, estate agents across the UK will now be kept busy helping to find homes for the relocated players and their WAGs in their new surroundings. So, we've taken a look at these areas in a little more detail and compiled the Zoopla.co.uk Premier League Property Hotspots.
Oxshott in Surrey, home to ex-England captain John Terry and celebrity couple Jamie and Louise Redknapp, tops the list of Premier League Property Hotspots with average property prices in a league of their own at an eye-watering £1,456,865. Wannabe WAGS will also be eyeing Hampstead in north London, in second place with average property values of £1,068,955 and a long-time favourite among Arsenal players including Russian star Andrei Arshavin.
Those players and WAGs looking to surround themselves with premier league neighbours should look no further than Esher in Surrey, where a star-studded line-up of residents includes Chelsea and England star Frank Lampard and wife Christine Bleakley, Ashley Cole and Gary and Danielle Lineker and where the average property prices currently stand at £756,016.
In terms of performance, Cobham in Surrey – home to Chelsea FC's training ground – comes out on top. Average house prices in the area have risen 6.35 per cent since last February, making it the top performing Premier League Property Hotspot over the past year.
