You’d have to be a Goon-er to buy this property!

Sep 25, 2015

For many football fans, a property just a stone’s throw from their chosen teams home ground would be the dream. Arsenal 1Well for Arsenal fans the possibility of actually residing in the Gooner’s stadium could be a reality, almost. Unfortunately there aren’t any residential opportunities in the actual Emirates, but Zoopla do have a two bedroom luxury apartment for sale in Arsenal’s former home, Highbury.

Arsenal 5Now renamed Highbury Stadium Square, the apartment is on the market for just shy of a million, a tad more expensive than a season ticket but who can put a price on such a piece of sporting history?

Arsenal 6The property also includes a concierge service as well as onsite pool and gym complex, although membership is not included with the property, and private underground parking.

Arsenal 2At about 69 meters squared, it isn’t the largest property, but that’s what a million will get you throughout the majority of the capital these days. That measurement also includes the balcony, but it does have great views down into what was once the pitch, but is now a well maintained communal garden.

It also benefits from good transport links, just a short walk from Arsenal underground on the Piccadilly Line.

Snapping up this property could be a far sounder investment than actually supporting the Gunner’s. In the last five years house prices in the N5 postcode have increased by over £200,000, whereas Arsenal have only managed two FA Cups and a handful of top four finishes.
