Calling all rugby fans…I am sure you are more than aware that the Six Nations begins this Saturday with France Vs Italy and if you got the chance, you’d want the best seats in the house…close to the action. Well here at eMoov we have collated six properties within spitting distance of the stadiums that will be used across the championship, so you can get up close and personal to all the action.
First up, of course, is Paris (to those that didn’t know, the first game is held here). Just a 15 minute drive to the Stade de Fance in Arrondissement de Saint-Denis is this beautiful three bedroom apartment. Overlooking the Parc des Buttes Chaumont,this apartment is in an atypical Haussmann building.
Situated on the 2nd floor of this atypical residence, the elegant period apartment offers a view over the 61 acres of Parc des Buttes-Chaumont. With its high ceiling and original solid oak parquet, this property is a real French treasure.
This five room living space would be perfect for having all your friends back after the match! However, as you would expect in Paris, it doesn’t come cheap. This apartment would set you back £823,636 (€1,090,000).
Next up we have this lovely six bedroom terraced house in Edinburgh. Only 16 minutes walking distance, or if you can’t handle that – a four minute drive, away from the Murrayfield Stadium.
This substantial, mid-terrace house provides spacious and flexible accommodations over three floors. It is rich in period detail, enjoys a generous garden and benefits from a double garage to the rear. Perfect for all your rugby gear. For all you diehard Scottish supporters, this property could be yours for £795,000.
Over in Dublin, tucked away in this exclusive development set back from Eglinton Road, is this impressive property. Surrounded by Sylvan landscaped gardens this two bedroom apartment is just a quick bus ride from the Aviva Stadium, the perfect place to hold a pre match party.
Located on the ground floor, the home benefits from high ceilings, well laid out spacious accommodation and a sunny south west facing patio area. This well-proportioned bright apartment comprises of an entrance hall, open plan living/dining room, kitchen, two double bedrooms and main bathroom with marble finish. Adding to the luxurious accommodation there is underfloor heating throughout.
The location cannot be overstated, being situated within walking distance of both Donnybrook and Ranelagh and within reach of an extensive choice of amenities including the RDS, UCD Belfield and Donnybrook Village. Perfect for a night on the town after a good game. This property is on the market at the moment for £474,798 (€625,000).
If you’re wanting more bang for your buck then look no further than this prestigious duplex apartment. At just under £150,000, this could be a Welsh rugby fan’s dream get away after every home game.
The one bedroom property is located in The Grand, Westgate Street, Cardiff, ideal for the city centre and opposite the Principality Stadium. Perfect! From the top floor you have views of the stunning castle, city and maybe even the stadium pitch. However, if that’s not close enough, then you only have to walk five minutes to the stadium gates.
Without a doubt, and with very little surprise, the most beautiful property nearest to the six stadiums, is this one in Rome. The three bedroom apartment for sale in Via Vallombrosa is a short car journey from Stadio Olympico.
Although you may not be able to see the stadium from this property, I don’t think there is many that would mind as the views are somewhat spectacular. The entire apartment has panoramic views of Insugherata Park, which is about as close to a tropical paradise as you can get.
The apartment itself is made up of three large bedrooms, a large living area and open plan kitchen. The floor to ceiling windows lets in light across all the rooms, providing it with a fresh and spacious feel. The outdoor balcony that adjoins all the rooms, is the perfect place for an after match beverage whilst you take in the stunning surroundings.
Last but certainly not least is good old Twickenham. Only moments from the stadium itself, this stunning and impeccably presented four bedroom Victorian family house, is on the market at £1,250,000.
Located in a highly sought after cul-de-sac in the heart of St Margarets, this particularly attractive property has been tastefully and beautifully extended and benefits from an attractive south-facing rear garden. The ground floor accommodation comprises a lovely through reception room with a period fireplace. This through to a wonderful kitchen/living/dining space at the rear with granite worktops and a limestone floor with underfloor heating, as well as concertina doors opening to the garden and a cloakroom under the stairs.
The first floor includes three double bedrooms and a luxury marble shower-room with a large fully-enclosed shower, whist the top floor boasts a sumptuous family bathroom with Travertine tiling and a stand alone bath, as well as a spacious master bedroom with a balcony.
So which one would you choose as your Six Nations hangout or perhaps as a property investment? England were the first to win the Six Nation when it increased from five in 2000. Since then the average UK house price has increased by 142% and they’ve won it another three times, including a Grand Slam in 2003.
So if you are considering a Six Nations property purchase, Twickenham could be the way to go.
