Homes fit for a Premier League star

With the Premier League transfer window now shut for the winter, cashed up footballers will be moving around the country in order to be closer to their team mates and training grounds.  Here at FindaProperty we like to help out where we can, so we’ve picked out these homes for sale to help the young chaps settle in.

1. Fernando Torres

The Spanish striker will be getting to know the delights of Chelsea and Surrey after Chelsea paid Liverpool £50 million and set a new record for a transfer between two English clubs.

We say: This sophisticated mansion on the Crown Estate in Oxshott Surrey is within striking distance of Chelsea’s training ground and would suit 26-year-old family man Torres. It would also make him a neighbour to new team mate John Terry.

The six-bedroom family home features an indoor pool complex, air conditioning, personal lift and staff annex as well as extensive gardens. It’s on the market with Knight Frank with a guide price of £3.9 million.

2. Andy Carroll

The Gateshead born 22-year-old will no doubt invest quality time finding his perfect Scouser pub once he’s relocated after Liverpool paid Newcastle £35 million for the goal scoring Carroll who’s well known for his love of the drink.

We say: Carroll would do well to set up home near Liverpool star Steven Garrard, who lives with wife Alex Curran in a £3 million mansion in the Merseyside suburb of Freshfield. Alternatively he could opt for this three bedroom penthouse apartment with sea views in Crosby, Merseyside, which, let’s face it, is probably more Carroll’s style.

It’s on the market for £1.3 through Davis Beyga Estates

3. Luis Suarez

Uruguayan born striker Luis Suarez will up sticks from Dutch club Ajax and relocate to Liverpool after being traded for a tidy £22.7 million.

We say: Family man Suarez, who has a daughter with wife Sofia, should head for Woolton, Merseyside, the suburb Fernando Torres has been calling home ahead of his move to Chelsea.

This four bedroom Grade II listed semi has recently been updated and features a lounge room, study, dining room and kitchen as well as a courtyard and detached garage with space for four cars.

It’s on the market with Entwistle Green for £1 million.

    I’m not sure about it’s Premier League credentials just yet but

    consider the following…… 20 mins from Kent House to London Blackfriars and City Thameslink!! wow, 25 mins to London Victoria!!, Direct trains to Kings Cross and Luton Airport, a tram ride to Wimbledon in 45 minutes and Croydon in 25 mins [From nearby Avenue Road]. From Clock House station one can go to London Waterloo and London Bridge. This is potentially a commuter nirvana.

    Couple these facts with A beautiful ‘village’ town centre in Beckenham, many nearby parks, plenty of young professional families, good schools [Alexandra and Churchfields [the head of the former being a national figure in Primary education]] and you have it.

    I have so far bought two flats in Ravenscroft and Birkbeck Roads, a stones throw from the untapped transport hub of Kent House Station.

    My friend has just completed a PhD entitled, ‘London Property, it’s future energy in the light of global recession’ or something like that. Her prediction in the short to medium term?? Buy in a little-known area called Kent House, why?? Because it offers stunning Edwardian/Victorian housing, fabulous transport links and all the pre-cursors to old fashioned ‘gentrification’.

    You have been warned!
