Why Lampard’s home work could earn him £4m

As Chelsea mid-fielder Frank Lampard considers a move to China one thing he will miss while at South-West China-based football club Guizhou Renhe will be his beloved and luxurious south west London home which could make him up to £4m.

While most footballers opt for Tudorbethan confections in the countryside, Lampard has been publicly splashing the cash on a huge six bedroom detached house he bought for just over £8 million in 2005 in a fashionable street not far from the Chelsea ground.

The Regency-era house, which he shares with his girlfriend TV presenter Christine Bleakley and his two daughters from a previous relationship, has been considerably remodeled in recent years so much so neighbours complained to the local council about the disturbance.

Lampard is said to have spent half a million refurbishing it and recently asked celebrity interiors expert Kelly Hoppen in to give it a contemporary feel following the renovations (pictured, below)

But if Lampard does sell up and move to Guizhou then he will pocket a fortune. An almost identical home next door is currently on the market for £11 million, some £4 million more than he paid for his and an extraordinary leap in value given Lampard’s sold for £2.9 million in 2000. The last property to sell on the street, a dozen or so doors down from Lampard’s, went for £6.3 million in 2009.

But Lampard’s street is not the most expensive locally. The former home of both Chris Evans and before that George Michael fetched £8.5 million several years ago in a neighbouring road and four years ago one of the detached houses on the same street sold for £12.5 million.
