Property Match of the Day – Aston Villa v West Bromwich Albion
Posted 17 September 2015 by Keith Osborne
What kind of new homes would you consider moving into if you were a professional footballer in the Premier League, earning thousands of pounds a week? That’s the question the Whathouse.com team has been asking itself ahead of next weekend’s West Midlands derby game between Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion.
We’ve come up with a couple of amazing new build homes that will fit the bill, providing a contrast between a leafy urban location and a property set in a delightful semi-rural village. Both provide easy access to the training facilities and matchday stadium and have the kind of exclusivity, privacy and high-end specification that you might expect as a millionaire buyer.
Here are our suggestions for the best new homes available for these teams’ players right now...
For the Aston Villa team...
Roman Lane, Little Aston, Sutton Coldfield (Fine & Country) - £2.5million
This exclusive gated development of just two properties is launching soon and is being marketed by the high-end agency Fine & Country on behalf of Romford Bespoke. As you would expect at this price, no effort has been spared to provide an exceptional specification for these houses, which both offer around 8,000 sq ft of accommodation and sit on a third-of-an-acre plot on the Little Aston Park Estate, home to the Little Aston Golf Club and just 20 minutes from the Aston Villa training facilities.
There is underfloor heating throughout, a large Siematic kitchen, automated lighting control system and oak staircases and doors. The basement houses a cinema room, games room, wine cellar and gym with steam room, reception rooms include the kitchen/family room, lounge, library/snug and dining room. There are multiple en suite bedrooms and the master bedroom comes with a large dressing room and en suite with his-and hers basins.

For the West Bromwich Albion team...
Beech House, Compton Fields, Combrook (Knight Frank) – £1.285million
This is a brand new, stone-built, barn-style family home in a semi-rural location with impressive views across the Warwickshire countryside. Fitting in beautifully with the established period homes of the area, this new build nonetheless benefits from being built to the very latest standards and offers nearly 3,400 sq ft of accommodation, with five bedrooms and a double garage. There are just four properties on this boutique development.
The buyer will find a feature reception hall with dog-leg staircase and ceramic tiled floor; zoned underfloor heating to the ground and first floors; a traditionally designed kitchen/breakfast room, family room with inglenook fireplace; reclaimed exposed ceiling beam, inglenook fireplace and solid fuel stive to the drawing room; formal dining room and study; and three en suite bedrooms, with the fourth and fifth sharing a jack-and-jill shower room.
