X Factor house is put back on the market to rent

The X Factor house is back on the market for rent following the end of the latest series, won by Sam Bailey.

09.01.14 X Factor 1

The seven bedroom detached property was revealed by Zoopla last year as the X Factor contestants moved in ahead of the live shows.

Number 9a Broad Walk, in London’ s Winchmore Hill, had plenty of space to accommodate the contestants, including Sam Callahan, Tamera Foster, Rough Copy, Luke Friend and Nicholas McDonald.

There are seven bedrooms, six bathrooms and a swimming pool with a sauna.

And perhaps most importantly – especially for the X Factor stars – added security is provided with the property being set behind gates.

It is available to rent for £20,000 a month, the equivalent of £4,615 per week. The estimated value of the property is more than £6m.

Nick Charalambous, of estate agents Winkworth, described Broad Walk to Zoopla at the time as “one of the most desirable in North London”.

The area is well known for attracting singers, with Lionel Richie and Cliff Richard both having previously lived there.

The area includes some relatively expensive, substantial family homes, and is a sought after location for families moving in to the area.

The average value of a property on the road Is £2.6m, but turnover is low, with just five homes in Broad Walk sold during the past five years. In the wider N21 postcode, the average property value is £more than £500,000.

UPDATED: Tulisa’s Hertfordshire home of less than a year is ‘under offer’

A luxury Hertfordshire mansion occupied by singer and former X Factor judge Tulisa has been sold.


09.01.13 Tulisa 1 

Edge House in Hatfield, Hertfordshire was first listed on Zoopla in November last year – just 11 months after the singer first got her hands on the keys.

It had an asking price of £4.5m and has been sold subject to contract.

The property is set behind an electric gated entrance, and has five bedrooms split over two levels, an indoor pool complex with a gym and cinema room, and a sweeping drive.

There is also a triple garage and extensive landscaped gardens, with just under two acres of land.

It is said to be in ‘one of the most desirable places to live in Hertfordshire’.

Lawrence Henry, of Statons, the estate agent handling the sale, told Zoopla: “It is a stunning home. The only part left from the original house on the site is the façade. It has been redeveloped to an exceptionally high standard. It is set in its own grounds and has a deep drive.”

It is understood the singer no longer lives at the property.

The N-Dubz star was arrested after being accused of setting up a drug deal to an undercover reporter. But the drugs trial at London’s Southwark Crown Court collapsed following a sting arranged by Sun investigative reporter Mahzer Mahmood.

The judge at the trial told jurors there were strong grounds to believe Mahmood had lied at a pre-trial hearing and the case was thrown out.

Revealed: 2013 X Factor House location

Another year and another set of X Factor hopefuls come up against the career-defining criticism of the show’s judges Gary Barlow, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger…yes, ITV’s X Factor is back on our screens.

And now it is live finals time, which means the contestants have settled into this year’s X Factor house – giving us the chance to do what we do best…a little property research. We love a challenge and have used the tools on to help us sniff out where the X Factor contestants will be living for the coming weeks. The properties are always exceptional and this year is no exception.

With the help of a little local knowledge, we were able to pin down the street via Zoopla and once again this year’s property lives up to expectations – a stunning multi-million pound property.

The 2013 X Factor house is situated on Broad Walk (number 9a), in London’s Winchmore Hill and we estimate its property value to be £6,130,794, with a rental value of £17,000 a month.

The detached property is located in what local estate agents describe as a highly sought after area.

Nick Charalambous, of estate agents Winkworth, described Broad Walk as “one of the most desirable in North London”.

He said: “A plethora of famous people have lived in the area in the past, including Lionel Richie and Cliff Richard.

“This area includes some relatively expensive, substantial family homes, and is a sought after location for families moving in to the area.

“There are also a number of great gastro pubs at the end of Broad walk, such as the King’s Head and Salisbury Arms, with Winchmore Hill green being the home for seasonal fetes and festivals.”

The average value of a property on the road is £2.6m, but turnover is low, with just five homes in Broad Walk sold during the past five years. In the wider N21 postcode, the average property value is £789,776.

Other properties in N21 for sale:

Where: Four bedroom detached house in Hoppers Road

Price: £789,995

Where: Three bedroom detached house in Ridge Road

Price: £575,000
